This is a pretty good product for very basic network connectivity

Summary: This is a pretty good product for very basic network connectivity. What I like best about it, is that its stable hardware with gigabit ports, and supports POE. However, if you are looking for more advance IOS features, you will have to dig into your pockets, and get a more expensive switch.
GE should come disabled by default but if you know to look for it then you should be good. I would have bought a larger one thou

Summary: pricey but well workth it if you need PoE and some of the other advanced functions. BE SURE TO TURN OFF THE GREEN ETHERNET. I had an issue with IP cameras continually disconnecting after about a day, turned off the green ethernet and all is now well.
Summary: It's Cisco. It's high price but the environment that is it used for, it has held up well.
Pros: It has POE is why I bought it. Owning for over a year, not a single port has burnt out. It has performed very well in the amount of traffic that it has is going through all it's ports constantly.
Cons: The web interface to it can be a little slow at times, but considering it's environment it isn't too bad.
