How to Use an Ethernet Switch with AirPort Express

I have more wired Ethernet devices then there are LAN ports on the AEBS. Is there any trouble in connecting a layer 2 gigabit Ethernet switch to one of these ports to expand the number of available ports? If no problem is there a recommended/preferred quality switch to use? I didn't see any gigabit Ethernet switches at my friendly Apple store.
