3700 vs powerconnect 6248

I am setting up a several vlans for my client and I have to implement a layer 3 switch. The client has a dell shop and is thinking about placing a powerconnect 6247 layer 3 switches. I have not worked with these switches before and want to implement a 3700 layer 3 switch. Can anyone tell me the pros and cons for going with the catalyst 3700?

by the way the user does not have voip phones but voice traffic is routed.

Re: 3700 vs powerconnect 6248

They are very comparable products based on their technical description.

PowerConnect 6247

Cisco 3750-E

The 3750-E has a slightly faster backplane and supports Cisco proprietary protocols such as HSRP and EIGRP.

The decision will always come down to price and what the customer is used to using.
