I probably prefer the opposite to MHC (when it comes to PoE at least) 😀
Tend to have a lot of gear which is increasingly PoE powered...DECT and WiFi access points, Cisco IP phones in our office, HIKvison compact PTZ cameras, smart bridges for Philips Hue lighting, SimonsVoss door entry, SensorPush gateway for temp/humidity sensors.
There's other stuff which is just more convenient to power over the data cabling, even if the devices are not native PoE - so use TPLink 'splitters' with a 5/9/12VDC selectable output voltage for that - the data network becomes a distributed power socket!
Probably just over three-quarters of the stuff with a wired connection actually needs PoE. So preference is definitely one box and the plug and play - plug in a device in whether it’s PoE (or not) and know it’s “fed and watered” for both data and power. Keeps my comms cupboard tidier too.
Other approaches equally valid - just comes down to approach/preference and circumstances 😎😂
