This would be an awesome addition to my Ubiquiti Unifi setup but I really want to hold out for the 16 port variant. Edit: Code does work with the 16 port. $30 off!

Crazy easy to use interface and the cleanest snapshot of your network from end to end with their other products Unifi USG and UAP-AC-PRO.

Aren't all 8 port switches the same, especially from the same manufacturer?

Why would someone pick one of these over the other, aside from price?

They are all 8-port switches, however, there are variances that could swayed your purchase decision:

The basic US-8:
- Can be powered solely by another PoE switch which is great if you have your main PoE switch protected by an UPS as this would keep network uptime even for remote switches...meaning it does not require a power adapter/outlet to use as long as there is a PoE switch providing power to it.
- Has a single PoE pass-thru port to handle low-power devices as well as maintaining power for itself

The 60W version:
- Has full PoE+ capabilities on 4 of the 8 ports to power 802.3af compatible devices

The 150W version:
- Has full PoE+ and 24V passive capabilities on all 8 ports to power 802.3af and legacy PoE devices
- Has 2 SFP ports for added copper or fiber interconnects between other devices without using the other 8 ports

The first one has POE+ on all 8 ports. The 2nd one only has it on 4 ports. The last one is powered by POE and has 1 pass-through port.

It comes down to how many PoE ports you need. If you need 8 PoE ports, choose the first switch. No more than 4 PoE ports, choose the middle one. And the bottom one is itself PoE-powered and has one PoE pass-thru port.

There are a lot of factors to decide on switches. Is the switch managed or unmanaged? How many ports have POE or POE+? There are many other areas to consider but for this market for consumers/prosumers those would be the bigger factors

I see. Makes a lot of sense. Thanks all!

I am a fan of Ubiquiti AP's. They are VERY stable once setup and allow quick connections. Now setting them up.....I slightly disagree with them being super easy. This is after taking an entire day to track down why one would not negotiate......OY! (Apparently it is possible to have an Ethernet cable to pass the connection test, power the AP properly...but still not allow it to negotiate. Finally put new connectors on to get it to work) Now I get this is the fault of the cable....but I felt there could have been a few things that could be added for troubleshooting.

I have played around with a few brands of switches...and here is how it seems to me.

D-Link is the most prone to fail within a couple or 3 years. I no longer have any that have not failed.

TD-Link and Trendnet are both pretty decent. I have seen a couple of fails over the years...but most seem ok.

Netgear seems the most reliable in switches....(Routers are another story)


Any of these brands seem to have more issues and quicker failures when you are dealing with the variable power "Green tech" versions.
I have had several Greenies stop negotiating above 10MB/Sec.
Some failed outright.

I have not had the pleasure of using a Ubiquiti Switch.

OK, back on point....

I am guessing the big sell on these is the "Managed" part and the "POE" part......but I am not certain and I am hoping someone can chime in with the answer.

I wish the 16-port switch has fanless design

Also worth mentioning the integration into the Unifi ecosystem. Managed from the same controller as your other Unifi devices, assuming you have some.

Very true...I assumed since the original question just asked about difference between the switches themselves that they knew the shared advantages already.

Oh ok. I misread the original question thinking they were asking about this vs.other switches like Netgear, etc. I think someone else's response led me down that road.

For me personally, the Unify integration is the primary reason I'd drop the extra coin on a Ubiquiti switch if I ever had to scrap my Netgear 24 port. It's been running solid now for 7 yrs 24/7 so who knows how much life it has left.
