Juniper M120 Alternatives

Having slightly lost track of what everybody is using for peering routers
these days, what is the consensus about the best alternative to Juniper M
series routers?

I'm asking as the prices to upgrade to 10Gbit capable Juniper units (ie.
an M120) seem prohibitively high so I'm looking to get a feel for the
alternatives. The other obvious platform would appear to be a Cisco XR
12404 (or similar depending on line card requirements) but is anything
else in common use as a peering platform?

Cheers for any input.
