1G switch?

SDGE had a scheduled power outage this weekend and on power up it never fails that something always fails. This time it was one of the Netgear 48 port switches. It's a simple 1Gb switch for administrative Macs but it's 10 years old. What's the current consensus for 1Gb 48 port switches with say a dozen POE ports? Don't need anything particularly fancy, just needs to be reliable.

Thanks for the recommendations--very much appreciated. So here's a stupid question: For this eBay HP Procurve[1], is an SFP port the only way to uplink to the firewall/router? I looked through the PDF manual and see assigning ports for Stacking switches or for a Trunk but nothing about uplink. Yes, it's been a long time since I've bought a switch...

Any port is an uplink port.  You already tell your machines how to route by defining a gateway address.
The firewall/router IP address is defined on the upstream device, and the switch will detect how to route to it, assuming everything is on the same VLAN.  Basically there is no defined uplink port, since you could run any number of VLANs and have any number of possible routes.

You can uplink from any port. Some 10/100 switches have a separate gigE "uplink" port, but in this case any port can be used as a so-called uplink. Ken Spickler Sent from iPhone.

eBay has been pretty good for getting cheap networking hardware that is still solid. I have a few friends with small shops and it's always my recommendation to them to save some coin and they have all been happy so far!

And you can afford to keep a couple of cold spares on the shelf for a fraction of the cost of a support contract.
