I understand that, but the NPE-G1 isn't available used generally and it's
out of the price range for the current project I'm working on new.

You might also want to take the NPE-G1 into consideration.  That's a real
great one - super fast, and comes with 3 onboard GigE interfaces.

Caveat: requires 12.1E or 12.2S, but 12.2S is well-beahving for us.

Caveat2: 12.2S has counter bugs.  But not-so-severe ones.
