Good & Reliable POE

Jeffrey M., Newegg
8 October 2015
  • Pros: All 8-10 of these i have bought are all still working fine after years of use. Ive never had a camera not be able to get the volts it needs even at 300+ foot cable runs.

short lifespan

Duncan J., Newegg
25 July 2015
  • Summary: I used this switch to network 4 hikvision IP cameras, it lasted 13 days. POE is still working but no network connectivity. port lights flash on power up but not when Ethernet connections are made. For what it cost it's not worth the investment in time to deal with customer service. live and learn.
  • Pros: nice power supply and rigid construction
  • Cons: unreliable for me

Rock solid switch

Michael P., Newegg
4 July 2015
  • Summary: This configuration was run continuously for 3 months and there were no issues with the switch during this period.
  • Pros: The switch comes with an array of features that a consumer would expect: auto negotiation, flow control, full 100 Mbps duplex bandwidth, and 4 PoE ports with power monitoring at the 802.af standard. It's intended to be a desktop switch, so no hardware is provided for mounting aside from rubber fo...
  • Cons: It's only 100Mbps and not 1000Mbps -- which seems like a pretty common and simple feature these days. However, for most business applications, it isn't likely to be needed -- thus, this is no real loss. Still, we like options for as much throughput as possible -- especially where hi-def camera fe...

Gets the job done

Michael M., Newegg
20 June 2015
  • Summary: If you want a stable PoE switch for your office, this would be the one to get.
  • Pros: I work in a contract call center, we use a lot of PoE IP phones which has given me a lot of opportunity to test this switch. Currently it sits on my desk at work, powering my phone and providing network connectivity to a number of test servers I run. I also use it to test the IP phones we use whi...
  • Cons: My only con is that this only runs fast ethernet. Would have been nice to have gigabit connectivity.

Good Switch but POE is misleading

Michael S., Newegg
27 May 2015
  • Pros: Switch has a quality feel, as the chasis is metal and doesnt feel flimsy. Also provides a clear display on the front for active ports.
  • Cons: The main reason I bought this was to add more POE ports to an office with 1 port. I use Cisco IP Phones in my office which draw 15.4 v per device, yet this switch would not power them. Each port is supposed to provide 15.4 v with a max draw of 57 v total. This switch would not power one phone wit...

TP-LINK TL-SF1008P 10/100Mbps 8-Port PoE Switch, 4 PoE Ports, Metal case

Michael L., Newegg
19 April 2015
  • Summary: Others switches should use this style of metal case, but include mounting holes.
  • Pros: The TP-LINK TL-SF1008P is an 8-port 10/100Mbps switch with 4 PoE ports and 4 normal ports. The hardware part of this switch is the unique part to notice compared to normal lightweight plastic cased switches. The case is a sturdy metal, grey in color. It has ventilation holes on the side for addit...
  • Cons: The limit of 15 W is below that required for some wireless access points of other companies, which specify +16 W. Be sure to check the requirement for your particular PoE device. There are no built in mounting holes, just rubber feet, therefore wall mounting is a bit more of challenge.

Horrible RMA Support

James P., Newegg
7 March 2015
  • Pros: Works sometimes

After troubleshooting w/ Synology tech support, we determined that the tp-link switch is faulty. I sent an RMA request with tp-link, and someone named "Daisy ...
