I guess we've had good experience with ProCurve, so have stuck with them.
I also like the fact that it is the same code train for the 5400
chassis and 3500 fixed-format. Less work for me when it comes to the
test-upgrade cycle. We also make heavy use of sFlow monitoring
(although I believe Foundry supports this too.)
Anyway, it's another option.
