Pros: This is an update to my previous review. I still say when it works it works well and it worked well for two and a half years before it failed. Trendnet initially did not want to honor the 3 year warranty but has since issued an RMA so the unit is being repaired/replaced.
Cons: Trendnet does not want to honor warranty The unit was installed into a production environment in April of 2012 and had been working flawlessly for 2+ year driving three Trendnet POE Access points.

Summary: I purchased this switch to replace my PoE injectors for my IP telephones. I am now using this switch to power my Mitel 5340 and 5360 IP phones. The Mitel phones with backlit displays have no issues with the power provided. I am also powering a Xirrus XR-620 AP without any issues.
Pros: Quick and easy to setup, extremely quiet and gives off very little heat, colored faceplate to highlight the PoE ports, PoE load indicator to confirm available power for additional devices
Summary: Specs say 30 watts of PoE power, but that's not accurate from my experience. I tried using one to power two Aruba IAP-135 access points and it tripped the "Max PoE" warning and although both APs appeared to power up only one would boot successfully.
