Get a new Netgear GS308 Switch

It is a switch, not a Nintendo Switch. It is a Netgear 8-port Gigabit Ethernet Unmanaged Switch.  I ordered it from Amazon.ca on Feb. 18. The price is $26.99. Plus tax, the total is $30.00.

The device is made in Thailand.

GS308v3, version 3.

The official product data-sheet. 300-Series_Unmanaged_DS

 

The features I like:

  • Auto-MDI/MDIX eliminates the need for crossover cables
  • LED indicators for ease of use
  • Energy-efficient technology for power savings
  • Fanless design for silent operation
  • Auto-negotiation for automatic connection at the highest common speed between switch and an end device
  • Non-blocking switching architecture for maximum throughput at wire speed
  • 802.1p QoS for traffic/frame prioritization
  • Plug-and-play; no setup required
  • Durable and rugged metal case
  • Desktop or wall-mountable
  • Ideal for small office and home networks
  • Standards-based technology ensures interoperability with any standards-based devices in the existing network

Look at the back of GS308v3

Here is the inside of this switch.

I used to use a Wireless router as a switch. Only 4 ports. Now I replace it with this Netgear GS308 switch, 8 port. It is quiet and energy-saving.
