(3) Key Benefits of PoE powered Pi's: A) Can power a Pi from cold just by disabling and then re-enabling the port on PoE switch it's connected to B) Max length of an Ethernet cable is 100m vs 1m for standard Pi mains power cable C) Powers external USB hard drives without need for a powered USB hub. These were always crap, never seem to last long and added to the clutter on your desk. Now you can just plug an external HD into your Pi and voila! there it is. Anybody trying to use their Pi's as security cameras will have bumped into the issue of the piddlingly short mains cable making it impossible to place cameras more thanmeter from a mains socket. The PoE switch I use with my PoE powered Pi's is the ZyXEL GS1900-8HP-GB0102F. Did a lot of research on this switch and this is the one you want. even supports IPv6 and SNMP v3 -Terrence Houlahan, Linux & Network Engineer
