Huh, wonder if B&H would price match this after the coupon.

Also, need to figure out what 250W translates to for POE devices. Would it be enough for a Cloud Key and a couple Lite APs? How much more current draw would be left?

B&H price matched down to 359.99 for me when I did a chat with them. I think the lite AP's only use 6.5W max so that should leave way more then enough power for the cloud key. I think that runs fine on the 8 port 60W switch.

Good to know! Very tempting.


Just wondering what Id lose (other than ports) coming from a Cisco SG200-50P switch. I really dont need 48 ports nor 24 POE ports. Need link aggregation and obviously a managed switch. But since I already have two Ubiquiti APs and a Cloud Key Im wondering if it would make more sense to have a Ubiquiti switch. Havent had a chance to sit here and compare datasheets, but it looks like thats what its going to take to figure it out.

So after looking at the data sheets a bit it was interesting to find that when comparing the Ubiquiti US-24-250W to the more comparable Cisco SG200-26P the Ubiquiti has it beat in pretty much every way I could see after a brief glance. They are also pretty much the same price.

Well I ended up just going with the Ubiquiti US-24 (non-POE version). Was only $200 from B&H.

After I thought about it more I came to the conclusion that I really only had 3 devices that needed to be powered by POE and I already have injectors for them. With the $160 not spent I added a Ubiquiti USG for $109 to the order. Figured Ill have to have 1 RU open in the rack anyway for the injectors to live so the USG can sit there with them. So now Ill have a complete Ubiquiti network in the house (USG, US-24, 2 AP Lites, Cloud Key). Well minus the un-managed switches anyway. Those are all various Cisco SG110 models.

We'll see how it goes. Looking forward to working with the GUI and all the analytics that the controller offers with all components being Ubiquiti. Should be fun.
