For a high-speed network on a small scale, nothing delivers likes these compact powerhouses. Equipped with five auto-sensing 10/100/1000 Mbps UTP ports, NETGEAR ProSafe GS105 switches give your network the capacity to handle huge workloads. If your network is configured to support jumbo frames, ProSafe GS105 switches will forward them, as well as honoring priority tags at both the layer 2 and layer 3 level. This means they move very large files across your network instantly, and keep the high priority traffic moving. Packed with ease-of-use features to simplify your networking experience, its trim design makes it an easy fit for a desk or mounted on a wall. The durable metal chassis protects interior working parts and the fanless design results in silent operation. Matched with NETGEAR's thorough testing, the ProSafe GS100 series switches provide long-lasting performance you can count on.

Potent
Moves huge files fast! Features up to eight high-speed, auto-switching 10/100/1000 Mbps Ethernet connections. And because Gigabit Ethernet is a full duplex standard, you get up to 2000 Mbps on each port. The GS100 Series provides jumbo frame support up to 9,000 byte frames.

Capable
Integrates 10-, 100-, and 1000-Mbps devices on the same network. Every port automatically senses the right speed and full/half duplex mode, and Auto Uplink technology automatically adjusts for straight-through or crossover cables.

Trim
Sized to save space, this sturdy metal switch is compact and fits easily on a desk or mounts on a wall, making it ideal for home and small office environments.

Easygoing
LEDs embedded in RJ-45 jacks make for easy monitoring. Provides noiseless operation. Supports PC or Mac O/S (operating system).

Slick Guru

Strengths: Very fast and easy to use

Weaknesses: Transferring files of 100GB+ puts a lot of strain on the switch.

Summary: Overall I am pleased with the performance of the GS105. I transfer a large amount of data weekly through the GS105 between several computers and I definitely see a performance difference compared to transferring files with other switches.

Norm

Strengths: Plug it in and it works.

Weaknesses: Nothing that I have seen.

Summary: I use the device to run a printer and I have not had any issues whatsoever. It is exremely passive ... just sits there and performs to and beyond what one should expect of a switch of this nature. I would higly recommend this devise for this application and any others that might be deemed appropriate.

Scott M

Strengths: Design, Construction, Networking Flexibility/Auto-Sensing

Weaknesses: none

Summary: Netgear has always been top of the line in terms of construction and design. And Netgears unmanaged gigabit switches with autosensing on each port are absolutely the most competitive product on the market. You cant go wrong with these switches.
