I Have an RB4011 and while it does work very well for the price it is not really practical for the sort of people who don't reside on this list. Firstly the single 10G port means you have to connect it via a separate 10G switch and then vlan the external connection to the ONT via another switch port. Secondly the physical format is great for those of us who love the idea of a passive cooling rack mount device but not so much the stick it on a shelf masses. Thirdly the interface has way too many knobs for anyone who does not know what MPLS stands for.

Funny, that's the very unit I recommended as well in my previous post to Brandon :-).

As reasonably-priced devices that will have half decent working code go (for 10Gbps, no less), it's hard to beat the Tik.

I'd still never use them in production, but for home CPE's, you bet I would.
