Price wise, it is a more expensive solution.

We need to pay when we buy the switch. We pay for a license to use the software, but it is not required.

They are affordable and less expensive than Cisco. Their price was the decider at the time.

One of its greatest selling features is its price. It's very cheap - much cheaper than Cisco. That, coupled with its general comparable capabilities to other items on the market make it a very attractive option.

You do need to pay quite a bit for the license. The pricing could be a little bit less, to be honest. As a product that's made in Taiwan, you would assume it would be cheaper than it is.

The pricing is very reasonable. However, it could still be lower to make it more affordable to mid-range organizations.

This is an expensive product. Some features can be added after purchase, which comes at an additional cost.

There is no license for this solution. We need a license for having a management solution, but the switch does not need a license. There are free software updates and there is a lifetime warranty for a few of the switch series. If a customer has an issue with a switch and has to return to HPE, they can have it replaced within thirty days. To our customers, we offer a contract service to have an exchange within the next day.
