So over the past 3 months, I had 3 failures on SFP+ modules. Seems high to me…after the second one failed, I bought 5 spares. At about $15 a pop after tax, they’re not exactly cheap enough to be tossing one every month… Has anyone had similar experiences with used ebay SFP+ module? Should I just stay away from used modules and buy new? Any recommendations for replacement modules or are the models I have decent?
Is there an easy way to test a suspected failed module? I haven’t recycled the modules that failed yet in hopes that maybe they weren’t bad.

Also I’m not entirely opposed to DAC cables… Just the way the rack is setup, they would be a real pain to run right now…plus I don’t currently have any
