Switch with uplink port on opposite side of other ports

This is a bit of an odd question if you haven't guessed already from the title.  I am seeking a 5 or 8 port switch but with a catch.  The uplink port is on the back side with the power connector and the other ports are on the front.  Does such a thing exist?  Reason I ask is this would be something that would sit on a desk and from aesthetic prospective, have the power and uplink wires connect to the back to fish down the opening in the desk and the front connections used on demand.

Better yet, why not just mount the entire switch under the desktop, and route one or two cables up through the port?  Add a velcro strap or rubber band to hold them, and you'll just have the connectors visible when not in use.

Awesome thanks for finding that.  As for why not the under desk solution, I didn't want extra cables fished up and just sitting there since this won't be used too often, I felt the upside switch would be easier to manage.
