I believe the 1800-24G is stackable, but the 1800-8G is not. Please correct me if I'm mistaken, but that is what I recall by looking at the details of these a few weeks ago.
Neither have a CLI (web interface only) and are read-only SNMP. But read-only SNMP is very nice if you only need it to monitor port traffic. The lack of the CLI kinda sucks though. If for some reason the web service crashed, it sure would be nice to have a backdoor to restart it or perform configurations without a pretty UI.
I'm still looking very strongly at the 1800 series though. I can get 2 for the price of one of the higher end models and if the web interface died on one, I could reboot it without downtime since all by servers have redundant NICs.
