Yes. We had all sorts of 'issues' with them at Cidera. The 460's 
weren't without issue either but seemed to be better overall. IIRC the 
5x0 series would do some funky voodoo that I cannot remember as it has 
been tooo loooooong ago.

Anyways, the 460 is just fine as a general purpose switch. Geez, we had 
hundreds of those at Cidera. I almost wish I had kept a couple for 
myself when I was liquidating the remaining units for them.
