It is what it is and can be used by anyone; no expertise or prior knowledge is required. I would rate HPE Ethernet Switches a seven out of ten.

I'm not sure which version of the solution we are currently using. When you compare it to other switches, there are no real big differences. It may have a few different specifications here or there, however, largely, it's comparable to everything else that is also on the market. In general, on a scale from one to ten, I would rate the solution at an eight. I've been largely quite pleased with its overall capabilities so far. I'd recommend the solution to other companies and users.

We're resellers of the solution. I'm not really on the technical side. I'd recommend the solution for the most part. It's fine to use. Overall, the solution is average, which is why I would rate it at a five out of ten.

I would recommend these two versions of switches that we have been using. When we compared with Cisco, we chose HPE because of the buffer and the architecture is more suitable than Cisco. I would rate the HPE Ethernet Switches an eight out of ten.

There's the familiarity factor for us. It's something that we hold on to. If you know the product is stable, and it's not outdated then you'll continue to use it. I think it's on par with other vendors like Dell. I'm very satisfied with everything. I've been using HP for a long time already and I think it's quite reliable, even my printer is HP. I would rate this solution a nine out of 10.

We're just a customer. We don't have a business relationship with HP. I can recommend it to middle size companies due to the fact that it's stable and the prices are quite fair. It's also very popular as a product, so it's easy to find experts to manage it. Overall, I'd rate the solution nine out of ten. It really isn't lacking, from our point of view, and has never given us any trouble.

Overall, the product works very well, we don't have any problems, and I can recommend it. Although people can have a lot of trouble with these switches, they are human management issues. This is why we are careful to choose the correct products and to do the implementation and integration correctly. I would rate this solution a seven out of ten.

Overall, this is a good product except for the support. I would recommend this product aside from the troubleshooting because the service is awful. I would rate this solution an eight out of ten.

My advice would be to draw the network system before calling a technician. It's necessary to do a good job. The price is not the only thing to consider when making your decision. The switches are guaranteed for life, it's a great solution. I would rate this solution an eight out of ten.

I would recommend the Hewlett Packard product. They are very, very stable, and for the money it's really good value. I would rate the product a nine out of 10.

We only use the basic features in this solution. It is just a small configuration that we work with. Perfection does not exist and it's always possible to do more. I would rate this solution a nine out of ten.

We use the 2500 PoE switches. I have a lot of experience with HP switches. They're very reliable and are implemented easily. The features that they offer are more than enough for our hospital. There are other features on solutions like Cisco and Juniper, but for what we need, this solution is perfect. I'd rate the solution eight out of ten.

This is a solution that I recommend. My advice to anybody researching this type of solution is to not go for the cheap solution. Go for the right one. You get what you pay for. I would rate this solution an eight out of ten.

I would suggest not to invest in this switch. Aruba, which is also HPE, has a great switch. Aruba is taking over these types of switches because of the DLAN and WLAN. I agree that HPE provides good products but I would go with Aruba OS. I would rate this solution a six out of ten.

When it comes to HPE switches, as a recommendation, in the end it depends on the requirements. They have to know exactly what they need because HPE has all types and all levels of switches. They keep changing models, and sometimes we have challenges because we find out that two years later, the model is discontinued. Because of this, I say that it is important to purchase the latest model, and not one that is two or three years old because in another year it will be discontinued. I would rate this solution an eight out of ten.

I would recommend this product and also a support contract. I don't think that I would pay this price without getting the support. We are happy with this solution but it is really an old model. I would rate this solution a six out of ten.
