    I am planning to get some new cables for a 40G setup. And see that on Ebay I can find QSP28 cables for 100G for about the same price as ordinary QSFP+ cables. I guess that the improved QSP28 DAC cables would work, but could anyone confirm that?

    Ebay has introduced tax for many states, what todo if you use a service like shipitto to ship to EU?

    I see that everything I buy on Ebay comes with tax now, this is a ~10% additional expense for me. I use a service called JetCarrier that ships to Norway, which gives me a US address . With this address, buying stuff from Ebay has been a great experience. Now I would like to avoid paying this...
