Unless you're going to get into enterprise/corporate level networking equipment, stay away from. Their consumer grade network hardware is trrraaassssshhhhhhh. Well, most of it. Somethings are great when it comes to switches. Most of the other stuff is POOP. 

This is the only netgear gigabit switch i've had really good luck with.

Tell me about it feels like something so simple should be available and reliable in a wide variety

 

the netgear has 2000+ reivews and worst review is a good review

linksys  sucks in routers but are they good in switches ?

 

Question is which one would you choose?

I honestly would go with that Netgear switch. In my 5+ years of buying those switches, I've never had one go bad. They are tanks.

I concur (for what it's worth). If you need something consumer grade, Netgear is the way to go.
