Too Many Tp-Link & Trendnet Switch Failures. Any Ideas?

I really need some advice.

We have switches go out like crazy!

I mean all the time!

I understand that we are not using high end switches.

We are using Trendnet POE and gigabit switches.

They just go bad out of the blue with no explanation.

Today at one location we had 6 POE switches bad... out of the blue.
Also, today at another location we had 2 or 3 switches out there too.

I don't mean old switches. I mean less than 1 year old.

We used to use TP-Link but those went out a lot so we change to Trendnet... but they are no better.

We typically just plug the switches into a surge protector type power strip.

I really need some advice here.

thanks :)
