Which of these would be good for a cluster?  Reliability is more
important here than speed, not that I'm looking for slow.  It should not
burn up if the jobs move data through all ports near full capacity for
hours or days at a time!

D-Link DGS-1024D 
SMC EZ Switch SMCGS24 
HP J9078A

The D-link and Netgear are within $10 of each other after the rebate on
the latter, both are about $60 less than the SMC and HP.
