Experience with 3560-X stacking?

Cisco's "new" 3560-X series claims to have stacking capabilities.  Can anyone confirm/deny this?  Any experience with the platform?

Yes here is the Q&A on this.   I haven't done the 3560-x but I have several 3750-x switches.

That (like most of Cisco's site) is rather confusing - there are parts which allude the 3560-X can NOT be in a stack.  I always thought the primary difference between the 3750 and 3560 was the ability to stack, am I mistaken?

Ken BooneNetwork ConsultantCommented:
you are correct.   3560-X switches do not stack.  After reading through all the docs that is clear.



In addition to the above features, the Cisco Catalyst 3750-X switches also offer:

• Cisco StackPower™ technology: An innovative feature and industry first for sharing power among stack members

• Cisco StackWise Plus technology for ease of use and resiliency with 64 Gbps of throughput
