He he… 1m doesn't buy you much in a server room, so we're using almost 
only 540-T2 over Cat6 and we never had a problem under Solaris or OmniOS.
I'd always choose the Intel 10GbEs over all other brands. I've had 
horrible issues with Broadcom-based NICs in my Dells and they will have 
to prove their reliability to a load of other people first, before I 
will even consider, buying those again… but, I guess so will other do as 
well. ;)
