    UK Brocade switches (icx6450, icx6610, TurboIron 24x, FWS624, FCX624, FCX648)

    Before I put these on the 'bay, I want to give people here a chance for a crack at them, by way of thanks (I've tried to undercut cheapest UK prices I found there). They're a mix of extras I don't need from a bundle, and stuff I've moved on from. Except one switch with mangled cages as below...

    ICX7150-C12P bricked, but PSU seems fine

    I've recently snagged a for-parts ICX7150-C12P off eBay, thinking it probably had the PSU issue or something. To my surprise, the PSU seems fine -- it puts out a constant 54V, and the switch LEDs light up and stay lit up. It doesn't seem to even start booting up though. All of the (non-port)...
