If anyone has any experiences they'd be willing to share, or even lab
reports, on HP A6600, it would be helpful.  I believe this is the same
product as H3C SR6600.

We're being asked to "look at" A6604 facing our IPv4/IPv6 transit.  I'd
like to get some opinions before I go through effort of getting one in the
lab.

If HP's modular chassis are anything like their fixed configuration, I
would stay away from them.
We abandoned all HP networking equipment due to gross bugs and firmware
incompatibility.
We tried to deploy 10Gb with HP, but they had shipping hardware, with no
firmware to support the modules. Now they recommend us switching all our
Procurve line with H3C.

Needless to say, we will not buy HP/H3C equipment ever again, lesson
learned.

Juniper, Force10, Arista, and Cisco (surprisingly) make much better gear
these days at much more competitive pricing.
