I've got a Netgear FS526T (24 port Fast Ethernet, 2 port GBit Ethernet, Layer 2 switch,
~170 EUR) which is doing okay so far. It has web interface with switch sttus, IP
access list, port configuration, packet statistics, VLAN, trunking, monitor,

It's an unremarkable performer; haven't made any stress testing though. 

I'm looking into buying a HP ProCurve 2650 (a Level 3, 48 ports + 2 GBit),
which seems to sell for about ~730 EUR.

Any negative/positive opinions on this particular product? IIRC HP ProCurve
line is generally well regarded in the community.
