They're not great, but they do the job.
I turn them on once a term to check they still work and to allow software updates to go on.

For the sheer volume of things we have plugged into it, yes. A core switch to cover all our edge switches would cost us that. We have 15 cabinets that would need connecting up around the site. 15 x 10GbE ports isn't cheap.
