Thank you for the information.  Actually, having done some more searching, our 
budget could probably also stretch to getting a Cisco SG350X-48 switch instead 
of the Netgear.  Like the Netgear, it apparently features 48 1000Base-T ports 
plus two 10GBASE-T/SFP+ combo ports + 2 10GbE SFP+ ports.  So, port-wise, the 
same as the Netgear, but likely better firmware-wise/support.  (I have 
experience with the firmware of the Cisco SG350-28 model and really like its 
feature set.)
