The 3550-EMIs, particularly the 3550-12s, were a hot little switch in
their day.  L3 routing and up to 10 optical ports would otherwise spell
a 4500 (only 6Gbps at the time) or 6500.

We still use some 3550-12s, doing L3 routing and VRF-lite, pushing those
capabilities out to some areas we couldn't otherwise afford.

If you don't need IPv6 or advanced QoS, they're still a hot little
switch.  And yes, cheap aftermarket while they last.
