      comparison

      Hello,

      I might suggest to check with HP to see if these switches have not been end of life / end of sale.

      We have some materials here and there, and if you follow this next link, the top link will take you to the fixed configuration switches versus the competition:

      http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/ps10143/product_at_a_glance_list.html

      Are you in touch with your sales or SE? Many times the account teams can help you win. We always want to win 😉

      If you need a L2 switch, click on:
      http://www.cisco.com/go/2960s

      If you need a L3 switch, click on:
      http://www.cisco.com/go/3560

      use them both. Cisco has way more features than HP, so if you use
      more of the advanced features, you’ll probably find HP lacking a bit
      more of the adanced features, and being more of just the basics of what a
      managed switch should be.

      But, if the feature set matches with what you are using them for, ProCurves
      have been pretty dependable.

      I guess I don’t factor maintenance in, as I stock my own spares, and
      don’t need to upgrade much, so most of my stuff isn’t on Smartnet.
      Most of the Catalyst line is on a limited lifetime waranty though as well

      By no means it is perfect but it is certanly a guide on the right direction.
