We only run HP because of a few reasons:
Much cheaper than the other switch manufacture's comparable product line
Easy to get support on the phone (including config help)
Very knowledgeable support
Did I mention lifetime support/warranty.

Subject: request: fiber switch recommendations
I am shopping for 3-5 switches fiber ready or fiber module equipped to
integrate into my network. I have been very satisfied with a mostly HP
Procurve backbone 4000 and 2500 series with fiber modules added and
like the idea of sticking with a procurve configuration but they are
getting a little old. The fiber modules were pricy but have been
durable. I know there are cheaper and compatible and equally reliable
switches out there and am seeking recommendations.
