Agree. It's not a Super Hot deal but a pretty good one for a 5-port PoE switch

I know this doesnt have any management functions but would it support passing through VLAN tags? ie if using it with ubiquiti APs?

For those who don't know the Power Over Ethernet ("PoE") is the special feature here. Like the name suggests it provides power (and data) over ethernet cables to devices that require PoE, like many security cameras and a multitude of other devices.

Thanks OP, parents were looking for one to power their tp link AP's.

One of the reviews mentioned it doesn't support ubiquity ap's not sure if 100% true.

Any first hand experience with the power limitations on this particular unit? Is 4 ports at a max of 55W (vice the other unit that's 85W) going to limit it if a person wanted to use it for 2 or 3 APs in an attic?

APs don’t use that much power. Even the 55W is overkill. If you’re looking at the ubiquity line up. They all use 10W or less unless using pass through or the EDU AP specifically. That one uses 20W because of the PA ability.

I wish UBNT would get cheaper ones. They have a new one but I think it's still closer to 100 and not out of early?

I think the netgear one is az for the https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Energy-Efficient_Ethernet feature. I can be wrong and I never tested them side by side but the az model suppose to help reduce power. I found the af models to kind of waste power for fun sadly... Not sure thought I have limited experience but some of them just plugging them in and not using any plugs at all can heat up stupidly. I should run some consumption tests.

Depends on the AP stuff too ;) I got some UBNT stuff that would burn that alive then again their not the passive PoE haha. But yeah most consumer grade and even decent office grade stuff would not need anything too powerful. That being said these are meant for future usage like the smarter smarter power eating VoIP Phones, Even TV's though might not be enough here, etc.

But yeah should be fine for 99% of the AP users but keep in mind these are Passive I think the term is most of UBNT stuff has been the 24v their now finally moving away with that and going PoE+ and such.
