    defective hardware for a corporate environment is one thing, but some of this enterprise gear is very $$
    Luckily enough since i work for a Gold partner, we have pretty quick response to issues such as this, but luckily we havnt encountered anything... yet
    but i will keep my ear open as i deal with millions of dollars worth of cisco gear on a daily basis

    Cheers!
