Warranty issue - update

Ronald N., Newegg
3 December 2014
  • 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: premature failure

Warranty issue.

Ronald N., Newegg
26 November 2014
  • Pros: when it works, it works
  • 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.

Teleworker Rockstar

Ryan S., Newegg
26 September 2014
  • 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
  • Cons: None to date

BRings down the entire LAN

Charles D., Newegg
25 September 2014
  • Summary: Since this is unmanaged, I cannot troubleshoot why it's bringing down the network. Cisco reports too many errors coming from this device.
  • Pros: Seems like a nice unit.
  • Cons: 3 minutes after plugging it in, the gig-e cisco router put that entire segment in error mode, have to reset the port with this device disconnected.

Underpowered

tmannino, Amazon
9 September 2014
  • 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.

just ok

Nathan S., Newegg
27 March 2014
  • Summary: I purchase two units, both have this same limitation. This is costing me more money to have to buy injectors and other PoE switches.
  • Pros: Seems to pass data ok.
  • Cons: can't run more than 2 PoE devices even though it has 4 PoE ports. It doesn't have enough power.

Very good for the price, no competitors

Vatchman, Amazon
19 March 2014
  • Summary: When looking for an inexpensive POE switch this one fill the bill nicely. Only gripe is it first listed as an 8 port and then finer print will reveal it 4 POE and 4 non POE ports

Good overall switch but limited PoE power for multiple cameras

Mike B., Amazon
27 February 2014
  • Summary: After researching many different PoE switches to power a group of Foscam cameras and other PoE devices on our home network, I finally went with the TRENDnet TPE-S44. I bought two of the switches, one for the home office area and one for the wiring closet where we have the panel feeding to the...
