You're looking for "managed" switches; the HP Procurve lineup, and  
the 3com SuperStack III models are also pretty decent.

$20 per port is about the lowest price-point for decent managed  
switches out there, and that goes up towards $40 or $50 per port if  
you want to have GBIC fibre or GB-over-copper switch uplinking or  
stacking capabilities; you start losing vital capabilities like  
individual port control & VLAN/trunking capabilities if you go  
cheaper....
