We also have very good experience with 6500/Sup720-3B. We have a dozen
or so acting as PE units. We've had no problems with them, using SXF for
several years. We don't use NAT though. Just MPLS L3VPN and port based
EoMPLS. Steady as rocks, even/especially the old ones (HW rev 2.1).

Much better experience with these than 7600s with SRB{,1} regarding
"just working" with a simple setup. :-)
