Is this switch ok? Home use, 4-8 cameras, maybe one small ptz

BV-Tech 8 Gigabit PoE+ Ports with 2 Enthernet Uplink, 130W, 802.3af/at POE-SW802G

Yeah but my system is dead in the water, so went with the BV-tech so back up and running today.

Have another order for you soon for a buddy needs 2 big PTZ's and some other cameras and I'll get the poE switch from you. ;)

I bought one on eBay last year from them (refurbish) and it works great. Has been in garage during hot Oklahoma summers.

Bought that model (2 uplink) in June. Been working fine in my garage. Using all 8 ports, couple ptz's

There have been a couple of reports of premature failures of BV-tech switches by members here.

Had no idea Andy was carrying switches. ;)

Pulling my weight
I have multiple BV-tech switches bought from Amazon. All are working perfectly fine for years. One of the BV-tech 10-port switch lives outdoors in a weatherproof box. Two 8 port switches live inside my media enclosure in house. They are sandwiched next to each other, they can get hot but I have a fan on it. BV-tech is good stuff in my book, low cost, but just make sure you buy new on Amazon. I also bought their single port POE+ injector and that has been flawless for 3+ years as well. BV Tech is my goto for poe devices.
