What gives? A new one with an lifetime warranty is $174.99 (https://www.amazon.com/NETGEAR-GS724T-400NAS-Lifetime-Protection-GS724Tv4/dp/B00I5W5EGA) vs this one for $10 less with a 90 day warranty (unless Woot! is not considered an authorized Netgear reseller per the warranty terms)? Netgear switches seem to fail after 4-5 years (read the reviews on the mothership. I am here because my 16 port one just recently failed after 5 years and I needed more ports). The biggest gripe about the V4 that it has to use Java, has been fixed by the firmware issued in Jan of 2020.
Correct. We can’t guarantee that Netgear will honor a warranty from Woot as we’re not an authorized reseller.
