    The Ubiquiti Edgeswitch 48 Lite might also be worth including:
    Else I guess the LB4M might still be worth mentioning.

    Excuse my ignorance, but those microtiks don't seem to mention that the SFP+ is 10Gig - how do you know they are?

    @RTM added ES-48-Lite

    Should the LB4M get added? Seems like it's in a different class of switch?

    @Krailor great point. Added that one.

    Would be nice if we could test these too.

    Is this even a useful thread?

    Nice thread.

    Should switches that have optional 10 GbE expansion be listed?

    Great thread.

    Other ideas: redundant power supplies, airflow direction and power consumption. Going out and buying all of them to test is a bit above the STH budget.

    BTW the Dell X1052 is their new 48 port 1GbE + 4x 10Gb SFP+ switch for $639 on their homepage. A good sale or once they start turning up used they will be under $550 for sure.

    To add to the feature creep I'd want to know if they support stacking or VPC.

    I was thinking the exact same thing as the modules are scary priced by themselves and it seems someone is already doing this as there have been a few up for grabs, without modules, for $50 when the norm is ~$90.

    Avaya/Nortel 5530-TFD (layer 3 switch/router)
    1Gbe - 12
    1GBe/SFP dual-personality - 12
    10Gb XFP - 2
    130w PSU

    A bit of an odd duck with the XFP ports but can be picked up for under $300 on ebay.
