RE-800 are so slow that I've had numerous instances where I've made a 
change, banged my head on the desk for several minutes trying to figure 
out why it isn't working, and then realize that the control plane was 
still thinking about it.  It will take full tables though, barely, and 
eventually.  Imagine the RE-1800s are fine, haven't used one personally. 
  C-FEB-E should have plenty of room for your FIB.

What's the application?  I'll throw a somewhat oddball option out there 
- you can fit full tables into RIB on many Juniper EX switches.  Limited 
use cases for sure, but it can be handy if you can limit what's 
installed into FIB.
