Cisco GB versus NetGear GB

I know that Cisco has been the defacto standard for a lot of network infrastructure. Has anyone have any comment on some of Netgear newer switch. Especially the new ProSafe Layer 3 GSM7328s

What are you using it for? I think that many use cisco because its security is trusted more than others, and from a support perspective, if you know the cisco IOS, then you do not need to learn the details of other hardware. Overall, the specs for the GSM7328s incdicate its performance is good, it is stackable, supports 4 X 10GbE, it supports trunking and VLANs and includes support for protocols like jumbo frames and flow control which are necessary in some iSCSI configurations.
