In terms of learning basic metroe, is the standard me3400 worthwhile, or is it about as useful as the 1900s are for the SWITCH exam? I'm not speaking about any specific cert here, really. I just need to get *a lot* more experience with the me switches, and simply can't afford to spend several thousand dollars on me3600s, etc, so I'm hoping that the 3400s (not 3400e) aren't entirely useless since I might be able to scrape up enough cash to buy a few of them on ebay.
I haven't found any rental racks that feature multiple metroe switches, but if anyone knows about something I've missed, please LMK. I know that the INE racks have a single me3400, but using a single 3400 to learn metroe seems a lot like learning spanning tree with a single L2 switch.
