100Mbps and Gigabit switch on the same LAN

I have a simple 10/100 router at home. Suppose I connect a gigabit switch to one of its ports and several gigabit devices to the switch.

I just set this up at my house two weeks ago. It works fine. Gigabit switch runs at gigabit (as it should) for things that have gigabit nics and 100 for the rest. I have read some places that some gigabit switches will only be as fast as the slowest device connected. I do not know if this is true, but I bought the Netgear GS108 Switch and it does not do that.
