Product Description

Industry's First SMB Switch with 10-Gigabit Connectivity

NETGEAR® continues to lead the networking industry with the ProSAFE® Plus 10-Gigabit Switch (XS708E), the market's fi rst costeffi cient 10-gigabit switch. Built for Small and Medium Businesses, the XS708E provides eight 10G connectivity ports at a price that SMB customers can aff ord. With the enormous growth of network traffi c and network storage in recent years, many SMBs, like their large Enterprise counterparts, are operating with big data, requiring their network to upgrade to 10G for better network performance and improved business efficiency. The XS708E is the right solution for this need.

Does what it says. Aug. 22 2013

So far this has done exactly what a switch should do: Not be noticed. In a rack the noise is unnoticed. It's louder than a standard desktop but nowhere near any of my 1-4u servers. Still would not want it sitting on my desk.

Great switch except it requires Windows to configure Feb. 4 2015
By A. M. Williams - Published on

I am using this for some 10GBase-T development work I am doing. So far this switch works well and I can maintain full 10GBps line rate with this switch.

The main drawback of the switch is it requires Windows in order to configure it. Since my entire floor is running Linux it makes it rather difficult to run the configuration software.

For the price, though, I'm not going to complain. It's cheaper to buy this switch than to buy a standalone 10GBase-T to SFP+ adapter and having the SFP+ port is a nice addition.

The switch is also fairly quiet which is nice since it is sitting in my cubical rather than in a server rack.

Using this between a Dell R720XD and several other computers ... Nov. 20 2014
By Amazon Customer - Published on
Using this between a Dell R720XD and several other computers and the network - the main reason is that the Dell backup workstation has a 10GB network card - using Vranger to backup all VM's I'm sustaining almost 800k per second. Switch is performing as expected.

How Fast Can You Say "FAST"? April 30 2013
By Bruce Normann - Published on
The SMB IT world has been waiting for the point where 10 Gigabit Ethernet (10GbE) becomes affordable.

It just happened!

With eight 10GBASE-T ports that can use the CAT 5e and CAT 6 cabling that's already in place, and one SFP+ port that can interface with almost any fiber links you may have, it won't cost anymore than the purchase price to integrate the XS708E into your operations, either.
Good switch. Nov. 10 2015

Wish it had a true web interface instead of having to use software to configure it, but, overall it will do what needs to be done. This is a smart switch, not a managed switch. The difference is pretty significant in terms of what can and can't be configured, but, as I'm using this for a storage network, it doesn't have to have a lot of features, just have low latency, and, for my particular use-case, low noise, low heat, and low power utilization.

I was thinking it would be louder. When first turned on, the fans spin up and it sounds like a typical enterprise-class switch. After a few seconds, it does quiet down significantly. I have this in a closet (home lab) where I have a portable AC unit keeping my systems at around 74F (same as the rest of the house in summer, the portable AC is there to keep the room cool as a supplement / offload to the house AC) - anyhow my point being is that at this temp for the room, the switch fans are not kicking up and the AC fan blow is louder; as well as the 5 Lenovo TS140 servers I have in there with them being set at the "Thermal Profile" or whatever it is in bios that uses a more aggressive fan profile curve.

All in all, not bad. I've not PUSHED it to see if it can deliver 10g to each port at the same time, but, it does seem to be delivering what I'm asking of it.
