OK. Point taken. I think you could still do fine and save some cash by getting a 16 or 24 port Trendnet switch from the egg on an eBlast or ShellShocker deal.

I had a lighting strike that messed up a switch so I decided to upgrade from Netgear GS116 and GS108 to Cisco's new Small Business class gear and have to say I am quite happy with it: Cisco Small Business 100 Series 8 port GigE Switch and Cisco Small Business 100 Series 16 port GigE Switch and there was only a $20 premium/per so not the end of the world. Seriously considering changing out ASUS RT-AC66U as my firewall with: Cisco Small Business Dual Gigabit WAN/VPN Router. Anyway good luck with whatever you decide.

Today's eBlast had a good deal on a d-link switch. Either 16 or 24 port.. I didn't check the model number or port count closely as I just saw it as I was scrolling the ad..

I ended up getting the hp 1910-24g. Found a decent deal on it so made the plunge. Thanks all.

I have several PCs, a couple of network tuners, a printer/scanner and a server hanging off it.

These often go on sale so keep an eye on Slickdeals.net

[Edit]Actually, this is the one I have: http://www.amazon.com/TP-LINK-TL-SG1016D-1000Mbps-Rackmountable-Capacity/dp/B004ELA0SS ($85 @ Amazon). The first one above doesn't have the "D" in model number. I don't what the difference is.
I'm considering the 24 port model of this switch. It appears TP-LINK puts a "D" in the model number of their desktop switches and leaves the "D" off for switches in rack-width chassis. They probably have the same hardware inside.

Mfg. Product Page:
TP-LINK TLSG1024 17.3" wide
TP-LINK TLSG1024D 11.6" wide

I received my HP 1910-24g but the fan was a bit too loud for me. I am going to try and return the switch and get something fanless. I did not think the fan would be loud but wife does not approve so it has to go.

I know the HP1810-24g is fanless as well as the Zyxel so to decide which one to get. I would like to get a managed switch.
