I've been very happy with TRENDnet switches. I've had a 24G WebSmart switch feeding all my components in the house for years, and I have a couple of 5 port switches feeding little remote islands. I also bought an 8 port PoE 10/100 switch for my Sister and an 8 port Gig switch for my sister-in-law. All of it has been flawless. They tend to be a bit more expensive than the bottom end consumer switches, and their features are nowhere nearly as advanced as the Cisco, Juniper, or HP commercial grade switches, but they offer great value for a very competitive price.
