yeah, what he said. ;-)
We've used these for 18 months without a hitch (we don't need vlan
support). Anything above 6-7 clients per server and you'll need gig-e
between the server and switch.
Also, be aware of the noise level of a switch if it's going to be in a
classroom. We were provided with some really nice Linksys switches but
they are significantly louder - fan noise.
