In my old setup, I had three unmanaged switches and all-in-one router (with switch and access point built-in). While they worked fine, I wanted some SMB features – LACP, IEEE 802.1Q, etc. That said, I needed to buy some form of managed switches.
I checked for used Cisco Catalyst 3560CG on eBay but they are still expensive. I also checked for used prices of Cisco SMB products and they are also expensive for my needs. By then, I realized that I should look at other vendors.
