Netgear ProSAFE XS708E 10 Gigabit Switch Review

Netgear ProSAFE XS708E




Here we get our first look at the Netgear ProSAFE XS708E. There are eight 10GBase-T RJ45 ports and one SFP+ port shared with last RJ45 port.




Status LEDs indicate power and, in the event of a failure, the fan status. Just below, we found a recessed factory default button.




The port configuration is straightforward. There are eight RJ45 ports, with the last being shared with an SFP+ port. You can run an SFP+ to an optical fiber adapter or a Twinax cable. We tested an Intel SFP+ optical from an Intel X520-SR2 and it worked as expected.




The back of the switch has a Kensington lock adapter, the power plug connector, and a sticker that shows the serial and MAC address numbers.








Air flows from the left side of the case and exhausts on the right side.
