Are there any major performance differences between the ToughSwitch POE and the EdgeMax Lite? I'm designing an installation where it would be nice to have a EdgeMax, but not mandatory, so I would definitely go with one or the other if there is a major performance/latency difference.

ToughSwitch POE is a Switch http://www.ubnt.com/downloads/datasheets/toughswitch/TOUGHSwitch_PoE_DS.pdf
EdgeMax Lite is a Router http://www.ubnt.com/downloads/datasheets/edgemax/EdgeRouter_Lite_DS.pdf
Switch != Router

I completely understand the differences. I'm thinking I might use the router for traffic shaping, but I could do it somewhere else so I'd rather use the switch if there's a big difference.

If you are looking to bridge the ports on the ERL to use it as a switch you will take a huge loss in performance. I've seen it shown/discussed as possibly being reduced to as little as 100mbps.

Looking at them again today, I guess the one I was thinking of was only 10/100 (the first one listed here). The third one in this list is 10/100/1000 and is only $54. I'm sure a little looking around will yield better pricing. I like this company. They are local to my work and I've dealt with them for 20ish years. It was my sales rep here who turned me onto Ubiquiti in the first place.
Sometimes lowest price isn't the best deal. There's also something to be said for having a rep that you can walk in and punch in the face. Just kidding. My rep's a great guy and I throughly enjoy doing business with him.
