I like the HP Procurve Products:
Procurve 2824, 24-ports of GigE (4 ports can be either copper or fiber) List
$2,499 look for a street price around $1,970
Procurve 2848, 48-ports of GigE (4 ports can be either copper of fiber) List
$4,899 look for a street price around $3,855
They are both 1U form factor, stackable; the 2824 has a switching capacity
of 48Gbps and the 2848 has a switching capacity of 96Gbps

Subject: [Beowulf] Good 1 Gbit switches - which ones?
Can anyone offer an insight with respect to 1 Gbit switches for a Beowulf
cluster? There are all these reports that a lot of inexpensive switches on
the market tend to choke under heavy internal traffic. Can anyone suggest an
affordable switch with good internal bandwidth, which was tested under heavy
load, and actually worked well?
