HPE Ethernet Switches Review

They're dependable and we don't have to worry about them. Free and unlimited access to software for the switches would be very nice.

Valuable Features:

All the ProVisions and Comware-based switches work very, very well. They work and are very dependable at a reasonable price. The lifetime warranty is also a very nice feature.

Improvements to My Organization:

We don't have to worry about them, which means we can focus on more important things. They are dependable and the lifetime warranty is great. The price performance factor is very good.

Room for Improvement:

Free and unlimited access to software for the switches would be very nice.

Deployment Issues:

We've had no issues with deployment.

Stability Issues:

They have been very stable for us.

Scalability Issues:

They've scaled well for us.


The lifetime warranty is actually what typically can make or break a deal. It figures heavily into determining return-on-investment. Not having to pay extra for the lifetime warrant is what make the deal, for us, on these switches.

Other Advice:

Make use of the free manuals on the HP website. Just download them. They're actually quite good.
