Summary: Ive used 3 of these and ordered 2 more for IP camera installs. 4 of them are in outdoor NEMA housings running wireless bridge links and powering 2 Vivotek IP7361 2 megapixel cameras. They work fantastic and the small size is perfect to allow all the other components to fit. Another is powering a single camera. Havent had any issues with them at all. Will definitely order more of them.
Pros: This PoE switch has been perfect for my needs. I built a camera system that6 needed PoE and I shopped for some time for somethuing reliable and sturdy because of the environment I installed this in and am very happy. This switch is installed in my garage in Texas where the temperatures often get over 110-120 degrees in the garage. I am using 3 of the 4 powered ports to run 3 security cameras in my house and all has been performing perfectly.
Summary: With our office completely on IP phones (40 employees) and no PoE infrastructure, these switches have helped greatly. Most users have power adapter for phones, but some closer workstations have benefitted by having access to the PoE ports. Great product...
Summary: This is really great for my four access points I use in my seventeen and a half sqft mansion. The PoE makes it worthwhile. Very good buy for fifty four dollars I don't know why the price went up so much. Very nice and solid construction. Very reliable, I have had it for two weeks and it is still working.
Summary: The document doesn't say how this work, so I expected it works in a basic flat network. It worked with standard PoE (like 7945), but not pre-standard Cisco phones (like 7940). I plugged this switch into a trunk port (native 1 data, 100 voice). Plugged phone (Cisco 7945)into port 1. Phone came up, in vlan 100. Plugped PC into port 7. PC came up. Moved PC to behind IP phone. PC came up. Plugged another phone into port 3. Second phone came up. It worked.
