I haven't unplugged this switch since I plugged it in for the first time 2.5 years ago and it hasn't failed or given me a single problem in that time. I'd forgotten about it until I saw my amazon purchase history and realized that it has been this long since I had bought this switch.

I wish I could say the same thing about my other networking hardware.

Excellent product, with only one minor flaw. Feb. 26 2007
By Jeremy Chadwick - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
If you're looking for an affordable gigabit switch that doesn't suffer from strange auto-negotiation (speed/duplex) problems, this switch is for you.

This product is easily superior to the Netgear GS605, which may appear identical in functionality, but in actuality is not. The GS605 behaves very badly when it comes to speed and duplex auto-negotiation, resulting in incorrect speed being negotiated with Marvell, some nVidia, and some Broadcom PHYs. The GS105 does not suffer from these problems, proving the hardware in the GS105 differs from that of the GS605.

The GS105 also has an incredibly small AC adapter; it's no where near "brick" size. However, on a power strip that has AC outlets next to one another (horizontal, not vertical), this product will probably block the AC outlet next to the one you install it in. This won't happen with vertically-oriented power strips. Just a FYI...

The reason I ranked this product 4/5 stars is because of temperature -- the GS105 runs incredibly warm (borderline hot) for such a small device. Other users have reported the same issue. It's a minor drawback, but is worth noting for others who may wonder the same question.

If the temperature is a big concern, consider purchasing a Hawking Technologies HGS5T, which is identical in functionality to this product, runs much cooler, but has a larger footprint, and a "brick" AC adapter.

Gigabit made simple March 21 2004
By Sean Edmison - Published on Amazon.com
This switch is exactly what I expected it to be: solid. Just like the other Netgear equipment I've used, the GS108 is completely hassle-free. My whole house was literally wired for gigabit Ethernet in no more time than it took to plug in the cables. I took it out of the box, plugged in the power cord, and plugged in connections (including a router and the patch cables to the rooms in my home), and went about my networking. It's completely idiot-proof, since all 8 ports automatically detect connection speed and uplink/downlink (meaning that no special cables are needed to hook up additional switches or routers). Plus, the indicator lights show which ports are in use, and at what speeds (10Mb, 100Mb, or 1Gb).
The form factor is great, too: At about 9 inches wide by 4 inches deep by 1 inch thick, it's small enough that I was easily able to place it inside the structured wiring panel, and so light that a little heavy velcro holds it fast. Plus, it doesn't put out a lot of heat; even with the door to the panel closed, it feels warm but never hot to the touch.

IT'S SMALL! Aug. 24 2007
By Cholla Boy - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
I think this was the smallest gig switch I could find, so I bought it. I've owned several other Netgear switches and have really liked them. This one is no different - works as advertised straight out of the box, although a bit warm as many have mentioned (a Netgear feature). All ports are on one side, and I like the fact that it has mounting holes and hardware that permit you to hang it out of sight so all that cable mess can stay off the top of the desk. Mounted with the ports facing down, all cables come up into the box neatly so I didn't experience any cabling issues as some have mentioned. Two thumbs up!

GS108E vs. GS108T..."Smart" vs "Managed" March 11 2012
By K. Kelly - Published on Amazon.com
The Netgear GS108E is a "smart" gigabit switch for people that just want a plug-and-play experience: Power it up, plug in devices to be networked together and boom. Done.

Add the $15 rebate and the total cost is about $55.

If you need to configure the GS108E beyond it's basic functions, you need to install an included Windows management app...So Linux only networks need not apply.

The Netgear GS108T looks exactly the same, but is a "managed" gigabit switch with it's own web management console served up on it's own firmware web server...Manageable via any OS that has a web browser.

But at $90 with no rebate, the GS108T costs almost twice as much as the GS108E.

Both the GS108E and GS108T support VLAN tagging and QoS for Skype-type services.

I cheaped out and purchased the the GS108E...And while I wish I had the web console of the GS108T, the GS108E is probably the best bang-for-the-buck 8-port Gigabit switch on the market right now.

Performed as Promised May 15 2008
By Dan M. Beadle - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
This is a boring category - especially for a small business with only moderate networking requirements.

I needed a short depth form factor to fit into a rack mount system. This device fit.

I wanted 1 GBPS to maximize desktop to NAS backup. This unit delivered. I can max out the link using Norton Ghost to DLink NAS from my Dell desktop. There was no performance degradation from adding 100MB and 10MB devices to the switch (there isn't a lot of traffic on the network).

So, it simply delivered on all needs.
