I am looking to purchase a pair of gigabit managed switches which are a capable of 802.1q vlan trunking.
I have a budget of £800-£1000 is this realistic for a pair of reasonable quality switches either new or refurbished.

Any model numbers that i can search ebay etc for would be useful or where to buy in the uk.

Many Thanks
