Final Thoughts

 

In general the GS110TP performs very well and does almost everything that you would want it to do with the exception of the PoE scheduling. We found that most of the options would really not have a place in the home network (at least not yet), but in the near future as more devices are introduced that support the more advanced features (like Link Layer Discovery) these functions will be right at home in your house.

 

The PoE performance was only marred by the scheduling issues we ran into. Other than that it handled everything we threw at it and did not slow down. We were very impressed to see the level of security that the ProSafe GS110TP has. This is something that you usually have to pay quite a bit more to get. We really cannot say this enough; the GS110TP is simply loaded with options to adjust, tweak and control the network traffic in addition to its primary role of providing power to other devices. It was impressive and a little overwhelming to test this product and try to cover everything it can do.

 

If you are looking for a good PoE switch (or even just a good switch) for your office (home or other), then we have to say this is one that you should seriously look at. With a price tag of only $274.99 at NewEgg.com and more options than its size would indicate, it is a bargain!
