PoE and VLAN support out-of-box; needs better PoE labeling
15 February 2012
Summary: Pro: can plug in Cisco phones and other network hardware into it, without having to setup VLAN stuff on it first. Con: doesn't clearly label the PoE ports. Tip: use port 8 for your input feed, since 1-4 are for PoE devices.
Summary: This is a very basic 8 port switch with 4 set for PoE. It works very well, have not had any issues with it, and was easy to set up. Not much more to say--good value for the money, well built, let's see how long it lasts.
Summary: I bought this product to power Cisco PZT web cam. Nothing unexpected, no surprises. Works as promised. Some folks already noted that this product has only 4 PoE ports (I am OK with it), but it may be a cons for others.
Summary: power over Ethernet. flexibility to place on any location and help to reduce electric cables he Cisco SD208P 8-Port 10/100 Switch, a Cisco Small Business Unmanaged Switch, offers the performance and ease of use you need to get your business connected. Just plug in your Ethernet cables, connect a power cord, and go–there’s no software to configure. Use this switch to connect PCs, printers, and network storage to your network.
Summary: BEWARE the product information on the box and the owner's manual is a deception which indicates there are 8 PoE ports. Only after you examine the switch or read several pages into the owner's manual do you discover only 4 PoE ports and 4 regular ports. I returned it for the Trendnet TPE S44 which clearly states 4 and 4 on the ports. I saved myself $78 and am very happy with the Trendnet switch.
Excerpt: Da tempo nel campo del networking, Cisco è un marchio blasonato, non a caso ovviamente, i suoi prodotti sono ovunque, per esempio di recente nel film Transformers 3, alcuni apparecchi che si vedono, portano il marchio Cisco. Questo piccolo Switch è dedicato ad un uso professionale, piccoli uffici li supporta benissimo, ha 8 porte totali che viaggiano a 10/100, di cui 4 hanno il POE che quindi alimenta anche altri apparati, telefoni, videocamere di sorveglianza o altro.
