Summary: Where I will be creating my POE network this weekend, I must say I am impressed with what I see so far. The switch is hefty for its size telling me it is a good quality construction. I will assume the weight is not only the skeletal framework but sizeable heat sinks to handle its transfer of power. I am also impressed with the notification lights which burn different colors based on network status or power use.
Summary: this unit is virtually the same as the T P link and a few others from China. it is a low cost POE unit to create an IP network and connect a few IPc cameras too, then to a router, not flashy with all the QOS and managing features of more expensive switches but it is designed for small networks.
Summary: I bought this POE switch quite some time ago for the purpose of installing and configuring IP cameras. I'm an alarm technician and use the switch several times a week, either at the office or in the field, to set up POE IP cameras. Being in the field this little switch has seen some abuse, but despite being dropped, stepped on, rained on, etc, it still works great. I bought a second one for a customer to power their 4 POE cameras in a warehouse.
Summary: I have 3 Sharx Security SCNC3606 Cat5 PoE Wired Weatherproof Outdoor MPEG4 IP Network Camera with Infrared Night Vision and built in DVR I purchased here on Amazon and one Mobotix M12 for security at my house. I wanted a low cost PoE switch that would reliably power all four cameras and this has worked flawlessly for 6 months running 24 hours per day.
