    personally as mentioned previously i wouldn't use the v range and look to something like the E range 2810 which is circa Ģ900 (1000 euros) for a 24 port gigabit switch

    I use the E2610 (mix of 48 port and 24 port) simply because i don't need gigabit to the desktop (although it would be nice!)

    Cheap doesn't necessarily refer to purchase price alone. We're supposed to get 'best value', and part of best value is total cost of ownership over the lifetime of the device before planned replacement. So, figure in that you replace network gear every 7 years, add in the likelihood of failure, warranty, etc... and the device with the lifetime warranty is overall the better value one.

    Well, of course without the warranty for year 4 till replacement, I will have no next business day. But for this I could buy several additional non lifetime switches for instant replacement and save also money. I once bought a 2910al because of its warranty and hey I saw that looking at performance, it has higher specs than a 3500yl/6200yl, but its feature set is limited.
    I also have some HP 8000M and hey I have lifetime warranty, but what about features? Give me a working vlan aware loop detection feature on one port instead of lifetime warranty.
    Of course I like HPīs warranty and I was happy when HP aquired 3Com/H3C. Now I have some nice 3Com switches with HP label and some even not got HPīs real lifetime warranty.
    Talking about the V1910, for the price itīs a bargain, if you want lifetime warranty buy something else.
    (Do not take the V1905 series. Itīs completely different)

    Old thread, but to answer the original question the E series switches are HPs original Procurve line, and the A series are acquisitions from 3Com/H3C running Comware.

    Nowadays V1910 switches also have lifetime warranty. So no more argument against it ;-)
