External power supply is bad, but one port can be used to PoE which
means the external power supply can be dropped

For 50$ more you will be able to by a much more powerful switch which
allow connecting via a seriel interface. The HP 1910-8G Switch.

Smart switches only have a web interface which means your only option,
should your configuration be screwed, will be to do a hardware reset
and the start all over again. If you have a serial interface you will
not be locked out. This is like having a VM without console interface
and only be able to connect via net. If you loose your net you loose
your access to the VM.
