Summary: I have been trying to get this switch replaced under warranty for more than 6 weeks. I've included all documentation and answered the same questions repeatedly. No RMA, no warranty service. No answer on the "TP Link Hotline" either.
Pros: Worked great for several months
Cons: Started dropping all connections, the power light remains on. A power cycle will get it going for a while. Warranty is a run around that gets you nothing but frustrated.
TP Link early failure of POE Switch, poor service.
6 May 2015
Summary: POE Power section failed with light use after 6 months. POE Max light is on blinking with no devices attached. TP Link customer service is also one star. First they asked for a video of the device malfunctioning which I provided a link to.
Summary: Thanks. I'll watch this space to see if TP-Link wants to be a quality outfit and do the right thing.
Pros: A 9V wall wart, free!
Cons: I have never written a bomb review before. Sorry, TP-Link. I purchased this in 7.2014, to upgrade with more modern technology my old faithful no-brand 8-port switch. Which always worked fine.

Jumbo frames and dynamic link aggregation do not work
10 January 2015
Summary: This switch is housed in a heavy-duty metal case with detachable rack brackets. Brackets can be rotated to attach at the front, top or bottom. Power connector is at the back and all lights and Ethernet jacks are in the front.
Summary: Bad design. It's almost unbelievable. The network wires plug into the front where they block the lights. They even plug in upside down when compared to every other device I've ever owned. The lights need to be in the front where I can see whats going on.
Summary: This switch was well-reviewed and that's why I purchased it. It functioned without problems for about 2 weeks, when all of a sudden it caused some weird networking problems including causing clients to my router to no longer be able ping hosts on the internet.
Summary: I have 2 of these switches one purchsed in 2010 and the other bought in March this year, the first works fine streaming traffic to my first music streamer, the second on the other end of a powerline bridge to a second streamer doesn't.
