I installed this switch to run TWO 5MP Security cameras. It worked okay for a while but after about a month I started to experience smearing and dropping video frames.
The 5 other cameras on my core switch were all running fine. I eventually replaced this switch with an 8 port Dlink which is not experiencing the same issues in spite of me adding an additional 2 cameras.
I even tried this switch on some lower end 2MP cameras but will have to pull them and run direct feeds as they are also experiencing video smearing/dropped frames.
Overall I am very disappointed in this switch. Its caused me to lose critical footage and if it was not past the return window I would have already sent it back for a refund.
I bought this to power my two RING stick up cameras through POE. Works flawlessly, and didn’t have to spend $30 bucks (the RING POE adapter) per adapter. So this is cheaper and supports more cameras than just one. Recommend 👍👍.
So far, it works great. Its a well made metal case, 4-port POE switch with an up link. What I like most is the power supply. Its not dinky like some of the cheap ones. You get a good size brick with some weight to it. For what I use it for, its perfect. Currently running two (2) 2MP cameras with out a hitch. The reason I bought this was one of my cameras would hang every other day when switching to night mode. I was hoping it was the cheap power supply which was the individual plug in type. Sure enough this thing fixed my problems.
I purchased this to use as a demo/instructional unit for IP cameras. 3 big positives - Compact, works well, priced right. I like that the networking port is on the rear as opposed to being next to the POE ports. Less chance of confusion/error. Sturdy metal case with rubber feet. I would recommend. UPDATE 2020: While I like the unit, I went to purchase another one and noticed the price increased 33% since the last time I bought it ($32 to $44). I also noticed a name-brand competitor offering a 5 port POE switch with Gigabit speeds for only a few dollars more. Sorry, but guess which one I picked....
Used for two 2k POE IP Cams. Both connected to a port, then POE switch routed to a wireless router that is bridged wirelessly to another router 300ft away...that is connected to my NVR. No apparent t signal degredation.
