Summary: The unit is another classic good buy from TP-Link, but ONLY if you really need PoE. I haven't seen any other PoE switches with such excellent specs and reliability in this price range, it's quite impressive.
Pros: +excellent brand, never had any trouble with TP-Link networking products
Cons: -not a typical industry standard that usual has both LEDs and ports in front, only a power plug in the rear, but oh well, it's not rack mountable anyways, so this is mostly forgiven ;)
Summary: I bought this strictly because of the past reviews. TP-Link was not on my list of companies noted for network equipment. I've been a Cisco dork since they bought 3Com. I am pleasantly surprised.
Pros: Works like a charm. I needed to add some connectivity in my wiring closet and this fit the bill. It's built like a tank but it stays cool. Works great.
Cons: Wish it was managed, but for this price I don't actually care! Now I wish I had bought more than one at that great price....
Pros: + Extremely affordable rackmount gigabit solution for SOHO applications. Competitor models that are capable of being rack-mounted are typically more than 50% more pricey than what Newegg offers at the time of this review.
Cons: - No jumbo frame support. Most people do not need this feature, though, so it is rather a moot point for most networks.
