Hey all,
I picked up a 48 port PoE, enterprise class switch from ebay last week and
am actually pretty amazed at how good this thing is for about $100 shipped.

It's an Aruba S2500-48P.  Here's the link:

The same seller has a 24 port model for a few bucks cheaper:

Here is a really good thread on these switches, covering configuration and
all sorts of information:

If you are looking for a good PoE switch, these are tooooooo good to pass
up.  I actually bought 2 more, because you know....just in case!

Not silent, but WAAAAYYY Quieter than the Cisco 3560's I have. there is a few fan mods in the thread I originally sent to make them silent. I am really loving this switch.
