Summary: Works just like advertised. Accepts and supports 8 ports from one single input. Expands the ethernet ports for office use. We have heavy network users and this puppy has a lot of data running through this switch and it has been running famously now for well over a year without any issues. Nice product from a reputatable manufacturer. If I need to add another switch to our network - Cisco is getting the nod.
Summary: If you have a bunch of cisco stuff, these are nice, they have 4 ports PoE and you can see all the MAC addresses behind them from a central switch for easy debugging. These Cisco switches are expensive. Excuse me, I repeated myself.
PoE and VLAN support out-of-box; needs better PoE labeling

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.
