I'm looking to purchase a solid managed switch for my home network. It needs to be all gigabit and allow for vlan configurations as I'd like to segment my traffic (VM backups, storage server replication, video streaming, etc). Much of this is for testing/learning purposes but I'd also like to put it to good use to optimize my home network as I do use 2-3 VM's for in a "production" like manner. I don't think I need anymore more than 16-24 ports. I looking at the Cisco SG-200 series but that only allows for management through a web interface and I'd like to be able to use the CLI since I'm familiar with it.
