5.0 out of 5 stars Plug 'n play, 27 Feb. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: NETGEAR GS308-100UKS 8 Port Gigabit Ethernet 10/100/1000 Mbps Switch (Accessory)
Plus points:
Great to have a substantial metal case instead of the usual plastic.
Genuinely plug and play: just seems to work.
Does 1000 Mbps so either makes the most of existing network or (in my case) gives some 'futureproofing'.
Cheap compared to their 'big business' equivalents.
Minus points:
Would be better for desktop use if ethernet and power input sockets were all on the same side, or power socket on small side.

I know what you mean about the power and Ethernet connections.

It really does annoy me that Netgear make the plastic-housed switches with both power and data connections on the same side of the unit, but insist on having those same connections on opposite sides of metal-housed switches.

Also, why no black version of the plastic units?

We're not all Apple hipster/fanboys who want everything in white.

Some of us are real men who want our electronics in any shade of BLACK. :)
