Summary: Admittedly I am a Cisco guy. It is what I use the most. This is m first hp switch. Commands were a bit odd. Web interface is buggy at best. Stick with command line which is my preference anyway. Vlans were easy to setup and worked well. LACP was a breeze to configure. Not using any layer three functions yet. Flashing os was also very easy. So or the money warranty and lifetime os support which is something you have to pay for fro Cisco.......this is a great deal.
Summary: It came without a power cord or instruction book. I have other ProCurve switches and extra power cords so it wasn't a real big deal. I guess I should be happy, I paid $700 and other vendors are selling this item for over $1,000.
Great PoE Switch with LIFETIME NBD Advanced replacement Warranty!
19 June 2014
Summary: We only use HP switches and as far as PoE 48 Port Gigabit switches go this is the best! Easy to configure and works great. Excellent VLAN and PoE support with QOS for VoIP. A dependable work horse! Add to that the lifetime advanced replacement warranty from HP and you cannot go wrong. If it has an issue, HP will ship you a replacement one overnight and then you ship it back to them. No hassle service!
Summary: Mine didn't come with a power cord. Got my IT guys out to install. Now have to order the power cord separate and reschedule (standard power cords wouldn't fit). HP's website shows a power cord to be included... Kind of shoddy.
powerful switch but shipped with jerry-rigged power cable
Kindle Customer, Amazon
28 May 2014
Summary: The switch is a powerful switch, we use them extensively on our network. However this switch was sent with a jerry-rigged power cable that you can clearly see had been cut with a safety razor in an attempt to make the non-HP power cable fix the HP specific power connection that has a mound in the middle of the connector. Otherwise hopefully the switch powers on.
Summary: Seriously? You're going to charge $1500 for a switch, and not include a $15 bracket to properly rackmount it? Last time I'll be purchasing from this seller. Other than that, the switch works like it's supposed to.
