The Finisar FTR1619-55.

My experiense is that buying directly from the manufacturer is taking a 
chance, it's much cheaper, but you get great variance in quality and you 
should really do testing on the gbics, or be prepared to swap gbics in 
case you get problems.

Buying from the switch vendor ensures that you do not get finger-pointing 
and they do test the gbics more than the manufacturer.
