      Comments about Netgear ProSafe 5-Port Gigabit Desktop Switch:

      I use this by my desktop computer. Cat5e cable comes in from downstairs (router) and plugs into this gigabit switch. A short Cat6 cable goes to the desktop computer. Another short Cat6 cable stays close by to plug into either my laptop or notebook computers when I need them. Rubber pads on the bottom will keep it from moving around on top of a desk; however, I mounted it vertically on a wood shelf with the ports facing down with the included 2 screws. The cord on the included AC adapter was plenty long for my needs. The centerline distance between the holes in the back of the switch are 1-13/16" -- not 1-3/4" or 2". I don't know what led Netgear to pick what I would call a kind of non-standard dimension; it's much easier to pick off more common dimensions on a ruler than 1-13/16" when trying to install the switch. But overall it is a great product.

        It just plain works; what else needs to be said?
        The ports are located at the front of the unit; some, like me, may prefer them at the back.
        Be sure to connect all the Ethernet cables before connecting the power cord to the electrical outlet.

                  You just can't beat this little guy! I was looking for a very reliable gigabit switch that was also affordable... usually you can't even say that in the same sentence but you actually get both with this product. Netgear definitely sets a standard with this little switch. Did I mention how little it is also? great product, no bells and whistles... just flat out works.

                    We rent high end networkable video equipment. We have one of these units in almost everyone of our racks, or the larger version. Being a Gigabit unit it accommodates all of our equipment. We've never had one fail, and that is all the really matters.

                        plus 1 - Wall type power supplies are really shrinking - I think this one has an energy star rating as a result...

                        plus 2 - I have never had a problem with Netgear products.
