Yes, the switching fabric and forwarding rate is higher on the newer switches.  Check out the phone matrix I uploaded, I think you will be happy with that.

The main differences are as follows


SG = Gigabit 10/100/1000

SF = Fast Ethernet 10/100


200 Series = L2 switch

300 Series = L3 Switch


You can have an SG200 or SG300 switch. Same as SF200 or SF300.

NP and the 200 series SG switches are probably the best value for the money because SMB does not really make use of L3 routing, which the 300 series provides.
