What POE switch with 7960 Cisco IP phone

We are putting a VOIP system in and I am confused on what POE switch will work with the Cisco 7960 phone. i am not sure if we are getting just the 7960 or the 7960G but i can make sure to get one of the other if it helps or just get a particular switch. What do I need to look for in the switch?

ostsupport,

How many phones are you looking to roll-out ?
The Non "G" phones where not PoE compliant (IEEE 802.3af), so would stick to the "g" variant if possible.

Get a Cisco switch. They certainly work best with Cisco phones.
2960 or 3560 with PoE

3550 and 3524 are end-of-lifed and can only be purchased used.

I was planning on purchasing used. I usually do but do you think that for this is a bad idea and out of those options you see any clear winner or suggestion?

Clear winner is brand new stuff with full license and warranty - the 3560. I was mistaken with the 2960 - it does not support PoE. The older switches were not 801.3af compliant and may not work well with the newer phones and other PoE products like wireless access points, cameras, etc.
