3G SDi parts becoming commodity?

My pals at Lindy (who I buy lots of computer connectivity parts from) sent me a bunch of engineering samples of 3G-capable SDi parts; DAs, fibre transceivers etc. from one of their OEM manufacturers in the Far East. For very modestly priced pieces they were excellent. The eye-pattern (above) is the output of their re-clocking DA. Whilst talking to them about the various measurements I made (which you'd only understand if you're a broadcast engineer) I recalled Tektronix's excellent SDi physical layer webinar and pointed the guys at it.
