The MX204 is pretty hard to beat. It fits well as a peering/transit
router, as well as a Metro-E router where you need a 100Gbps ring to
carry 10Gbps customers, as well as downstream cheaper routers that will
do sub-10Gbps quite nicely.

That said, at least for the Metro, I still believe a lighter version of
the MX204, with dense 1Gbps capability, is still needed. Been asking
since 2007.
