Heyo I got a Zyxel XGS1210-12 from a friend. Does anyone know a cheapish compatible transceiver that would work?

OP has this switch https://www.zyxel.com/us/en/products_services/12-Port-Web-Managed-Multi-Gigabit-Switch-with-2-Port-2-5G-and-2-Port-10G-SFP--XGS1210-12/ and he wants to connect the 10G SPF+ port to with 10G-BaseT RJ45 port or adapter.

So he will need a 10G SFP+ to RJ45 transceiver.

Recommended by the users who respond below Amazon's product page https://www.amazon.com/12-Port-Gigabit-Managed-Multi-Gig-XGS1210-12/dp/B084MH9P8Q

Yep, these transceivers are expensive.

The other problem is, there are brand compatibility issues between SFP+ NIC (in this case, his Zyxel 10G SFP+ port) and transceivers.

OP better ask / consult with Zyxel what products they recommend.

This looks like it is a Wiitek SFP-10G-T that is designed to be compatible with the Zyxel switches (just rebranded and given the proper encoding for compatibility):


The Wiitek is pretty much still the best performing transceiver:


I can't be 100% positive that it is a rebranded Wiitek, but given OEM part numbers, specs, and price, it certainly looks like it.
