We use these to uplink to an ethernet port up too 3000ft away when we webcast events. Often times school gyms, field-houses or press-boxes wont have a network connection, so being able to long haul ethernet over fiber is a god-send.
Often times, the cheapest option is the obvious choice, but in this case I chose the next to cheapest I could find for two reasons; first I have used TrendNet equipment before and know that they have a talent for balancing reliability, performance and price, and second, the realtek chipset that drives this medi converter is capable of actively matching different network types, while the other model I considered could only pass them through.
The mix and match network conversion is the most important feature of this product, and one that is actually missing from many converters. What this means, is that you can match any 10/100/1000 wired network to any mini-gbic compliant SFP module, a 100m copper network to a 1.25g fiber module for instance, where many other converters would only let you go 1g copper to 1g fiber.

As far as performance goes, I've used these several times on 100m and gigabit copper networks with foundry and zyxel 1.25g and 4.25g SFP modules and they've performed like champs! We rarely have our gear set up for more than two days at a time, but any drops in connection would kill us, and we havent experienced any on the media converters.

I have four of these in operation. They were purchased on my employer's behalf by a third party purchasing agent. Initially I had the problem where the link would not come back up after a power outage. However, after reading through the manual I discovered that there is a switch inside the unit that is defaulted to auto-negotiate. If the switches in both units are set to force, the problem goes away. I am surprised that no one from Trendnet has informed users of this.

This goes for most if not all of Trendnet Gigabit media converters.

There are about 4 different H/W (hardware) versions of this device for the same model# TFC-1000MSC. The oldest ones being H/W version B1.1R which was discontinued about 2 years ago and is not as compatible with as many devices. The newest H/W version is C1.0R. The information from this specific product does not list a H/W version so buyers be aware of which one you are purchasing.

I've used these for years, but for whatever reason, have recently had some trouble with them after power drops. As others have reported, if the power drops on one or both ends of a link, sometimes (but not always), the link won't come back up again afterward. The fix is an incredible nuisance, but does at least seem to work reliably: You have to power off both ends of the link, *physically plug the ethernet cables on each end into different ports on your ethernet switch*, and then power things back up. I have no idea what could be happening, but apparently the switch's MAC address/port-mapping tables get scrambled in some way that they can't recover.

The other nuisance factor, also reported by others, is that the Link LED on either end only lights when the full link across the fiber has been established. So you could think your ethernet cable or switch port is bad when you don't get a Link indication, when it might actually just be that there's a problem on the fiber side.

I bought one more of these to have as a spare, any other Gigabit fiber paths I set up, I'll use something different.

Most of these media converters lock you into a fixed Ethernet speed of 100 or Gig-e. These don't, which is great. Assume you put a pair of these with a fiber in the middle - either Ethernet port on either end can be 100 or 1000 mb. Like an autosensing switch port. the TP-Links wouldn't do this - if one end is 100mb and the other is gig-e, it won't work. These will.

I can't speak for long term reliability of these (yet) - though I will if I have any problems.

Also, I like the way the screw loosens to remove the unit as card that can be placed into a rack unit with an optional dual-power supply. For a few more $ you can add an SMNP module to keep watch over them.

Another nice thing is the way the LEDs work - if there's a fault (either a down link, etc) a yellow light will appear. If everything is working, then it's green. So at a glance, you can see if there are any faults in a bank of them.

I'm using these with Mikrotik bi-directional SFP modules for single fiber links. Will update with reliability issues if I find as some of these will be out in the cold.

We used this converter to replace an old switch that was dying that had a fiber card in it. We were using a 10/100 HP ProCurve Switch 4000m. After swapping the switch with this device, the traffic restored seamlessly without any need for resetting any other devices. We had some concerns because of some of the other comments, so we did a few tests to the device to see how it effected the converter. We ran a continues ping and unplugged our switch, plugged it back in and connection was restored. We also unplugged the fiber cables to break the connection, and after plugging them back in the connection was restored. Finally, we unplugged the converter, and after plugging it back in, again, the connection was immediately restored. We also ran a ping overnight to test for any dropped packets, none were reported.

In conclusion, this seems to be a very good and reliable product, and the price is really good compared to other options out there.
