If a networking appliance manufacturer added a clause in their T&C saying NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR HACKING LOL then, yes, by all means, dump them. Especially if they have been hacked over and over and over in the past. Especially if some of those hacks have originated from dumb and sloppy workmanship and corner-cutting.
Since this is clearly not the case here, I think Ubiquity is still a safe buy. You know the old expression, fool me once, shame on you, fool me like eight or nine times, shame on... I forget how it ends.
that would just be one more reason I wouldnt use them on top of the many I dont now

hmmm, maybe we should if someone finds a bitcoin miner running on their switch... or if ubiquiti propagates the installation of a trojan... or maybe if ubiquiti starts selling a $75 400W 24 port PoE switch direct while doing all of the above.

its not a big, its a comparison. Ubiquiti is not a serious security manufacturer. comparing their cameras is irrelevant. but putting their switches into perspective price wise with Hik, is relevant. regardless of pricing, the rest of my statement goes unchallenged... ;)
Note to whomever is categorically unhelpfulling all of the OP's posts:
Next time try skipping a few here and there, that way it might make it look like it's related to what the post actually says; and more importantly that it's just not one person...

I had a reply ready and then network went down and lost connection, but basically it boiled down to something something something, cant be a rockstar every day, something something.
Had no idea hik was making switches now. My main concern is their obvious goal to drop the bottom out of the industry and thin the herd so to speak. the whole communist shareholder things is just icing on the cake to me. I want a healthy industry that is profitable and able to innovate and provide excellent service where the return is worthwhile for great minds to invest their time and big wallets to invest their money in moving it forward. I see Hik as attacking that with their scorched earth-security be damned pricing model,

also, not I on the unhelpful, not that it matters much.

Great thought Jon. I use Ubiquiti all the time without issues and have NO PLANS to cease using it no matter who makes it. Similar to the HikVision issues discussed before, the experience and knowledge of the company installing the components makes a world of difference AND following that the ability of the network professional in designing the system it 'could' reside on is paramount.
