Summary: It has been my experience that PoE switches have a higher failure rate then standard switches. This switch has a lifetime warranty.
Pros: This is a stackable, rack mountable PoE. If you are looking for a switch for a IP based phone or camera system this will fit in many application. The PoE watts per port meets the needs of most devices I have seen so far. The case is solid. The price per port is very good on this switch.
Cons: The fans can get a bit loud and this will generate some heat because of the PoE. To me this is a very minor issue.
Summary: I have 4 of these switches and 4 of their 48 port siblings in my network. Half of them are used for our PCS/Devices and the other half are used for our Fonality Phone system. They work flawlessly.
Summary: Great product, works exactly as advertised. I have this switch stacked to a Netgear 48 port non-POE switch. Management interface updates automatically and adds the "POE" tab to the menu. Switch has 4 high powered POE ports, the other 20 are normal standard power output.
