For a high-speed network on a small scale, nothing delivers like these stylish powerhouses. These fast, easy, and affordable Gigabit switches gives your home network the maximum capacity to handle huge bandwidth. Packed with ease-of-use features to simplify your networking experience, their sleek design makes them look great on a desktop - either flat or in the provided stand. The GS605 and GS608 move very large files such as high-end multimedia, gaming, Internet access, and other speed-intensive applications across your network instantly, and because they are standards-based, they painlessly integrate existing 10, 100, and 1000 Mbps devices on your network. The fan-less design results in silent operation allowing you to focus on your game or relax to your music. Matched with NETGEAR's thorough testing, the GS600 switches provide long-lasting performance you can count on.


Moves huge files fast! Features 5 or 8 high-speed, auto-sensing 10/100/1000 Mbps Ethernet connections. And because Copper Gigabit Ethernet is a full duplex standard, you can get up to 2000 Mbps on each port.


2 Year Warranty.
