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.
