Well, for the price of a single Juniper GE-PIC, you get 3 GEs from
Cisco, plus a full router coming with it...

If you need full line rate on more than one GE - for the price of two
GE-PICs, you can get a 7603 with Sup720 and 10 ports GE, and run line rate 
on all of them.

While $J builds nice routers, the interface modules are just too expensive
if all you need is LAN cards.
