Summary: So am helping a friend put in a security camera system in his shop and we have 4 outside cameras. Instead of getting a $300 electrician to run power to them, I decided to run the cameras via PoE.
Summary: Got this for a new install of 4 POE IP Cams, it is working as expected. Was factory sealed, all parts where as indicated, and in the box. I got 2x TP-LINK TL-POE200 Power over Ethernet Adapter Kit, 1 Injector, 1 Splitter, up to 100 meters (325 Feet), 12/9/5V power output in addition for some older...
Summary: Not terribly impressed with this POE switch. No wall mount slots on the back/bottom, so it has to live on a shelf, making it difficult to conceal and keep cool. So the ugly case and nine wires extending from the back (8 Ethernet & 1 power cord) makes for a hideous eyesore.
Summary: For the cost this switch gets it done. I have purchased three of these so far and have had no issues. I am using the PoE ports to power IP security cameras. The power adapter is on the larger side, but accepts a standard computer power cord so you do not have a large brick to try and fit in your...
Summary: I didn't want to spend a lot of money right now on a POE switch until I got a better feel for how things like voip phones and IP cameras would function on a POE switch. I read some of the reviews here so took a chance on this one given I had never heard of the manufacture before.
Summary: I used to apply the "no one gets fired for buying IBM" rule to networking gear. Afterall, a switch, router, etc. is something you want to buy, stick in a rack and not have to worry about it failing. To that end I would select top brands relying on their strong history of reliability.
Summary: I got the TP-link switch as an add on switch for a secondary location that we needed to have switching and POE capabilities for a security camera system setup that is covering multiple locations.
