We are running full Ubiquiti at 5 out of 6 schools and may eventually be
moving the 6th school to it.

I really can't speak for their support as we've never had to use it. Their
stuff works well enough and is cheap enough to get a few spares. If
something isn't working right, just throw a new one in.
