I don't mind having a switch in my "busy" rooms (office, server, and media), but one less device would be nice. Take that saved money and invest in a bitchin' managed switch to cover the whole house.
it's intriguing how much money the OP spent to have all those wires laid out, marked, fastened etc...
knowing the OP is in CT, it might be a good sum....if I remember correctly, when I had my house built, the low voltage guy was charging me somewhere $50-75 i think per cable run in addition to what the bldg. plans called for.
