Pricing Advice

What users are saying about OptiView XG pricing:
  • "Its price was a bit excessive. The device that I had died. It is under warranty, and they want $20,000 for another one. I just don't want to spend that kind of money, so I'm trying to find an alternate solution. They have annual maintenance on it, which probably was 10% a year, so it all starts to add up."

A valuable, impressive, and portable product that saves time and has great scalability and stability

What is our primary use case?

It does the inventory of the network. I was using the current version, but the device died. I am just looking for a replacement.

Pros and Cons

  • "It is a very valuable tool. It goes out and does a discovery, which is a great process of it. You could have something like a rogue DHCP server, and it will identify it, and then you can see to which switch port it is connected. It is quite an impressive tool. I really liked it because you didn't have to install an agent on anything. It would just go out and do its discovery. For me, that's great."
  • "Its price can be improved. Their support can also be improved a little bit. In terms of features, it did everything I wanted it to do. With more features, I would have to start installing network agents or something else, and I don't want to have to install anything. This was the value for me about this device."

What other advice do I have?

I would rate OptiView XG a ten out of ten. It did everything that I wanted to do, and I was very happy with it.
