I think Extreme are still trying to shake the "purple packet eater" moniker

That is sad to hear about your Extreme experiences. We have a few under
management, the interface is 'ok' - nothing special certainly.
But to update their pricing:
X650-24t (10GE Copper) will set you back around $32k
X650-24x (SFP+) is around $20k plus optics
AC PSUs are sold separately for around - $2k a pop
