    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 .

    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.

    We were having sporadic network connectivity problems. It would be OK then everyone would have issues. The new switch fixed the problem and was a great value. The in store assistance was very good at the North Springfield location.

    Great Value and Performance

    By Ed

    Verified Buyer

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

    Absolutely plug and play.

    I had a 8-port ProSAFE Switch but needed more ports due to the addition of more ethernet-based equipment to our intranet. I was very happy with the 8-port Pro SAFE so bought the 16 port. ProSAFE Switch.

    Installation was simple: I simply unplugged the 8 port and removed the ethernet lines. Then I plugged in the 8 port Switch, plugged in the line connected to our NETGEAR ProSAFE Firewall, and then plugged in the other ethernet lines. Wa-lah! Everything worked GREAT and FAST.

    That was about two weeks ago. Everything has worked flawlessly. I have added three other items so have used 12 of the ports. No problems!

    Truly deserves 5 stars!
