Hello,

Looking for a reasonably priced Aruba S2500-45P or Brocade ICX 6450-48P.

Located in California, in the Bay Area.

What is reasonably priced for the brocade?
I believe I've seen some rarely go on sale for 120-150, but not often. I'm trying to get my first L3 switch for my homelab and trying to keep costs as low as possible. Maybe I'm being unrealistic, but I don't mind waiting for an excellent deal.

I think the Aruba switches can often be found for sub $100 from time to time though.

I recently scored an ICX 6450-24 (non POE) for $50 shipped from ebay. Deals can be had, just need to keep looking.

True, I've seen good deals on the 24 non PoE models. The 48P models are difficult to find bellow 200-300 though. A little over my homelab budget.
