No downside... except power consumption, looks like it draws "65W
(Cisco Catalyst 3560-48TS)" excluding PoE.  The Engenius I mentioned
draws 13W.  :-)  Of course, if it's for work and it's not your dime, go
crazy (unless you're green, in which case go crazy and feel guilty).

everything high-end on you.  Oh well.  Maybe SDN is on to something
after all??
