Very different to the £15 one because of the PoE. Super useful if you need to power security cameras etc.
Have some heat. I think the POE and model of this item are being overlooked.
Price is good for PoE.
When I posted this the other week at £49.99 it got voted cold.

It is a great price.
It beggars belief that people routinely "down-vote" deals whilst not having a clue about, or interest in, the specific item. The trouble with an item like this is that since "everyone" has a PC at home they're all seasoned professionals (know-it-alls) and clearly know everything there is to know about I.T. The reality of course is a very different situation.
Hot from me, great price for a POE GIG switch
Thanks - was looking for a second hand POE gig switch and couldnt find anything worth having under £50 on ebay so this is very nice. have some heat.
Great price for a Gigabit switch with PoE. Who voted cold has no clue about PoE.

Its a good deal for PoE but how does PoE justify the additional £33+? It just seems a lot extra to pay for a component that feeds power.

If you are running IP cameras then you need power from somewhere to power the cameras. I guess you can run separate power bricks but the chances are you won't have a socket nearby. The ethernet cable has to be run to the switch anyway so I'd say £33 is well spent being able to power 4 cameras with a single cable.

I have 3 IP cameras running this way.

I know what you are saying but I dont see why it should cost 3x the price to add PoE to a switch. I am looking at setting up some cameras with my server which can upload to cloud. What's your setup?

I'm not sure, I looked at alternative ways of doing it and all were pricey. I actually bought this POE switch for my mum, I use an 8 port POE injector which cost more than this but I also have a 24 port non POE switch powering everything.

As for my setup, I have an upgraded HP Gen8 microserver, xpenology and 3x POE cameras.

What software do you use on the server?
