SG300-52MP replacement option: SG350X-48MP or SG500X-48MP

Mikhail Faifman

current env: asa-5506 --> sg550xg-24 --> sg300-52mp.

want to replace sg300 with another cisco switch with 10G uplinks.

price difference is about $250-$300 between new SG350X-48MP (about US$1000-$1100) and used SG500X-48MP  (SmartNet eligible, $700-$800). Used SG500X will be cheaper.


There is also an option to pick 'WS' (excess stock) SG550X-24P for $900 (we can make it work with 24 ports and keep old SG300-52MP for few low bandwidth clients.


However, prefer 1-to-1 swap for simplicity and less maintenance overhead.


Please do not start offering to explore other brands and stick to Cisco SG350X and SG500X series.

Your business accept what you try to replace, go for it, end it matter is its access switch for your client, as long the switch has support and you able to get smart net contract to replace when you have issue. it not matter is this excess stipck ..what ever to be honest.


every one like to save the costing so look for best option to protect business returns.

How to Ask The Cisco Community for Help

Thank you! My only hesitation with SG500X switches is the limited support ending in 2023. 3 years is good for ROI but current models such as SG350X and SG550X are offering 5+ years of support. I think SG350X is the way to go.
