Summary: This was a perfect addition to my network. I'm slowly converting ALL my cams to POE and freeing up my outlets. 24 ports are going to fill fast, As it's handling most of my computers as well, but I think I'll be ok with this one for now. Nice thing too is you can daisy chain or just add another unit if you need more ports.
Summary: As an IP PBX integrator, I was surprised that I can found Rack-Mount product on Walmart.com. Netgear has reliable products. Warmart is reliable channel. They are a perfect match for me. Hopefully, Walmart.com will carry other enterprise products and has a portal for people like us, system integrator, services providers.
Excerpt: Just finished a "Smart Home" installation utilizing Crestron electronics. There were 15 in-wall touch panels and a few other devices that receive power over Ethernet. This switch requires no setup, and truly was "Plug and Play". Much better than using single device PoE injectors!
Summary: My boss wanted us to be an all-Cisco shop, but for a 50 person company and with less than ten employees in this remote office, with less than 50% projected growth y-o-y, it didn't make sense to pay Cisco prices. We're using this as a PoE switch to power a dozen VoIP phones. This switch works well, it has a clunky web interface like any other SMB market switch, but who spends much time with that, beyond first setup?
Summary: You would think that this switch would be very simple, and it should be. The software on the switch is very buggy specifically when it comes to DHCP. I cannot get the switch to obtain an iP address and whats worse, I lose access when I do. Netgear knows that to be an issue and the latest firmware (18.104.22.168) on Netgear's web site is supposed to address this issue. I installed it with no success at resolution.
Summary: We have used these switches for our VoIP network in the office. We had a power even that knocked two out so I had to replace them. I was happy with the old units so I ordered the same model again. The old version was loud, it was the loudest unit in the rack, but these new ones are way quieter, as quiet as a PC. Overall this is a great POE switch that does what it is supposed to do.
