I used them extensively at PIPE, they worked quite well. Just don't try to use them in 2 gig Fibre channel switches.

From an operational perspective, standardise on having the headend / core switch using one type (D or U) and all the aggregation / CPE using the other type. This takes away the guess work when another staff member goes to maintain the setup.
