    I do not need routing on it.

    Been looking at the Microtik series at the moment, but open to anything.

    8 port SFP+ or 2-4 Port SFP+ with the rest being gigabit?

    If all you need is a basic L2 switch with 2x 10gb SFP+ ports, the Mikrotik CRS226 is nice, as soon as you start looking for much more you either have to know their interface/command line or you will want more in terms of speed and power.

    Do you have a budget? Quanta LB6M gives you 24 sfp+, and there are a few available on ebay around 1000$/ piece.

    Later edit: i don't see any 8+ sfp+ switches in mikrotik's lineup, what model were you talking about?

    You're right, I'm an idiot and thought they were sfp+ not just SFP.

    Stacked Netgear GSM7300s might do the trick...

    Mikrotik crs226 and 210 both have sfp+. We are trying to work out if you want 8 sfp+ ports or what you are asking..

    8 would be preferable. However, I could live with six.

    Not enough SFP+ :(

    I *Might* try to pick up two GSM7328Sv2 and stack them.

    If the dlink doesn't have enough SFP+ ports the GSM7328Sv2 won't either considering it has 0x SFP+ ports....

    Huh? The 24 port has 2 SFP+
    Everything I've read about the Quanta makes me believe the firmware is absolute garbage.

    S500X-8F8T but it sure isn't cheap. A couple of advantages though:
    • The 8F8T model also comes with 8 10GBASE-T ports for additional 1GE or 10GE copper twisted pair connectivity if needed.
    • The last two SFP+ ports can be used for switch stacking (where multiple switches act as one logical switch) to SG500X 24 or 48 port switches which you can find a deal on occasionally, or additional 8F8Ts. Since the additional switch(es) also have at least two SFP+ ports, you still have at least eight SFP+ total in the stack.

    Currently I've got my eyes on a Juniper EX3300-24T. It has 4x SFP+, and support for stacking. So far the best price I've found was new for $950.

    It's maybe not the same price, but why not going onto Gnodal GS4008 (40 SFP+ and 8 QSFP) ?
    I got mine for 1500$ (some have picked up for cheaper than that).

    The black point, it's the "zero-warranty" because Gnodal didn't exist anymore.

    Dell makes the X4012 it's 12 SFP+ only(it does come with a gigabit sfp module included though) they're like 1250 new.

    Be patient, sometimes good 10G SFP+ switches are available for under 1000 USD. If however noise is a factor, then I guess the Dell X4012 would be a good choice.
