ok well it's at 97.81 now on amazon so those wanting to get in on the newegg deal (even without the 1.5% cb from gcr) should get on it quick

While we're on this thread , any thoughts on valid alternatives?

Specifically, I'm asking about POE switches (not necessarily managed )

This and POE switch are a world apart. I did get this one for a good deal though, $169

It's been pretty solid, powering a bunch of unifi APs

It shouldn't even congest other clients on the switch... the only traffic in your example should be between the PC and NAS since it's only between the MAC addresses learned from those two ports, so any other ports communicating would be unaffected - they advertise it as non-blocking so they claim every port can run at the rated 1Gb/s capacity.

A good switch should be able to do gigabit between every port simultaneously.
The only time it'll touch the rest of the network is if multiple clients on one switch are trying to communicate with multiple clients on a different switch since all traffic is going through a single port.
But inter switch should be full speed.

How many ports?

I have a GS108PEv3 which I think is a good balance of POE and price.
It's only 4 POE ports though.

I don't remember where I bought it or for how much but I remember buying it because it was ridiculously cheap for a POE switch.
It looks like it's just a bit south of $100 now which I think is still fairly decent
