Good switch but missing 1 HUGE basic functionality
I *love* the procurve line .... these are generally great switches. The web-manageability is a great -- lots of switch features available via the gui. And add a lifetime warranty and it's almost perfect. BUT! One *HUGE* omission!!!! You CANNOT [at the time of this writing] IDENTIFY what is plugged into a given port! An amazing deletion of functionality because this is a "web-managed switch only" according to HP. The switch can be powered remotely over a POE adapter or switch that provides POE, but you cannot tell over the web what is plugged into the switch without rummaging thru the mac address table manually??? Every buyer of this who cares about remotely identifying ports should complain to HP about this.
