ProCurve PoE Advice? ProCurve 600 or 610?

Hi, I'm looking for a little bit of advice before upgrading some modules in a couple of 5308XL switches to PoE modules. I'm knew to PoE so this might sound dumb.

If I replace 2 x 10/100Mbps modules with 2 x 10/100Mbps PoE modules in 2 switches I will require 4 x EPS ports to power them I think. Given that each 5308XL chasis has dual power supplies, is there any benefit to buying 2 x ProCurve 600's (with 6xRPS,2xEPS) or should I simply buy 1 x ProCuve 610 (4xEPS) given that the two switches are located within metres of each other?

Also, if I were to upgrade 2 more modules (requiring 6xEPS) presumably 1 x 600 + 1 x 610 would be the simplest power solution (even igoring the RPS capabilities?)

Thanks in advance.

The 610 can help you in this case and can power up your 4 PoE modules.

Good Luck !!!
