    Maybe but some schools simply don't have the resources to spend £5k+ on a core switch. And if the choice for a school was a cleaner or a switch, then there is only 1 choice for them.

    10K+ (they're redundant)

    Just asking myself, whether we are talking about 10Gbe or 1Gbe slots?

    I have D-link exclusively and have had no problems. I have 2 x DGS3627 with 24SFP modules and 2x 10Gbit as my backbone plus 27 Gbit 24 and 48 port switches.
    I have had 1 port failure and the switch was immediately swapped out without question via courier

    Well, that´s right, but if you have equipped your server with SFP+ NICs and now you have no money left to buy a 10Gbe switch ;-)

    i'd be doing that the other way round, buying the 10gb switches and then settling for plugging the servers in the edge switches via copper "temporarily" as the servers were much more likely to be replaced before switches
