    Indeed, - I reckon that for small to medium-size schools, the Netgear ProSafe kit is very competitive - once you start getting into the intricacies of multi-cast routing and other more complex setups though, spending more on the HP or Cisco kit does begin to make sense.

    I just wish they'd bring out an 'N' version of their wireless controller (and yes, I know it's actually Aruba kit rebranded).

    We also have 3com 4400's and 5500-EI switches and we are very happy with them. Good performance and excellent quality/pricing ratio... If we had tons of $$ we would certainly buy cisco.
