Right now I'm looking at two switches, SMC-EZ1016 and SMC-EZ1024 (latter
24-porter $229 according to Pricewatch). They're advertised as being
unmanaged, respective 5.2/6.8 Gbps backplane, 4K MAC table,

I plan to use them for a residential (interbuilding) LAN, mostly because
of their (optional) fiber uplink capability.

Is there anything good or bad to be said about these? Any suggestions for
(unmanaged or managed) switches with GBit fiber uplinks, and according
GBit optical switches? (Apart from the HP ones, I mean).
