Pilot: New Product Comparison Module

December 21, 2010

On the web team, we’re always experimenting with new functions to make your life easier.  The latest is an interactive product comparison module, that allows you to filters views of models by different criteria, and build a dynamic side-by-side comparison showing the different attributes of the models you’ve selected.

We’re piloting the first one on a Cisco Small Business 100 Series Unmanaged Switches comparison, and we’d like your feedback on this functionality.

Here’s how it works:  Let’s say you want to compare the features of the models in the 100 series. When you go to the comparison page, you’ll see the complete list, partially shown here:

You can check and compare straightaway, or filter the list (via the control box on the left) to make it more focused.  In this case, I have filtered on Gigabit Ethernet just as an example, which sizes down the list:

Then check off the boxes you want to compare, press the Compare button, and you’ll be presented with a side-by-side listing showing the various features and attributes of the various models:

We’re thinking of using this elsewhere around the site, so give it a try and let us know what you think.

  1. Martin,

    Congratulations on the new home page. These product comparisons are also looking great. We're trying to do some similar solutions for Systems reminiscent of the Sun Product Finder.
