Yep, we have a 24-port gigabit Bay Networks/Nortel PoE at the NY office. The web interface is a little clunky, but it was pretty cheap (sub-$100, 3 or 4 years ago). There's starting to be lots of good PoE Cisco and HP ProCurve stuff available online as well -- my new (to me) switch even has 10gig slots.

I've pretty much always ran on corporate cast-offs, after discovering that comparable equipment cost less than buying stuff at the local computer places. The only trouble is, some of the 1U switches can be pretty loud.
