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.)
