Mikrotik (CRS305-1G-4S+IN) with 4 SPF ports costs 120 eur~
This one with only 2 SFPs costs 3 times more? And this one doesn't have PoE on the 2.5gig ports as far as i can see, so it can't justify its costs.

The 2T model is all copper.
The 2S is only US$145/€119.
They have a bigger model with PoE, but they haven't announced the pricing as yet.

I have the QNAP QSW-1105-5T 5-Port Unmanaged 2.5GbE Switch and paid $109. Works really great for my LAN over existing CAT 5e cabling.

Thanks for the model references and pricing. Guess only the 1GbE portion of my LAN will be 'managed'. Unmanaged multigig switches are actually in my budget.
