Package and Contents
The box that the GS605AV comes in is not bad looking, but there is something about it that makes you cringe a little. Maybe it is the choice of colors or just the general layout, but it is just not pleasing to look at. Of course, it is a 5 port switch and not a work of art, so the packaging is not a deal breaker.
NETGEAR does include an image of the product on the front as well as highlighted features. One that is a nice touch is the "green" logo announcing that this switch uses up to 15% less power than others in its class.
The back has an odd diagram. It shows using this in place with a set of 200Mbps PowerLine adapters. I am not sure that doing that is a good idea. You are going to reduce a 1Gbps connection down to an effective 85Mbps pipe. This on its own will be a huge bottleneck. We have a pair of the NETGEAR XAV101 PowerLine adapters in house and will let you know if this is the case in another review.
Inside the box the goodies are very light. You get the GS605AV, a power adapter, a quick install guide and a single page on warranty information.
