Switches... 24 or 48 ports?
As above, if you were speccing switches which would you go for? Basically we're getting the HP 2610 series, originally thought 48s as we have now with another brand but was advised to get 24s instead.
What it kinda comes down to I guess would be...
- noise... 24 ports are silent but 48s have a fan, will soon see how much noisier
- cable management... easier with 24 ports
- switch throughput, per 1GB link into it?
Any other ideas as I'm still a bit torn which to go for...
