It is all Ethernet you are just thinking 10Gbase-SR/DA Fiber/DAC SFP+ vs. 10Gbase-T Copper UTP/STP CAT5/6/7 RJ-45Whatchu talkin' bout Wilson? Heheh, Im Gary Oldman. But seriously, Whatever do you mean my good sir? Surely you jest. That's my job my good sir! Fiber is not Ethernet, Ethernet isnt Fiber. Have I entered the Twilight zone, or perhaps, The Scary Door?
...DAC is still copper...oh hohhhoohhh! Well excuse me guys....here i thought the switch was fiber/sfp+
Ok, ok, so yeah, yeah, the protocol is there. True, But.... the data is sent through light pulses not copper cabling....
I am currently using DACs.
Shit on a stick with rice and beans!
The funny thing is r2disassemblyllc and natex.us are the same people. So you should be rolling the dices the same at both the tables. Beware!!! And buying from natex.us isn't that good (5% discounts are not much). When the same stock hits eBay, you have the bargaining power.My offer of 275 + 25 shipping got accepted by the seller OP linked. I have the switch with me for a week now.
I order one great deal.UNIXSurplus.com has some of these in stock with rack ears for $349 if anyone needs one/some:
Quanta LB6M 10GB 24-Port SFP Switch QY139A Dual Power Supply, Rack Ears Included
Got this in an email blast earlier today...
