So far the HP ProCurve 4000m is looking pretty good.  A pair of
half-populated units (J4121A) is less than the price of a fully
populated one.  CDW has them for US$45.72/port.  (Due to a HP promotion
currently running.)  VLAN (802.1q), IGMP, monitor port, SNMP, stackable,
CoS stuff, &c.  GbE ports (SX, LX, and 1000Base-T) are available for it. 
Some limitations, e.g., 8 MAC's per port in secure mode.

I use these for connecting my racks to core switches.  They don't pass
spanning tree traffic.  Their Gig Copper rocks though.

40 ports, $1829.... *WAY* overkill. We only need maybe 8 ports max!
