    8 port is really a 7 port… but meh, it works greatThe switch works a treat with PoE security cameras back to NVR with one cable (Hiseeu NVR and cameras). The only down side is there are 8 ports, of which you connect your router to one of them, which leaves 7 ports for devices. Not thrilled about that, I have an 8 channel NVR but can only connect 7 cameras. For *my* application, I would have been better off just getting a true 8 port PoE switch from Hiseeu. If you are okay with the limitations, this switch is solid and reliable. 10/10

    Wonderful POE switch which I use for muliple computers and a security camera systemI used another POE switch which did not work for my gig speed, so I got this Netgear. It has POE for the cameras and 1gb speeds for my other computers. The switch puts out per port more than enough for the cameras. Excellent product.

    Works fineI haven’t logged into it yet, but I plugged it in and powered two cameras and a mikrotik 305 off it just fine.

    Worth the moneyThis product is great and easy to install. IP addressable and a quality PoE switch. Used to connect a couple surveillance cams and connect devices to the network.

    Netgear ImpressesNetgear has really impressed me with the features they build into their equipment for small businesses and home offices. I used this switch, along with the 24-port version, for a recent VoIP conversion. Setup was easy and the performance has been flawless.

    Update your firmware for the GS305EP & GS308EPI have had several of these in service. The web interface always was terrible and most of the time didn’t display properly. Had to refresh multiple times to get the interface to show properly. I just did a firmware upgrade on them to V1.0.0.10 and those problems haven’t resurfaced since. Maybe lucky…I don’t know but I’ll take it as a win.

    More features than you need.It’s a 5 port switch with trunking. I don’t know who expected that on a 5 port switch, but for the the one person who needs it it’s there.
