Im looking at the TP-LINK TL-SF1008P as its reasonably priced, but it has a coupke of things that really **** me off with switches, firstly the LEDs are on the other side to the sockets, and that there is no brackets for it at all to even fasten it to a shelf. I dont know if the PSU is internal or not, but I suspect it is a brick with the wattages needed.

Anyone know of any other sub $100 POE switches that maybe do have it all on one side, brackets (or even just factory threaded holes I can drill my own to fit) and hopefully an inbuilt PSU? Bonus if it has more than 4 powered ports but that is not essential at the moment.

Its gig which is a bit unneeded for phones, but would be good when I find some proper accesspoints to put around the house instead of the slow G gear I have at the mo.

Unless there is something within double the price with more ports powered I may as well just get the TP-link one, since I am assuming that the gig ones will come down in price so by the time I can afford some proper dual band wireless kit I can get that too.
