    Do you need a $100 Ethernet switch targeted at gamers? Probably not ... but you'll also probably want one.
    That's what the Netgear S8000 is, an Ethernet switch that makes up part of the company's high-performance Nighthawk line. An Ethernet switch is a pretty boring product. It's basically there to split your wired network connection between multiple devices.
    So why, then, did Netgear make one that looks like something from a science fiction movie, that lights up, is pretty darn heavy, and retails for $100? Well, if you listen to the marketing, it's for gamers. And while the price tag is high and the design perhaps unnecessary, it's the smarts inside it that make the difference.
