I'm interested in buying a 48 port Gigabit switch as well, and I was
looking at the 2848 as it has the advantage of 48 ports in only 1U.
One thing that is not clear from the descriptions that I find on the 
net is if it has support for Jumbo frames. Does the documentation that 
come with it mention something like this or, even better, have you 
tried using Jumbo frames ?

I'm also interested in hearing opinions about other 48 ports Gigabit
