This review is from: TP-LINK TL-SF1008P 10/100Mbps 8-Port PoE Switch, 4 PoE Ports, Metal case
Pros: I've tested many brands of switches and routers lately and this PoE from TP-Link is a nice device for what it's meant for. Again TP-Link did not disappoint.
The construction is stiff steel and looks as though it will last a long time.
Comes with a fairly large 48v power supply with a removable 3 pronged wall cord.
Indicator lights are functional but not obnoxiously bright.
PoE camera plugged right in with no problems or configuring.
Cons: Would like to see gigabit ports but the devices I've got plugged into it don't use that high of bandwidth anyways. That's the only reason for 4 Eggs.
No wall mounting holes for hiding the device, but again I've got my work-around for that also. Industrial strength Velcro is how I've been mounting a lot of my devices lately.
Other Thoughts: Without the higher ports I've decided not to utilize this switch on my main network. This could be looked at as a good or bad thing. Personally I like to have the PoE devices on their own separate network anyways.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Nothing to really speak of unless I had a machine it worked on.
Comes with an older version of Pinnacle Studio that works with Win 7.0 but you cannot upgrade it without paying more for the product than you bought the device for.
Cons: Product fails on capture every time.
Very disappointed with this device. Wanted to capture old VHS and CVHS to digital. No luck.
Cheap plastic made in China.
Other Thoughts: Been a long time since I got a lemon like this.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: D-Link GO-SW-8GE Unmanaged 10/100/1000Mbps 8-Port Gigabit Metal Desktop Switch
Pros: Sturdy metal construction
8 ports all with auto sensing
No software fuss
Easy to see port lights (not annoyingly bright)
Mounts on wall or comes with optional rubber feet.
-I like to mount all of my electronics so they are hidden and out of the way but easily accessible. This device is no exception. I've replace a router that I was bridging with absolutely no issues and no setup fuss.
I now have TV, BluRay (netflix, and youtube), Wii U, and Dish Network hooked up with no problems. Many open ports for what comes next (new receiver).
Other Thoughts: Other have mentioned having the power plug on the side to be a con but I like it on the side because of the way I mounted the device, I don't have to worry about it getting pulled out accidentally.READ FULL REVIEW
