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?
