    I've had good experience with Fiberstore.com for sfp+ transcievers and cables for this switch.

    Do they have a specific one for the switch or is it just one of the other types?

    There is now a "public" 1.7.1beta1 firmware out for this switch that massively improves SFP+ compatibility and fixes all the 10Gbase-T problems I've seen on it as well. I am now running mine with various old 0.5-3m Cisco, Supermicro and newer generic FS.com DAC cables, as well as some various 1 and 10G optics (mostly generic FS.com but some others) - all working.

    All you have to do is enable beta access on your account (by accepting a ToS) and then it is available to download.

    Hopefully we will see this for the Unifi switch soon.

    Is there somewhere we can get a consolidated list of 3rd party SFP+ modules this thing supports at various firmware levels? Just bought one and while I'm pleasantly surprised at the cost of UBNT's own fiber modules, I'd really like to get some 3rd party 10g copper for this thing, something UBNT lacks. And yes, the four copper ports on the switch will be filled right away.

    The latest alpha firmware has fixed a lot of the SFP+ compatibility issues. There are still problems with the 4 copper ports. Mine frequently drops to 1g. Have to reset the switch to get back 10g speeds.

    Since the alpha there have been a beta relase and a rc1. Tried the rc1 with regards to the copper port issues yet?

    FWIW on my two units the copper ports seems to work fine with my particular 10GBase-T link partners. All my Xeon-D related 10Gbase-T issues were fixed in the first alpha.

    I haven't tried the beta or RC1. I will do the upgrade and check it out. I am using it with 2 xeon d boards as well and have issues with port 13 and 14 in the alpha.
