Basically I know nothing about this product. It seems to be nice only because of the ports for this price.
There were few posts talking about similar model: G8264 of IBM, such as this thread. Lenovo bought this product line from IBM few years ago.

For sure, this switch is heavy, noisy (maybe) and power hungry (spec):

  • Acoustic noise: Less than 65 dB
  • Electrical power
    • Typical: 253 W
    • Maximum: 300 W

-----
Edit: price dropped to $130. Thanks @metag for letting us know.
For about 1/3 price of CRS326-24S+2Q+RM but doubled ports, so tempting...

----
Edit 2: sold out. Somebody bought almost the whole lot.

It's actually a very interesting switch:
(Notice the Ethernet, FC and FCoE on the same switch)

The RackSwitch G8264CS includes the following features:
  • Lossless Ethernet, Fibre Channel, and FCoE in one switch
  • A total of 36 SFP+ ports that support 1 Gb or 10 Gb Ethernet
  • Flexibility with 12 Omni Ports that support 10 Gb Ethernet or 4/8 Gb Fibre Channel connections
  • Can aggregate FC or FCoE traffic and connect to SANs
  • Future-proofed with four 40 Gb QSFP+ ports
  • Low cost, low complexity, and simpler deployment and management
