We are a small company (20 employees and we will be at most 40 within2 years) and I am thinking about my network equipement (switches).
My need are rather simple : connect user computers to switchs, connect FW/Router to switch and AD/Fileserver to switch. Maybe a couple of VLAN will be need and I see no other need right now.
For me it seems that both cisco, hp and 3com are able to do what I need and maybe at lot more.3com is about 1/3 of the price of a cisco (2960) and HP 1/2 of a cisco (2960) for more or less "equivalent" models.
Is 3com a bad choice ?
