    I installed this for a customer on an emergency basis and am very pleased. I like this switch because connections and link lights are all up front and makes it easier than a Linksys (workgroup) switch - which plugs in the back and lights in the front. In a wiring closet, there isn't much room and the easiest way to use this is to have the patch cables in front.

    This product is fine when using PC's. Most PC's don't have gigabit NIC cards so it does the job. If your looking for fast throughput you would want to go to a different line of Netgear switch (prosafe line) . All Macintosh computers in the last 10 years have gigabit cards built in so you can transfer all your data 10/100/1000 speed. This one though is a decent bang for the buck. Quiet and should do justice for a small LAN, a bit pricey but adequate .

    Works Greatly!

    Comments about NETGEAR ProSAFE 16-Port Fast Ethernet Desktop Switch FS116:

    I purchased this item to replace a pre-existing and discontinued switch in my work office. I am not too educated when it comes to networking and servers, so, I wanted something that was plug-n-play and that required little to no set-up. This was on sale when I purchased it. I purchased it, took it to the office, took it out of the box, and as soon as I plugged it in, it began working! Great deal and price for the item. No issues to date.

    Netgear 8 port switch has been working for 16 months and failed so replaced it with a 16 port switch. They are plug and play so no big deal to set up. Called Netgear for help and they replaced it , Lifetime warranty.

    Comments about NETGEAR ProSAFE 16-Port Fast Ethernet Desktop Switch FS116:

    We have purchased a number of these and always end up having to replace them. Why do I keep buying them? We can't afford more expensive ones and this are the ones that have worked for us. I guess it's a little silly, but we'll see how the next four turn out.
