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.

Summary: Wide range of supported PoE & PoE+ devices. The size is just right. Noise levels are tolerable . The only thing that I personally would have liked to get in the package is wall mounts along side the rack mounts.
My Xen host and FreeNAS box are both set to do jumbo frames and this little switch has been doing just fine with that

Summary: It has no management interface, so it won't do VLANs or anything fancy, but negotiates link speed and MTU properly as long as you put two things that want to do a specific MTU on both ends. My Xen host and FreeNAS box are both set to do jumbo frames and this little switch has been doing just fine with that.
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.
So far so good. Only have it running less than a month ...

Summary: So far so good. Only have it running less than a month so I don't know about reliability, but all ports work initially. I'm only using 2 of the POE+ ports for now (both with IP cameras and approximately 50' cables), but it has no problem supplying enough power for the cameras' IR LEDs. I'm using all four non-powered ports in addition to the 2 powered ports. Would be nice if it had keyhole mounting slots on the bottom for wall mounting. I just rigged up some brackets.
Summary: Skip this switch. Had three go bad in a two week period. Attempted to run four Pelco cameras (1x D5230, 1x IME-219, 1x IBP319, 1x IXE31), and my only concern was that the D5230 which is a 1080p 30x PTZ dome was going to run it hard... First switch worked fine for a week, now all the POE lights are stuck on even with no eth ports occupied, Trendnet support has no idea why. According to tester, it's putting out power regardless of poe sense.
(2x 30 watts) and (2x 15 watts) it has a smart switch that gives sufficient power per device

Summary: #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.
