    You could try:
    Layer 3 Rack Mountable Managed Gigabit Switch GSM7312
    or
    ProSafe™ Layer 3 Managed, Stackable, Gigabit Switch - GSM7328FS

    The last one is a beast! I aspire to getting one of them in my rack ready for when I have my fibres in all the places the need to be then we will have one decent network backbone

    I'll concurr with that - we have 2 buildings each with one of these as their core. Solid as a rock! They only have SFP fibre ports though (easily solved with £50 tranceivers from hardware.com)

    Yep another vote for the procurve, got a 5400 and the older 4200 series both are excellent & the 5400 will go 10gbit as well.
