Seems like a good price. Might have to grab one of these even though I don’t strictly NEED one yet
Good switches
Please can someone explain to non expert like me why this is hot when you can get the metal netgear ones for £20. Thanks.

Is the Netgear Poe?

Is the Netgear Poe?


I am no expert so I don't know what the acronym PoE is. But I just plugged everything in and it worked. I think it was called an unmanaged switch.
EDIT: Power over Internet. I see. For cameras and stuff. Cool.

Don’t worry, I was about to ask that too but I guessed it might have PoE for that price. It’s great if you have stuff that supports PoE but unfortunately I don’t so I just use basic switches. For what this is, it’s a good price. I suspect most people won’t need the PoE functionality but those that do will take advantage of this price.
Will the POE work with Ubiquiti access points? I may be wrong, but Ubiquiti use some special adapaters.

I remember paying about £35 for mines. Seems to have gone up in price.

Unfortunately my Ubiquiti isn't PoE standard. It requires more power. Look for 802.3af PoE compliant in your Ubiquiti technical spec.
Ubiquiti seem to use PoE injectors rated at 12w or 24w depending on the model and some come with them already.

This switch outputs 15.4w max per port so depends on your model version of the Ubiquiti. If it's 24w then you would need a PoE+ switch capable of outputting 30w per port to power it or a separate PoE injector.

This switch has 8 Ports PoE+ amazon.co.uk/dp/…49G but is twice the price.

Sorry but It's Power Over Ethernet Basically your network switch supplies low voltage power to the device over the Ethernet cable, which means you don't need a separate power supply next to the device you are installing.Saves a lot of time and hassle when fitting CCTV etc as you only need to run one cable and not worry about having power nearby.

It is a great innovation, just need the price of equipment to start dropping. PoE outputs about 15w per port and PoE+ about 30w per port.
I love how '(No Configuration Required)' is put in the title as if it's a selling point. I think the people who are in the market for a switch like this know what 'unmanaged' means and would probably describe it as "configuration not possible".
