    3rd Party SFP's

    I need some 10G Calix SFP's. Calix wants $400 for single mode 10G SFP. I found some 3rd party ones for $44. What is the general consensus on 3rd party SFP's? I'd hate to have one of these be the cause of problems or be the cause for Calix to blame a problem on one. But the price is very tempting.
