As far as I recall, I got my switch from CDW for around $80 or $85, which 
is close. However, I did get cables from NewEgg for about $10 each, so my 
total cost came out to about $140 with shipping included as opposed to $175 
for Karl. Just a note for anyone else who wants to do comparison shopping.

Excellent. Happy to see a problem get solved.
