Gs108t v2 v3 differences

Perhaps by google-fu is sub par, but I cannot seem to find a comparison between the v2 and v3 Gs108t switches.  Can anyone help?

 

Also, does anyone know when they will be available in Europe/UK?

Model: GS108T|ProSafe 8 ports gigabit smart switch

New hardware version, mandatory product registration, optional Insight cloud manageable - beyond this the same feature set.

 

I'm not Netgear, so no idea about product availability for the GS108Tv2 (GS108T-100GES) to the European market.

I saw a post here saying that the latest firmware has dispensed with the mandatory registration.

 

Some posts also aluded to new features in v3 - but I can’t find any info.  Are you sure about same feature set?

This was a different story. The new out-of-the-box firmware had not allowed an offline login using the admin account, instead one had to use the [My]Netgear cloud login every time. This was superseeded by an initially limited Web UI, making the product registration mandatory, and finally allows a local admin authentication again.

Well, my information was a little bit lazy - some new feature added might be limited static IPv4 routing.

 

What feature are you behind?

I just want to know if I should seek out or wait for a v3 or buy a v2 now. That would depend on the feature set of each.
