This is a great deal! The Ubiquiti's are a step above the rest simply because of the power over ethernet feature (POE). Most POE access points require you to have an expensive POE enabled switch. The Ubiquiti's come with a little POE ethernet adapter box that accepts the ethernet cable from your switch that you plan to use for the access point. You then plug another ethernet cable from that box and run that to the access point. This means for ceiling mounting or anywhere a power outlet is not there or accessible makes these very convenient. If you can route an ethernet cable to the spot you want to place one of these you are in good shape. Not to mention these are built at an enterprise grade level vs a lot of the consumer access points available out there.

Anybody know if these work with the integrated wireless access point management in Sophos UTM?

While I applaud Ubituiti for both providing a PoE adapter, and for the tiny size of their adapters, I wouldn't say using the adapter is a preferred option. PoE switches are somewhat more expensive, but not outrageously so, and they have the advantage of 1 less thing in the link. After all, the Ubiquiti PoE adapters do require power via their own AC adapter. All these 'extras' are potential sources of failure.

 

Again, I appreciate Ubiquiti providing the adapters, and I have certainly used them, but I would use a PoE switch first, if one is available.
