The first thing that I noticed is that it is very difficult to find examples of the SAN/iQ UI. On the other hand Equallogic screenshots are all over the place. I stole this equallogic pic from here
There is an image here

Now I realize that most of these are user generated web pages. But it is interesting to note that it seems to be a lot more difficult to find out what the UI of the LeftHand SAN will be.
So in the search to find out what the lefthand SAN will look like this is the first hit on youtube.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z4BJtTZx8z4 I could not make this up if I tried, ok don't watch that it actually doesn't show the interface. That presentation puts me to sleep (not produced by lefthand to be fair) I wish both of these vendors had more information out for what their stuff looked like.
Ok, after some heavy googling I ran across some screen shots for the LeftHand SAN
(From the spiceworks user limey, go spiceworks!)
Here is another http://www.eweek.com/images/slide/195931_5.jpg
I also found a couple of pics inside a book from here http://www.rtfm-ed.co.uk/docs/vmwdocs/srmbookchapter2-vsainstallandconfig.pdf
I hope that can sort of give you a taste of what the different UI's look like. Maybe some Equallogic or Lefthand people will reply with screenshots of common interface tasks. (To be fair I should probably download the LeftHand virtual machine and get some screen shots from it, maybe in a future post)
