Different people have different views to be honest.

Generally speaking i hardcode servers/printers and leave at auto desktops and laptops.

Re: Speed and duplex

There are some comments on this page about auto-negotiation:

I used to hard-code servers & any static devices, however I have had issues with hard-coding due to Server OS & Driver faults. So now unless there is a specific requirement I never hard-code anything.
