Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great, Cheap Managed Switch Picked up this 5-port, managed layer 2 switch for my home lab. Perfect for throwing between a WiFi access point and your router to implement VLANs or other layer 2 features such as port mirroring. Very easy to set up and I've noticed no performance issues.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Device I purchased this device to keep from having to run another network cable from three rooms over to my bedroom. I did not feel like going in the crawl space to run this cable so I purchased this switch to provide internet to two devices. I went from freezing media streaming with 16Mbs to hardwire 78Mbs download and 92Mbs upload. This product was well worth the money. There is no issues streaming HD movies plus 6- 4mp ip cameras attached to the switch. I am getting 1Gbs on 2 ports and 100Mbs on the media streaming port. The change comes from the streaming device limitation. Great product. I would recommend this GS305E switch.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from GS305E is Perfect for me Bought the Netgear GS305E for a few good reasons. 1, I'm not very IT savvy and very happy with Netgear products, support and straight forward install. 2, I wanted something to alleviate wifi burden on my router. 3, and speed up connection to a personal laptop along with 2 work laptops. This switch was the perfect solution at a great cost. Being managed, it's more than I need but I have the capabilities if necessary. Simple set up - which also could be due to existing Netgear set ups, but those were straight forward too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent managed device, helps debug issues Excellent little device, the management console is helpful to debug connections from vintage computing devices which can't always negotiate connections with modern switches. With this switch I can set the port down to 100Mbps or 10Mbps and it really helps.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works as Intended I bought this as I needed another ethernet access point for the new AV receiver I purchased. Set up was easy and working as intended.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wireless perfectly This works perfectly. It is NOT plug and play. There is a little bit of set up involved. Super easy though. Once it's set up, you will experience faster speeds and better coverage throughout the whole house. Plus, you can set up a guest wifi and password so they do not have access to your main account.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Switch noise The device adds significant white noise to my computer speakers, that are plugged in a different place completely than this device. Very annoying.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 5-Port GigaBit managed Switch Absolutely remarkable ! Easy setup and install. I did not realize my old hub was the choking point of my network. Now, with this gigabit managed switch, I am blasting thru !! I went from 94mb to 240 mb download for literally pennies !! Thank You Netgear !!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great little switch! I have IPTV devices at home and needed something to handle IGMP snooping along with VLAN capabilities. This little guy fits the bill perfectly. Easy to configure and manage, and rock solid stability. Combined with a fanless design, I'm hoping this lasts me a long time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome switch! So, this may be a cheap 5 port managed switch but I was totally impressed with this thing. I was able to set it up in about 5 minutes total including the registration. The firmware was easy to update, the web interface was great, and you can set up multiple VLANS and even choose which port is on what VLAN. I was expecting this to only do 1 VLAN but now that I know what this thing is valuable of we will be using a lot more of these. Thanks Netgear for another great reliable product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Switch!! I needed a small switch to hard-wire my computers to my router as some of my clients require an ethernet connection instead of wi-fi. This switch does the trick at a GREAT price!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from better than expected My network has drastically grown this last year and these switches were the right move before I knew it. Each of my 4 supports a hardwired apple tv, computer, and high demand netgear wifi 6 access point. I’ve never had a network drop with over 60 home automation devices!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works well - missing ARP table While the switch works well, it would be nice if the management portal had the ability to display the MAC addresses (ARP table of the devices connected to each port. To truly function as a switch, that table must exist internally, why not display it?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from NETGEAR 5-Port Gigabit Ethernet Plus Switch This switch had just enough ports available to me, and is very fast transmitting data. I don't notice any slowing at all. I really am glad I got this... it is working with a security camera system and 2 computers. Thank you!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best port for the money! Plug-in to your Ethernet and it’s ready to go. I used this to split one Ethernet cord into 3 (a security camera system, a computer, and printer with everything running I still get 900 mbps on my 1G internet l. Awesome!!
