Good quality, robust and simple - plug in all your network devices and connect to a router and away you go – no stuffing about, just works.
I like the robust steel chassis/case and the large power supply. Often with these types of devices, the included power supply is absolute rubbish and fails within the first couple of years. However, judging by the size of this power supply, I’m expecting years of trouble-free service.
I bought this switch to power my POE (Power Over Ethernet) security cameras and to allow connecting multiple cameras to the last available network port in my router. Thus far I have 2x security cameras connected (Amcrest IP8M-T2499EW and IP2M-841EB) with both cameras working well and more cameras on the way.
Amcrest offer a similar switch for a similar price, however the speed is only 10/100Mbps. This switch is 10/100/1000Mbps, which should ensue longevity for future upgrades. Just a note - if you’re going to all the trouble to run network cables through your roof and down walls, make sure to use Cat 6 or better for future upgrades. My cameras only have a 100Mbps network interface, however the next generation will likely have a 1000Mbps – so I’ll be right to re-use my current network infrastructure.
