If I was to be judging Netgear by the Netgear stuff in my old place, its not too bad.
Warranty is not too bad, but my god its a nightmare when you need to get something fixed or replaced on warranty!

As with everything you get what you pay for ( or not as the case may be )

Personally if anywhere is going to switch from Cisco the next big players I'd go to would either be HP or Juniper. Both beat Cisco on price of course!

Juniper would be my first choice for any switch now...CLI is much nicer than Cisco and HP, GUI is nicer than both, and IMO it works better than both!

Did see extreme networks mentioned somewhere on EG - think they are meant to be quite good as well ??
Switching Products - Extreme Networks

Ah, but you're in the land of "Wait, Australia? Set price gouging to Ludicrous Mode."

I'm just in the process of changing my LAN from Netgear to either HP or Juniper, awaiting final bits and bobs to be confirmed but hoping we will become a Juniper place from after Half Term. The netgear has served us well, however they have not been keeping up in the edge switching and the forward thinking angles IMHO.
They now have a Chasis switch, great, however its just a re-spray of an Extreme, which is good news as that kit is bulletproof, but the cost is majorly high, and they don't have any edge kit to go with it IMHO. So we will see what happens going forth, we will either be HP or Juniper, Cisco have priced themselves out of the project, so we will see. I am still awaiting the quote for Extreme actually, there is one on the way so will be interesting to see what that looks like
