oh ok. I know there were a couple people trying to get this to work. I think my brother might have a few finistars I can try to get my hands on. Can be useful for perhaps a small hp business pc and a pcie x1 single port sfp card? PCI Express Gigabit Ethernet Fiber Network Card w/ Open SFP - PCIe SFP Network Card Adapter NIC (Startech kills me with their pricing though) Im curious as to what kind of setups you guys have that require 1gb sfp's? Wondering if it might be better to just get a 8 port gigabit sfp switch?
