Great little switch, bought for the PoE feature to power some PoE devices and because it was a managed switch.
It lacks two features that more expensive switches have
a) the management of the switch is via a Windows application and not via a web page on the switch itself
b) there is no option to enable/disable PoE on a port by port basis (so it is not possible to remotely power cycle an attached PoE device)
However for the price paid it is great. Works straight out of the box if you don't care about the management features and has no fan so is silent in operation.
Power supply is external to the switch and easy to tuck away out of sight.

A solid and well made cable.
In my case I had no need for Foil Twisted Pair and extra screening (just a normal office environment) but bought this higher spec shielded cable should I need a high spec cable in the future.

But now there is no life from the Pebble.
Noticed that the PSU… Read more
