Basically looking for some Pro's and Con's on these if anyone have ever used them. Having trouble locating any reviews.

Also, on LC connections, which thread handles send, and which receive?

Any guidance would be greatly appreciated.

The answer is both on both.   When one side sends on a given cable, the other end is receiving (well listening).   Sometimes they both send at the same time, depending on the specifics of the protocol, so they have to do some handshaking to agree on who talks.   (I'm sparing you all the tech terms so this is oversimplification)

You need to know whether you are doing single or multimode, and distance and desired speed to determine which is best for you.   Then you need to make sure that the transceiver(s) are compatible with your gear.   One can't just mix and match and expect things to work properly.   The SC vs LC connection is least of your worries.
