In broad strokes: for your money you're either getting port density, or
more features per port. The only difference here is that there's
suddenly more TCAM on the device, and I still don't see the above
changing too drastically.

If it works* for you, use it. :)

* Assuming that you've done your due diligence before purchasing, and
not just skim-read the vendor PDF.
