Another great device from TrendNet

  • Summary: Upgraded from the 4 port to 8 port. So far it is powering 3 cameras using trendnet poe adapters at the camera, one outside camera, and one access point. No issues at all. I plan on adding 2 more poe devices and have no doubt this will be up for the challenge. The power brick is big, but that means a nice, small, compact, switch.

After 11 months of use, great switch, no complaints!

  • Summary: Great switch. Been working for almost a year now (24/7 operation) and has operating without a hitched. Using the PoE ports to power a UniFi AP Pro. No problems, power delivery is great, even over several meters. Sturdy, and I love the metal feel of the box. Switches do tend to get a little warm, and the ones that have a metal/aluminum (I have no idea what it is made out of) frame keeps it cooler than if it were plastic. Really not much else to say about this switch.

true PoE, great performance

  • Summary: I'm going to buy another one as a spare, just in case.
  • Pros: This switch has been powering my PoE-enabled AP for 3 months, and it's been rock-solid stable. The metal chassis is sturdy, and you can see at a glance what the status of all the ports is (PoE, link, 1000M). The included A/C adapter uses a separate transformer, so there's no wall wort to block outlets. This is a true PoE-compliant switch, in that it negotiates with the connected devices whether they need PoE—No PoE injectors are needed. (Cheaper "PoE compatible" switc...
  • Cons: The switch maxes out at 60W combined across all 4 PoE ports. So you can have at most 2 PoE+ (30W) devices. I don't know what happens if you try to plug more than two PoE+ devices into it—my guess would be that when you plug in the 3rd device, the switch drops all 4 PoE ports to 15W max.

  • Excerpt: #1 Small#2 Quite#3 Gives plenty of power over ethernet cable. (2x 30 watts) and (2x 15 watts) it has a smart switch that gives sufficient power per device. I tried to power my PTZ camera with other small power block (from china) that said it's up to 25 watts, and on 10 feet Cat 5 cable I was able to power PTZ camera but on long 100 feet cable POE adapter from china wasn't able to give sufficient power.
  • Pros: Easily Expanded, Easy To Set Up, Fast, Small
  • Cons: Energy Inefficient
