1 out of 5 eggsshort lifespan

This review is from: TP-LINK TL-SF1008P 10/100Mbps 8-Port PoE Switch, 4 PoE Ports, Metal case

Pros: nice power supply and rigid construction

Cons: unreliable for me

Other Thoughts: I used this switch to network 4 hikvision IP cameras, it lasted 13 days. POE is still working but no network connectivity. port lights flash on power up but not when Ethernet connections are made. For what it cost it's not worth the investment in time to deal with customer service. live and learn.

4 out of 5 eggsRock solid switch

This review is from: TP-LINK TL-SF1008P 10/100Mbps 8-Port PoE Switch, 4 PoE Ports, Metal case

Pros: The switch comes with an array of features that a consumer would expect: auto negotiation, flow control, full 100 Mbps duplex bandwidth, and 4 PoE ports with power monitoring at the 802.af standard.

It's intended to be a desktop switch, so no hardware is provided for mounting aside from rubber foot pads. But as desktop switches go, this is a great item -- the fanless all metal design means it is heavy enough to stay in place and run quiet.

The device was capable of running 4 max 5W cameras without issue. The throughput was sufficient there were no transmission issues with HD cameras. All in all, I'm rather impressed with this product. It does what it should, and does it well.

Cons: It's only 100Mbps and not 1000Mbps -- which seems like a pretty common and simple feature these days. However, for most business applications, it isn't likely to be needed -- thus, this is no real loss. Still, we like options for as much throughput as possible -- especially where hi-def camera feeds are concerned.

Other Thoughts: This configuration was run continuously for 3 months and there were no issues with the switch during this period.

4 out of 5 eggsGets the job done

This review is from: TP-LINK TL-SF1008P 10/100Mbps 8-Port PoE Switch, 4 PoE Ports, Metal case

Pros: I work in a contract call center, we use a lot of PoE IP phones which has given me a lot of opportunity to test this switch.

Currently it sits on my desk at work, powering my phone and providing network connectivity to a number of test servers I run. I also use it to test the IP phones we use which has been a huge plus. There have been no power issues and no drops on connectivity over the last several months of testing.

The all metal design is appreciated and having PoE readily available in a small package on my desk beats having to pull out an injector or hookup a noisy 24 port switch.

Cons: My only con is that this only runs fast ethernet. Would have been nice to have gigabit connectivity.

Other Thoughts: If you want a stable PoE switch for your office, this would be the one to get.

2 out of 5 eggsGood Switch but POE is misleading

This review is from: TP-LINK TL-SF1008P 10/100Mbps 8-Port PoE Switch, 4 PoE Ports, Metal case

Pros: Switch has a quality feel, as the chasis is metal and doesnt feel flimsy. Also provides a clear display on the front for active ports.

Cons: The main reason I bought this was to add more POE ports to an office with 1 port. I use Cisco IP Phones in my office which draw 15.4 v per device, yet this switch would not power them. Each port is supposed to provide 15.4 v with a max draw of 57 v total. This switch would not power one phone without any other devices connected. This is the main reason I'm leaving a 2 star review. If you are in need of a regular switch or have very low drawing POE equipment, this should work fine.

This review is from: TP-LINK TL-SF1008P 10/100Mbps 8-Port PoE Switch, 4 PoE Ports, Metal case

Pros: First unit worked fine only running one POE AP until it failed after a few months, I called and support replaced the unit with no trouble.

Cons: First unit failed

5 out of 5 eggsTP-LINK TL-SF1008P 10/100Mbps 8-Port PoE Switch, 4 PoE Ports, Metal case

This review is from: TP-LINK TL-SF1008P 10/100Mbps 8-Port PoE Switch, 4 PoE Ports, Metal case

Pros: The TP-LINK TL-SF1008P is an 8-port 10/100Mbps switch with 4 PoE ports and 4 normal ports. The hardware part of this switch is the unique part to notice compared to normal lightweight plastic cased switches. The case is a sturdy metal, grey in color. It has ventilation holes on the side for additional cooling. It supports up to 15.4 W for each PoE port, but is limited to 53 W total, so one could not max out each port. The sizeable external brick style DC power adapter has a thick high-current style wall plug and it outputs 48V at 1.25 A. This inspires some confidence that it could deliver enough power that is near an old style incandescent light bulb. This is enough to power some, but not all PoE devices like wireless access points, switch, cameras, and/or phones.

It complies with typical IEE802.x standards, duplex, and has a 1K entry MAC address table. LED indicators on the front panel inform about the status of the connections and also one for POE max. The latter I was unable to test, but if it is red it is above 46W and flashing red it is above 53W. There is some overload power protection and port priority built in.

In use, transfer rates were up to 11.1 MB/s, which is reasonably close to the maximum (100 Mbps, 12.5 MB/s). These transfer rates are nowhere near a gigabit switch, but that is not the purpose of this good pricepoint PoE switch, which is more suited to IP cameras, IP phones, etc. where maximum transfer speed is not required. It has been highly reliable in my usage so far over a couple weeks.

Cons: The limit of 15 W is below that required for some wireless access points of other companies, which specify +16 W. Be sure to check the requirement for your particular PoE device.

There are no built in mounting holes, just rubber feet, therefore wall mounting is a bit more of challenge.

Other Thoughts: Others switches should use this style of metal case, but include mounting holes.

1 out of 5 eggsHorrible RMA Support

This review is from: TP-LINK TL-SF1008P 10/100Mbps 8-Port PoE Switch, 4 PoE Ports, Metal case

Pros: Works sometimes

Cons: I have 2 poe Hikvision cameras which are powered with this tp-link switch. They go to my Synology. One of the cameras goes out every week. After troubleshooting w/ Synology tech support, we determined that the tp-link switch is faulty. I sent an RMA request with tp-link, and someone named "Daisy D0ng" has been giving me the runaround with a multitude of emails with ridiculous questions, stalling my RMA request. Support from tp-link has been horrible. Stay away!

1 out of 5 eggsFRIED my other PoE switches

This review is from: TP-LINK TL-SF1008P 10/100Mbps 8-Port PoE Switch, 4 PoE Ports, Metal case

Pros: Looked like a good solution for providing more PoE ports on my small office network.

Cons: Fried half my network equipment when I daisy chained it off of my main PoE switch. You know, hooking switches up to other switches like you normally do? yeah, this thing FRIED the other switches, and PoE, and an expensive network appliance when we plugged it in. TOTAL NIGHTMARE!!!!! RUINED THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS WORTH OF EQUIPMENT!!!!

Other Thoughts: Buyer beware, this thing cause a nightmare for my remote office. Never buying TP-Link EVER AGAIN. just one failure of this magnitude is enough to keep me the hell away.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat for home surveillance networking!

This review is from: TP-LINK TL-SF1008P 10/100Mbps 8-Port PoE Switch, 4 PoE Ports, Metal case

Pros: Upon receiving this package, the very first thing I noticed was the weight. When it comes to electronic devices, the heavier it is actually relates to a better, more durable product that is built to last.

I was able to setup this unit in my attic above the garage, with 3 PoE cameras connected with about 25 ft of cabling each. I have cameras mounted in the front and rear of the house, 2 are Foscam, 1 is Linksys. All 3 cameras were simple plug and play installation through this switch, and were easily accessible on the network.

2 of the feeds are HD (720p) and one is 640x480, all 3 of which came in without any artifacts or loss of detail, so the 100BaseT is plenty for at least 3 feeds of varying quality/HD. The added benefit of 8 total ports allowed me to also run some network cables through interior walls to add new network drops. With a PC and an Xbox 360 also sharing the switch, it performed very well with only minor signal loss.

Cons: As stated above, after loading several devices (a total of 5 devices) using heavy constant traffic, the device did start to stutter in camera feed. My overall home network is a gigabit network, so I only saw decreased performance on this switch because of the 100Mbps limit. Streaming video to the PC and Xbox while running 3 live feed cameras was just a little to much for it to handle, but my intentions were never to use this switch for actual internet streaming so it is still a valiant performer.

Other Thoughts: For just $40 with 4 POE ports with a total of 150W power, this is quite the bargain and is a very solid product. I've come to notice that TP-Link is an excellent choice for networking products and this device continues that trend.

5 out of 5 eggsMade to Last

This review is from: TP-LINK TL-SF1008P 10/100Mbps 8-Port PoE Switch, 4 PoE Ports, Metal case

Pros: built like a tank. very heavy and solid. 150w max power draw.
high quality components on the inside. all the capacitors are long life capacitors, Taicon brand, (owned by Nichicon) rated to 105. degrees celsius, compared to the 75c degree parts found in lower quality electronics. this should last a very long time.
I repair electronics, and i can tell that this is well made, even though it was made in china, this one was done right, lead free solder, rounded stainless steel metal edges, high temperature components, use of screws rather than plastic tabs. this device is meant to last.
use of POE ports! POE stands for power over ethernet, many devices such as cameras, telephones and wireless access devices can use power through the ethernet cable and don't have to rely on a separate power adapter. this is really useful in a small business where you may have have offices and cameras. so instead of having a outlet and battery backup device at every single camera or phone, you can have one at the router. so if the router stays powered on during a power failure, your cameras and telephones do too.

Cons: i wouldn't recommend it for home networking because, it's 100Mbit/s. and by todays standards its a slow performer. it's not ideal to be used where you might be copying large files or streaming HD movies.
i don't think this would be practical for a large business because it only has 4 POE ports, i imagine that a large business which required POE ports would need more than 4 of them, and might require more than the maximum 57 watts, i would assume that any businesses which is considered large would require more than 8 ethernet ports to begin with.
most switches and routers have holes on the bottom which allow it to be mounted on the walls with screws or thumb tacks. this one does not. it does include 4 rubber feet that stick on the bottom. but they are not pre installed.

Other Thoughts: the ideal consumer of this product would be a small business owner. the device is well made and easy to use and will last a long time. i could see the perfect application for this switch, the first 4 POE ports could be used for cameras, maybe a camera or two inside the store, and two outside, port 5 could be for a printer, or telephone, port6 could be for a DVR, NAS, or backup drive which records the surveillance cameras. port 7 could be for the internet connection, and port 8 could be for the workstation computer. if you add a UPS box your switch, cameras, telephone, DVR and computer can all stay working even in case of a power failure.
it would be nice if the switch was gigabit, or if all 8 ports were POE. but the features reflect the price, and for the price, its hard to complain.
