Excerpt: We've bought quite a few of these units recently as we've moved to a VOIP phone system and didn't have enough data ports in our offices to cope.
These switches are silent, they stay cool and are cheap. Plus the POE ports work seamlessly with our new VOIP handsets.
Excerpt: With 4 ports Gig PoE and 4 standard Gig ports this allows us to run our IP based PoE phones and network printer and files server all in one switch at lightning fast speed. Truly plug and play.
Excerpt: This switch is the complete setup on a small IP camera system. It provides 8 ports with 4 being POE. With a 1 gig internal it reduces the glitches and freezing that you get from a 10/100 switch. This is my go to for the smaller IP camera jobs!
Excerpt: I purchased this switch to provide data and power connections for my IP cameras (POE). The switch is nice and compact and performs great giving me 4 powered connections and 4 standard Ethernet, with all connections providing 1gb speed. I highly recommend if you need a fast POE unmanaged switch.
Summary: I didn't see any indication of poor build quality or experience any problems. I like it so much I'm ordering a second one for a different part of the house.
Pros: 4 POE ports Gb ports + 4 normal Gb ports, low power usage, and silent. Exactly what you would expect. Powers up a Cisco phone as well as two POE Network security cams no problem. According to kill-a-watt it uses much less power to power things via POE as opposed to power bricks.
Cons: Costs about 4 times what a non POE 8 port switch costs.
Excerpt: I have internet cameras in my driveway and shop and needed a reliable POE switch for them. This is my second one and would buy again when I need another. Just wish I could find a 24 port to replace my main switch that is as reliable and reasonably priced.
