Actually, it's more likely that they are simply used - in which case they are about 20% more expensive than they should be.

Cisco GBIC's format is industry-standard and interchangeable with HP, delmonte and green giant GBIC's - I had always assumed it was so with Nortel too, are you saying Nortel has proprietary GBIC's? (Cisco GigaStac GBIC's are proprietary - many manufacturers make special interface modules that fit the GBIC slot, but the regular tranceivers are always standardized - again, is this UNtrue for Nortel?)

If we could convince the Asian infrastructure that respectable English translations would be good for them and to hire US to do it, we could end up richer than Billy.

Again, he never said new, and it's not THAT great a price for used ones - I have purchased SX modules for $45 each on that mega online auction place.
>You offer sounds more like a scam than anything else!
Of course, here I am in complete agreement - the price IS good enough that he wouldn't need to be HERE trying to ply his wares.
