Categories > Network Transceivers > STARTECH > StarTech.com Gigabit Ethernet Single Mode Fiber Media Converter SC 40 km - 1000 Mbps

Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5 Simple deployment, strong performer
Pros: Cost effective, transparent gigabit Ethernet over fiber extension. Literally plug and play. Successfully deployed in a 1.75Km setup in a matter of minutes.
Cons: Only con I could think of, is that the included power supply / transformer seems like the weakest link. An upgraded power supply would be appreciated.

Categories > Network Transceivers > Intel > Intel E10GSFPSR Ethernet SFP+ SR Optics

Rating + 1Rating + 1Rating + 1Rating + 1Rating + 1 Not the Intel SFP+ SRs I've gotten before - May be impossible to remove without breaking
Pros: They work, if you can get them inserted.

I've worked with plenty of SFP+ modules in the past. These are definitely hard to insert.
Cons: These are *not* the same mechanical design as Intel has used in the past.

These have a plastic bail rather than a metal bail - and that bail is not sufficiently strong; it breaks when trying to remove the module from the slot on the NIC.

These are extremely difficult to get into the SFP+ slot - One has to squeeze the sides with needlenose pliers to get them to seat.

Getting them back out is nearly impossible - the plastic wire bale that one normally uses to pull them out breaks off. I had to grap it with pliers and pry with a screwdriver to get it loose. In previous models that bail was metal and was much stronger.

The part number on the physical module is AFBR-703SDZ-IN2

(The part number on good, older ones is FTLX8571D3BCV-IT)

I've worked with plenty of SFP+ modules in the past. These are definitely exceptionally hard to remove without causing damage.

Categories > Network Transceivers > TRENDnet > TRENDnet TEG-MGBS10 Single Mode Fiber Mini-GBIC Modules Duplex LC connector

Rating + 3Rating + 3Rating + 3Rating + 3Rating + 3 Not compatible in Cisco Catalyst IOS switches
Pros: Good cheap SFP.
Cons: Not compatible in Cisco Catalyst IOS switches.
Other Thoughts: The switches that everyone says (in reviews on other sites) that these are Cisco compatible in are Cisco's SMB Line (basically rebranded Linksys), not their enterprise (IOS) grade switches. IOS switches reject the module because they fail validation, and go into err-disable state. Even when using the commands to ignore the fact that it isn't a Cisco SFP, it still won't bring up he port (not to mention flood your syslog server with SFP validation CRC failure errors), it just stays in notconnect state.

These units work just fine in other brand switches, I have used them before (Netgear M4100 series, D-Link, TP-Link, Linksys, etc)

I had 2 different orders of these which had build dates of 6 months apart, both of them act the same way in multiple switches (Catalyst 3650/3750/3750X/2960/2950)

Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5 Easy to install and use
Pros: -Inexpensive
-Easy to install
-worked in my Cisco Linksys switches out of the box.
Cons: Nothing so far, working as expected.
Other Thoughts: If you need an inexpensive fiber connection between network closest these will do just fine. Works as expected. Bought 6 to connect to remote closet to the main data room. Install in no time and have been working great.

Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5 SMB Use
Pros: These a very inexpensive but not actually cheap in quality. No lost packets and able to get full throughput over them (99% utilization). They simply work and work well.
Cons: I had only one fail on me in all my use of them. That was after almost 2 years.
Other Thoughts: Absolutely recommend these for Home or SMB use.
