So just newer vs older gen. I remember buying the 1810-24G new. Basic VLAN + Web Managed. Mainly LifeTime warranty.Generally speaking, the letters at the end are simple hardware revisions. I think they run the same firmware. (the two different 2810s and 1810s)
Do these support MultiCast (for WDS/ FOG deployment in a Small Org)?I have both and love them. Rock solid switches.
I do prefer the UI of the 1810 over the 1800 but you aren't going to use it much. These are simple web managed switches. No CLI. Don't expect a whole lot more than setting up vlans and trunks. Most of mine are run as a dumb switch. I gave them an IP address just so I can get snmp stats from them.
There is no reason to buy an "A" as the "B"'s can be had for the same price and from what I know are better.
No. I've seen Procurve 2650 (10/100 with 2 gig uplinks, crusty shit) get replaced under normal lifetime warranty in 2016. It's been dead for a long time. Also, the 2810-24G/48G is long since dead and they still replace them.So just newer vs older gen. I remember buying the 1810-24G new. Basic VLAN + Web Managed. Mainly LifeTime warranty.
Does it mean life time until HP calls it EOL?
Shouldn't be an issue.Do these support MultiCast (for WDS/ FOG deployment in a Small Org)?
Or am I better off searching for a cheaper Smart Switch on Amazon. ??
