Looking at two small business switches. Both 48 port 10/100/1000 switches.
Cisco (linksys) SGE2010 vs. Dell PowerConnect 5548. Anyone have any experience or comments on these two switches. They're both around $1200. Can't decide which one to get, and hoping to get some recommendations based on knowledge/experience. Thanks!

If I had to decide between a linksys product and a Dell PowerConnect, I would pick the PowerConnect.

You may also want to take a look at HP switches as well.

They both look decent, but I think the Dell edges out the Cisco.

Dell,because the firmware updates don't require a contract.

I've had very good luck with Netgear as being solid,reliable with a great warranty and very much cheaper.

Cisco is all about the contract.
