    UBNT just emailed the official launch of the 16XG, so I guess they are out of beta..!
    There is a Dutch supplier announcing they will have them on stock on the 29th of January.

    I think its interesting that they exited Beta without fixing the 10Gbase-T problems. The current firmware still does not set up correctly with newer embedded 10Gbase-T chipsets.

    The DAC issues are annoying, but they never really said it works with anything but their optics so I'll give them a pass (sorta). But the 10Gbase-T part is a baseline capability that doesn't work right. Bad idea to leave Beta and launch with that issue outstanding.

    Agreed that it makes no sense to GA with that major issue still open. They are putting themselves in a situation where it will be difficult to succeed. They did it with AirVision/Unifi Video as well. Hopefully things get sorted quicker than that product line did.

    Could be they are putting out a new firmware just before they are available.

    This seems very likely. Maybe they'll surprise us with an amazing new firmware on launch day. You know.. The stuff that makes doves cry.

    Opened a topic on it on their beta forum.
    Wouldnt it be nice to give ubiquiti feedback on testing results there, so they can see there are still lots of issues for a lot of users ?

    LOL, that'd be the whole point typically of a beta release/community hah

    Kinda surprised that no one has done that yet w/ all the dac/10G-T issue reported/encountered...hell maybe it has already happened but you adding a new post can't hurt.

    It's definitely been mentioned of their forums already.

    Also someone brought up this very same concern about releasing with these compatibility issues. This was the response:

    "Those are all firmware issues that will be fixed and don't impact the majority of users."

    Totally makes sense and you have to give them the benefit of the doubt if they have a 'buy our DAC's or have a validated/supported list of DAC's/optics...if they are just leaving it to the community to test out and play 'guinnea pigs' then that is weak.

    Fortunately I've found DACs that work for me and don't need the copper so I have the luxury of time to wait for fixes. Fingers crossed it's all good. Certainly I'm getting my moneys worth out of them, although I might be more upset if I paid $600 each.

    Same basically for me...
    But what i think is bad, is that you release a new line GA, knowing there's still a lot of issues with it.

    Why then beta test ?

    Will the ones from the beta be able to accept the official firmware release? I remembered reading somewhere that they wouldn't and they were only for beta and that's it.

    I just read from Ubnt forum (answered by the employee) saying that Beta and GA hardware has the same. So I believe that the beta hardware should be able to accept any future update.
