    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!

    I'll be going for the 2510-24G I think... only uses 30W of power as opposed to 60W too so the TCO will be fuirther reduced!

    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.

    Basically from want of a better expression - the 2510G is a more basic layer 2 switch and the 2810 is a mroe advanced Layer 2/Layer 3 switch. 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!
