Good switch, but do your research, many things to consider
3 weeks ago
Summary: This is a nice switch if you need Power Over Ethernet (POE) for Devices such as IP Cameras etc. Keep in mind the power needed by each IP device and the switches capabilities. Another thing to consider is that one of the ports will generally be used to connect to a router unless you're using the...
Summary: Nice little switch. I was looking for something that offered switch management, PoE, port monitoring, and Gigabit speeds all at an affordable price. This switch meet all of my expectations and then some.
Summary: PROS: Excellent quality, works with my cameras, SFP connections. I wanted the SFP option so I could connect multiple boxes with fibre. SFP modules are extra. CONS: Small size uses heavy duty wall wart. Would prefer larger size and no wall wart.
Great switch but less expensive solution for my setup could have been used.

Summary: Great switch, but lost one star due to price. I got it without much research when in a hurry ordering equipment for my first security video camera installation, and later found 8 port POE insertion unit much cheaper that could have been combined with non-POE switch for same result at lower cost.
Summary: These work well and have no problem sustaining 800mbit/sec (the max I've pushed through them). The fact that you can use them with fiber with an adapter is a great selling point; as our bandwidth provider would only hand off a gig-e connection on fiber.
Summary: We purchased this switch to replace a previous switch that 'died', and also to provide PoE capability for 3 wireless access points. It supports a small number of network devices, and for the money, provides a respectable set of features. So far, we are satisfied with the purchase.
Summary: I bought this switch as an upgrade from my 4-port 100MB hub... talk about a difference! File transfer speeds are way up and gaming lag way down. Everything works as advertised and I definitely recommend it.
