    Excellent product, with only one minor flaw., February 26, 2007

    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.

    Switch vs. Hub, July 1, 2008

    I had a 5-port HUB (using 3 of them) across the room from my main system. When transferring files I got a steady stream of collisions. Really slowed down the transfer due to all the retransmissions.

    The SWITCH was truly Plug & Play. Plugged everything in and it worked. It did all the address look-up and handshaking without human involvement. File transfers now run at full speed with no collisions.

    Highly recommended.

    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!
