I suspect you're likely looking to make up a comparison sheet to perhaps justify obtaining a 2960 vs. brand-X, but the intangible "does it really work as it's supposed to" is often overlooked by "bottom line" bean counters until they start to tote up the cost of unplanned downtime. I'm not saying Cisco equipment is perfect, but stories (and they're not fictional) of Cisco equipment being on-line without a reload for years and years (sometime longer than some Brand-X company has even been in business), shouldn't be overlooked.
It's often difficult to justify obtaining Cisco equipment on just sales literature features.
