Not as great as the $160 AC that was offered a few weeks ago, but I'll take it.

That's not POE?

POE, SFP, integration with other Ubiquiti products.
If you don't need full POE, you probably don't need this switch or anything like it.

While both switches are web managed, UniFi, the management software for this switch is much more robust. It is what is called a software defined network where the entire network (router, switch, and wireless) is managed via the controller software. TP Link's web management software doesn't allow for the entire network to be managed and the software also isn't available outside of your own network without a TP Link router. The UniFi software can be hosted locally or remotely and work just as well (with the exception of guest control services for wireless which work faster when hosted locally) no matter if you only have one piece of UniFi equipment or your entire network is comprised of UniFi equipment. In addition, that TP Link switch doesn't support PoE.

For those unfamiliar with switches, there's 'dumb' switches ie what most home users have and then there's 'smart switches' that're closer to a proper switch (what virtually every business uses).

PoE = Power over Ethernet

PoE enables home and business users to attach things that require power without actually having to run a power cord to it. This is extremely beneficial as you'll not likely need an electrician which can significantly make a really expensive project, affordable. As long as you can run an Ethernet cable to the location, you're good to go.

Security cameras, access points (helps if you live in a large home, want saturated wifi), etc all benefit from PoE technology. If you do not need any of this, you do not need PoE enabled switches. You can have a smart switch w/o PoE and still setup VLANs, etc. It's just with smart homes / small business, the technology is more and more attractive.

Being able to control ports if you're slightly on the technical side has it's huge advantages and no drawbacks. It increases security and allows you to do a lot more with your network. ie If you have a laptop you want to convert to a pfSense firewall, and you only have 1 port. You can connect a managed switch with VLAN support just fine and add an access point for WiFi (AP's are actually a smarter idea anyways over a wifi nic).

If you decide one day you're way over your head and don't want to deal with it anymore and just want it to be a simple switch, where you just plug in and forget, restoring factory defaults takes a matter of seconds and you're good to go. It works out of the box without any configuration.

Question boils down, do you need this specific one? Probably not, there are cheaper ones, there are cheaper ones that're partially PoE that'd allow you to tinker with the technology. If it doesn't come with enough power, there are 'PoE injectors' that're cheap.

I'd buy this specific model only if you're planning on a PoE setup ie security cameras, otherwise I think for most home users it's seriously overkill.

I've been thinking about switching from my Edgerouter PoE and going with a USG + this but I'm not sure this is enough ports. I'm hoping to buy a new home later this year and I want to make sure I have enough PoE ports to run cameras all around.

Great buy though, the Ubiquity equipment is fantastic.My home network screams with it.

Have one (among other ubiquiti gear). Good switch, very stable.

This one is NOT rackmountable, just fyi. Good desktop switch (or wall mount)

For 16 Port I'd pay it, but since my current 8 port has only one port left :/

I love the AP's from Ubiquiti, I feel they are the best pretenderprise stuff you can get, but I feel the switches are just a bit too expensive.

You can do everything this switch does, minus the cool integration to unifi with a Zyxel switch that is just as easy to manage for about half the price.

I'll keep my eye out for a deal on a larger one though, one day I would like to get one.

agree completely. I think the pretenderprise market is really shifting toward 10GbE now that HEDT systems are starting to come with it onboard.
