eBay or New from Manufacturer?
I was just wondering about your opinions on used networking hardware, typically from eBay: Has it usually been reliable and in good condition?
I know it always depends on the seller but in this case I'm just looking for a general opinion
Some of the expensive and more realiable vendor are okay. But many of the cheaper switches and that stuff doesn't work as promised.
Okay. I was looking at colomachine for a colo machine, of course
, but I think I may go with Dell for their support packages.
We have ordered colo machines off of ebay in the past. No problems with them so far.
Alot of times you can get the same equipment brand new for not too much more going to the source and as you said companies like Dell offer very nice support so It is a personal preference.. I like the added assurance if anything fails I can pick up the phone..
Okay. Thanks for the input everyone.
i used to buy a lot of stuff on ebay, it was roughly as promised 90% of the time...but for the prices and support that dell has...man its hard to say no to their systems.
