4 out of 5 eggsWorks To a Point

Pros: HPOE - 30 watts is much more useful for devices such as security cameras and other higher draw devices.
Transformer has Mount stubs for posts/walls etc.

Cons: Large transformer - unnecessarily large transformer.
Not switchable from 5/12/24/48 v.

Other Thoughts: This unit did its job however. THe specification for HPOE is still slightly debated. The documentation doesn't give clear detail about the wire resistance or technical info about what cables are necessary to carry the voltage... in my implementation, I wanted the Cat5 to be 50m... the HPOE worked in the test environment when the cable length was 3meters. When the extra distance was added the PTZ Camera wouldn't work. Ultimately I had to run a power cable to the camera location. In this case, my PTZ camera was drawing 33watts, 10% over the 802.3at spec (which is technically 29.3 watts at 100m). Also - the splitters at the other end... be careful not to attempt using generic 802.3af (standard POE) or they will get very hot over time and likely die an early life. Use high quality cabling. The new cisco HPOE Ultimate (60watts) is very interesting technology to be watching at this time tho extremely expensive.
