Great switch overall
 
The GS308E served its purpose perfectly and pleasantly surprised me with its capabilities. I purchased this switch expecting two things: gigabit speeds and VLAN capability. The switch delivered both of those as well as other features such as bandwidth limiting and QoS.

programs easy
 
and, as all NetGear products, plug n play, built like a tank....I like the smart switches for network security.... you pay a premium for this, but if security matters to you, small price...easy UI to work with, see NetGear site for details....if you only want a switch, then no sense paying this much extra for the smart component, as they cost less than halfkeep up the great work

Small, rugged, low power, easy to manage, updated VLAN switch
 
Our local HAM radio group's MESH network has been based on an earlier version of this Netgear switch, the GS105Ev2, so I was interested in trying this upgraded version. Both are managed Gigabit switches that run well off 12 volt battery power, with the software for the GS305E seeing itself as an upgrade for the software used with the GS105Ev2. I was reluctant to just upload the club's preconfigured configuration file into the new switch, in case anything important has changed between them, so in...

Almost perfect
 
I decided to upgrade from my previous Netgear switch to this brand new model. The only big differences between the old and new one were the color (my old one was white) and the fact that my old one was 'unmanaged'. The setup was very fast and easy. Just plug and play. Both units have similar power cables, and have the ability to connect 5 network cables (1 being the modem, with 4 additional devices). The devices I have are my Roku box, a PS4, a PC and a powerline network adapter. Do I notice a b...

Worked Great For Limiting Bandwidth
 
I have one client on my network that has become a bandwidth hog, and wanted to install a managed switch to perform that function. This one fit the bill quite nicely.=== The Good stuff ===* Like just about every Netgear device I have owned, it worked right out of the box. Unpack it, plug it in and make the connections and it immediately goes to work.* All ports came up as Gigabit Ethernet ports, and all the jacks and connectors fit snugly.* Setting up QoS and bandwidth limiting took all of about ...

Love this little switch / Insight app cannot manage switch
 
This is a great little switch. I am using it to service all of the video entertainment boxes (Roku, Xbox...) attached to the TV. It does a great job and I can hide it easily. I've become a fan of Netgear and the effort they place on app development for control of their various network devices. In this regard, I'm slightly less pleased with this switch. Netgear's Insight app can be used to register the switch and to discover its IP address, but you can't actually manage the switch with it. Instea...

Perfect switch for the desk
 
This is a review for the 5-port edition. Neither the 5 nor 8 port switch offer link aggregation-- the thing is this. These switches don't have a 10x uplink port. Without an uplink port aggregation is meaningless. Several reviewers have complained, and let me say this-- if you have a device that supports link aggregation you can afford a better switch and should be looking at about 2-3x this price range.That being said, this is a fantastic switch for, oh say, your average desk. I have 1 mac, 1 pc...

Simple to Setup, Power Features
 
These 300 Series Smart Managed Plus Gigabit Ethernet Switches are very easy to setup via a web browser. You can alternatively use the PC application. I use Safari on a Mac to manage the switch.Both GS switches are very competitively priced. They are only a little more than an unmanaged switch but allow for so much more control over your network. The 305E is rated at an impressive 2,531,294 hours of Mean Time Between Failures and 10 Gbps bandwidth. It is more than adequate for my small business n...

I couldn't get it to work properly after 2 hours of trying
 
My setup is Comcast Internet, a Netgear cable modem, Google WiFi, and a Mac ecosystem.So, first step, connecting the Netgear cable modem to the switch and the Google WiFi to the switch. Works perfectly. I'm thinking 5-star product here. Essentially I've recreated my WiFi setup, but now I have 3 high speed wired connections that I didn't have before. Great!I try to find the switch via wireless using the Discovery Tool. Nope. Can't see it.I then try to plug my MacBook into one of the wired etherne...
