a 16-port 460t lists for $830US. a 24-port 460t lists for $1110US.
cheaper out of the box as well as cheaper per port, or did i miss something?

what price are you finding for a cisco3548?

it appears allied telesyn has a 24-port fully managed switch for $740
(AT-8126XL-10), as well as a 16-port model (AT-8118), and although
i'd be surprised if port monitoring weren't a feature, the a-t website
doesn't seem to specifically mention it.
