Difference between 3550 and 3560??

I don't know if this exist but I'm looking for a matrix that shows the feature and hardware/software differences of all Cisco access switches. For example 3560 vs 3560 vs 3750 etc. Something simple that just shows the major differences between the models.

Hi,

3550 is EOS/EOL, Enterprise customers are encouraged to migrate to Cisco Catalyst 3750 Series and Catalyst 3560 Series switches, which provide new and enhanced functionality including IEEE 802.3af Power over Ethernet (PoE), higher-density Gigabit Ethernet (GE), and IPv6 routing. The Cisco Catalyst 3750 Series switches feature Cisco StackWise? technology, a 32-Gbps stack interconnect that allows customers to build a unified, highly resilient switching system, one switch at a time.

Always use the Cisco Switch Guide:

Hello,

Here is a great guide that spells out the actual differencs from a training vendor on the 3550 and 3560. I know a big difference is 3560's support IPV6 and do Shared Round Robin for the QOS VS weighted Round Robin.
