I want to buy a second supervisor card for my 6509 and I see that the price varies from $300+ to $16,000. I am not sure why it is such a big gap in the pricing. They all have the same part # ws-sup720-3b and Cisco certified. Is it safe to get the cheap one?

That can't be...

The WS-SUP720-3B went EOS (End Of Sale) on 1/30/13 with a last ship date of 4/30/2013.

So I'm guessing that you're not getting those prices from Cisco.

That said, it is still a serviceable supervisor.  I would query the merchant as to pricing variation.

It is a refurbished card from the websites. If you google it, you will see. The sup is still in support until 2017.

I made no comment about support. Only that it wasn't shipping from Cisco anymore. I also stated it was still a serviceable product.  

That said, if you found one for $16,000, I would guess that also includes a chassis, line cards and power supplies.  Or it's made of gold.

$150 - $500 looks like the going rate.

I found one at 11K and it is just a card, nothing else. I will talk to the vendor. Something is not right. It is quite expensive for just a card.  I think I can spend $500.
