Purchasing XR700

I got a few questions before I decide to purchase XR700.

1. Does it come with a SFP transceiver?

2. If not, which brand of SFP transceiver is compatible with XR700?

3. Not product specific, but are there any differences between different brand of SFP transceivers aside from compatibility?

Does not come with a SFP receiver. 


Do a search here in this for on SFP and you'll many posts in regards to what some users have for SFP receivers.

After about a week of use this thing has been working as it should. I especially like how it is compatible with the Netgear NightHawk XR700. Netgear does not list this SFP+ on there website of compatibility, but from what I have seen it works without question flawlessly. Make sure to reboot all the hardware once installed.
