Summary: I haven't fully tested the switch yet but seems to be working great. Seller told me that port 22 was dead, it isn't. Be careful buying old Cisco equipment, some is in good and some isn't. Look at the specs and which IOS software is on it.
Summary: This switch arrived in absolutely pristine condition to the point where I almost forgot I'd ordered a used product, along with a very friendly letter offering to amend any deficiency that may exist. All settings were reset to factory standard (very importantly, including VTP counters and settings). Rollover cable and power cord appear brand new and unused.
Summary: I bought two switches and These all of switches are working perfectly. and This switches also have a ipservice level license. Thanks for selling a good products to me. Greeting from South Korea.
I really hope Cisco starts to make their pricing more real life.

Summary: Ive always been a Cisco fan. Great products. Recently placed this switch on one of our job sites. We needed a L3 switch with multicast routing capabilities. It does the job well. The reason for the 3 stars are 1st the high price and second of Cisco IOS has become really slow booting up. Else it would be 5 stars for me.
As advertised. Works great even with cosmetic scratches, better than most!

Summary: Switch came without an IOS. I had to setup a TFTP server and get the IOS onto the switch. Once I was able to do that it has functioned as intended. I have yet to use the POE feature of the switch, at this point I can only assume it will work. But the product looks great, had a few cosmetic scratches I was able to darken up with a sharpie, not that it matters since it is just going to sit in a closet and run phones and security cameras.
This is a Layer 3 capable switch, but not Layer 3 as-is

Summary: The switch works as it is supposed to in the normal, managed switch sense. I've not tested out the POE functionality, but I suspect it works just fine. I purchased the 3560 to do Layer 3 VLAN routing as a 'core' switch for a small business. I was operating with the understanding that the 3560 series are all Layer 3 capable. This information is not easy to find, so I thought I would share here...you have a purchase a license to activate Layer 3 on the 8-port 3560.
