Best desktop gigabit switch

The Netgear GS108 has been a rock-solid, 24/7, always-on, seriously dependable Internet switch-point for office / desktop use.

I have been using one as an internal gigabit switch-point between gigabit LANs and a FTTH fiber-gateway for 5+ years now. Not one outage!

It is, however, a dumb switch. Meaning: it is not a managed smart-switch, but rather more of a "stupid" repeater-block. But an extraordinary one at that :)
