solid build and quiet switch = happy chappy

Advantages: small compact size, metallic body, passive cooling=no noise
Disadvantages: gets a bit hot during summer

Well there isn't much to say about this switch. I've bought 4 of these and they are all working fine. This is basically the big brother of the FS108 switch. The FS108 is 100mb Full duplex switch (full duplex meaning it can send and receive data at the ...

No time to queue.

Advantages: Well-Made, Fast as Hell.
Disadvantages: None.

There isn't much you can normally say about a Network Switch and what you can say is already spoken for. The GS108 has 8-ports which all Gigabit enable (1000Mb/s or 125MB/s) which all have embedded LEDS in. The right hand one lights up if the connectio ...

USB is for me

Advantages: Have plenty of USB ports at any time

Saved me from the world behind the hard drive!

Advantages: Saves alot of messing around, can add more than one.
Disadvantages: One of the connecting cables is facing the wrong way.
