I picked two scratch and dent TS-3000's on Ebay for around $40 a piece, roughly 1/2 to 1/3 what a Cisco 2509 generally goes for. The CLI based initial config wizard to put it on my LAN was simple and took all of 5 minutes.
Because you use a serial rollover cable to connect to equipment, I can build my own custom cables, for around $0.25 a piece.
The web-based config options are extensive, as are the the security options.
All in all, a great device. There are a few people selling literally hundreds of them on Ebay right now. I may pick up 5-10 for the racks I sell.
And with the TS-3000, I can go back to running Putty Manager. I was missing my tabs...(I think I'll likely be ponying up for a Secure CRT license, though.
