    They tend to put the website prices (especially on there website) higher then the resellers to make it look like you are getting a good deal, and then the prices from Account Manager is so much cheaper to make it look even better.

    Just saw this post and we are here for a comparative price also for anyone in need.

    I agree with the online price comments though, never ceases to amaze me how much some people charge!

    We have a E5412zl at the core of our network. It's fantastic for our needs. Happily routing eight vlans, 700 devices with hardly any load at all

    Replaced all the switch gear the summer just gone. Much of it came from CP ltd. Excellent service from them. But they were beaten on price of the 5412. Can't win 'em all Chris! Definetley worth approaching though.

    Can I just echo and confirm what was said about always asking your account managers and emailing companies direct rather than worrying about any prices you see online. I think we're just about to bag a pair of 5406zl 44port POE switch units for half what we found online... Definitely shop around!

    I agree, it's always worth shopping around. Just be careful, i've heard of horror stories in the past where people thought they were buying genuine HP kit, spent thousands on it and it turned out to be HP renew or grey stock.

    Sometimes you'll never know the difference between real and grey stock but sometimes, when the worst happens, it can damage or void the HP warranty leaving you up #*#* creek without a paddle!!!

    So if it seems too good to be true, be careful and get it in writing that it is genuine UK stock and then if it all goes wrong, you can go back to them and tell them to sort it!
