NetGear GS308 SOHO 8-Port Unmanaged Gigabit Ethernet Unmanaged Network Switch $28 + Delivery (Free with Prime) @ Amazon AU

1210

Great price for this switch as it is very durable in its metal enclosure. Make sure to pick Amazon AU as the seller. Currently listed as being available in 1-2 months but surely it won't take that long.

    It might take 1-2 months if stock is being slow sea freight ship imported to Amazon from overseas.

    Showing $43 for me!! How did you manage to get $28 ?

    Here's a cheaper alternative ($25 with Amazon AU as seller) which looks the same specs-wise, only difference being that the ports are at the back, as is the power port.

    Also, you get 5% off if you're a Prime member, bringing it down to $23.75

      Metal housing is well worth the extra.

        That may be the case for some, but for me I prefer one where the ports and power port is at the back, to suit my existing setup. Each to their own.

    Does this model support POE?

    Description suggests it does but not in specs

    "Power-over-Ethernet (PoE) support is also available for supplying both power and data"

    •  

      Looks like it doesn't - that's the NETGEAR GS308P
      Description is a bit misleading

    •  

      I think the NETGEAR GS308P supports POE not the GS308

  •  

    Whats the difference between normal network switch and unmanaged switch ?

    •  

      I think it's just plug and play

      • +3 votes

        Correct. A managed switch you have to log in to and configure

        • +1 vote

          A managed switch you can login and configure, not have to. If you don't, it'll run exactly like a plug-and-play unmanaged switch. That would be a waste though. :)

      Managed ones can do VLAN to segregate traffic but needs a configuration and some knowledge

    12% cashback with Shopback (ends 23:59, Monday 27/5)
    - https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/459332

    Also, I think there should still be FREE delivery, if total is over AU$ 49 (ie. more than 2 x switches),
    so find another OzBargainer in same city, to share the cost of buying 2 x switches :-)

  •  

    Does this switch also support PoE? Only mentioned in the description "Power-over-Ethernet (PoE) support is also available for supplying both power and data across a single CAT-5 ethernet cable to devices such as IP security cameras, VoIP phones, wireless access points, etc.", however not anywhere else in the specs.

  •  

    Be careful with Netgear, I bought one of these switches and it had software issues after a week.
    Support couldn't fix the issue and authorised a return

      It's unmanaged though

    Awesome, just got one with the $30 voucher I got from the 10TB drive pricing error a few days ago

    •  

      Do you still get the 12% Shopback cashback if you use the $30 Amazon credit? I'm in the same boat so keen to know

      •  

        that would be filthy. Shopback apparently takes a couple of days to come through so I'll have to wait and see

          cashrewards seems to be lazy these days. Hear more of shopback offers lately

    Great price for thiis. It’s a shame to see the price for the cheapest 8 port 10GbE switch is still as high as $800 on Amazon AU.

    •  

      10gbe ports are usually utilised for uplinks/downlinks. What would consumers want with one?

      • +1 vote

        There are plenty of uses for 10GbE now for consumers, especially with NVME SSD’s becoming more and more common. Even the Apple Mac Mini and iMac Pro have 10GbE networking.

    •  

      I managed to get the 5 port 10GbE Netgear Xs505m during the last 20% off sale. You'll probably be able to get it (or the 8 port) cheap during the PEOFY sale. That's also if you're going for unmanaged.

  •  

    I have a feeing that it's GS308-100PAS with forient plug, not australian model GS308-100AUS, did anyone confirm the model number?

    •  

      It’s the Aussie plug.

  •  

    Anyone one what is different between the 108 and 308?

    • +1 vote

      The GS308 is a SOHO switch aimed for the home market, 3 year warranty.
      The GS108 is a business-grade switch with lifetime warranty.

      •  

        Ok thanks. Specs are identical so assume better parts used in the 108

  •  

    The term ‘unmanaged’ sounds negative - what does it do?

    • +1 vote

      Put simply, unmanaged just means … "normal". It lets all your devices talk to each other.

      A managed switch is only used in larger corporate environments where there's a need to have virtual LANs, monitor stats, QoS, etc.

    •  

      It means that it's not a smart switch. Instead it's an old fashion switch which has no traffic management feature.

  •  

    Has anyone received their switch?

    •  

      Ended up ordering a 208 - it arrived today.

    •  

      Mine is still at the "We've got your order" stage, "Arriving Jun 24 - Jul 23".

      •  

        Thanks. A bit of a wait for me then. I ordered mine through another ozbargainer so can't check the status myself.

        •  

          Still Arriving Jun 24 - Jul 23. :(

  •  

    Mine got shipped yesterday.

  •  

    Mine just got shipped yesterday. Previously it had an ETA of "Arriving Jul 24 - Jul 27" so it is way earlier than I anticipated haha. Woohoo!
