What's the difference between Procurve 2510-24G and 2810-24?
Other than the huge price difference, what is the difference between ProCurve 2810 24G Switch (J9021A) specifications - HP Small & Medium Business products and ProCurve 2510G-24 Switch (J9279A) specifications - HP Small & Medium Business products ?
I need a switch for iSCSI so either one is probably a little bit of overkill (although the magic of VLANs will allow me to use it for other bits).

I can't see any major differences for what you want to do.

What's the actual difference though? The specs look identical!

Protocol support, by the looks of it.

Ah yes.... if I open my eyes I can actually see that!

- Rep Power
It comes down to features.
The 2810 has more capabilities - such as sFlow, source port filtering, and enhanced security capabilities. I think the 2810 also has optional redundant power capability through the 600 RPS/EPS.
The 2810 also does up to 9,220-byte Jumbos, whereas the 2510G falls 4 bytes shorter at 9,216 !

The big difference is the 2510 contains 24 10/100 ports and either 2 or 4 1000mbit/gbic ports. The 2810 contains 24 10/100/1000 ports and 2 10/100/1000/Mini-GBIC ports.

The OP is talking about the 2510G not the 2510 - the G denotes all Gigabit ports.

For your iSCSI - your not really going to need anything more than the 2510G IMHO - as the bottleneck will end up being your iSCSi SAN's network interface itself and whether it supports bonding 2 or more gigabit links.

The 2510 has a serial port... whereas the 2810 doesn't....
We use that 2810 as the central server switch for our student network.

Doh! What a bizarre naming scheme!
