I have several of these (or a similar model), and they are all super  
solid.  The only downside I run into is that they will not let me run  
a port as both tagged and untagged VLAN (ie, say you have a VOIP  
phone that can do untagged passthru but keep itself on a tagged  
VLAN).  I've had them online for years in really cruddy conditions,  
and they keep on trucking.

I never had any problem getting firmware for them from Nortel's  
website either... even the full manuals are up there.  I was  
surprised to see they are worth next to nothing on ebay, as I can't  
find anything wrong with them.
