Unanswered Question

What are the major differences between 3750-E PoE and 3560-E PoE switch? What is the reason to select one instead of another? Thanks.

I have this problem too.

3750 supports an high speed stacking connection, 3560 does not.

If you are looking for low cost PoE switches, get the 2960 PoE version.

Just to add a note to the good tips from Paolo, the videos below are pretty good and explain many of the differences;
