Netgear GS108 alternatives? Mine keep dying.

I've had two of these switches fail in the same manner in the last 6 months. They ran fine for a couple years, but it seems like this model is known for experiencing capacitor failure
. I know I could try and jump through the hoops of the Netgear "Limited Lifetime" warranty, but I'd rather just switch to a more reliable model. Can somebody recommend a different unmanaged gigabit switch, based on long-term experience and preferably a larger installation? I want reliability foremost, but improved power efficiency would also be a plus.
