NewEgg.com currently has some good prices in unmanaged HP switches.
8 port 10m-1gig for $155.49
24 port for $276.99
Not cheap, but good stuff.
I used to get amazing results from LinkSys and NetGear..
but the last few I've bought seem to have a high "brick" factor.
They work, and then they upgrade to a brick.
And I have an old 100mbps NetGear 4 port HUB I use for sniffing
and desktop use that is still fast and rock solid after.. well,
switches were expensive: 2000? 1998?
