I'm still trying to wrap my head around the
differences between setting up a VLAN vs. just using
multiple subnets on the same physical network.

Is the primary difference that with a true VLAN you'd
be using higher-end switches that are smart enough to
prevent traffic from different VLANs from colliding
with each other?  Is it possible to set up VLANs using
consumer-grade network switches?
