Netgear Nighthawk Pro Gaming SX10 Review

Closer Look
The metal chassis encompasses the entire switch, including the base. It feels chunky and durable with absolutely no flex at all. There’s 10 LEDs along the back which can be configured independently and a larger LED zone in the “slit” at the front.

Moving round to the rear, it’s clear to see this switch means business. On the far left is a small button toggle which disables all LEDs on the device, handy if you’re gaming late at night and don’t want the distraction, or if you just hate RGB LEDs. There’s then eight Gigabit ethernet ports, numbered 10 – 3, then a pair of 10 Gigabit ports which can be aggregated to a maximum of 20Gbps, numbered 2 and 1. Finally, there’s the power connection but weirdly no power switch.

The base of the switch houses four rubber feet to prevent it from scratching your desk, but unfortunately no mounting points. Being able to mount this on the side of your desk or on a wall would obviously be advantageous.

There’s also a reset switch on the bottom, useful if you ruin your settings or lock yourself out of the device somehow.
