I have standardized on HP Procurves for all of my managed switches.  
You might find one in your price range. They are rock solid, have a  
fantastic warranty and give pretty good bang for the buck.

I have actually bought a few off ebay to get them even cheaper. Just  
be very careful to read the fine print. Make sure it is a managed  
switch (I usually double check the model on the HP website to be  
sure). Also make sure you are not bidding on damaged equip. I almost  
won a dead switch that had been through a flood. Thankfully, someone  
else who didn't read the find print out bid me in the last minute.
