How about the best of both ? (1)

I think for up to 8 gigabit ports, the upcoming Ubiquiti EdgeMax / EdgeMax Pro is a winner.
I comes ready to go, but the software is Debian Linux, so we don't need to trust Cisco/Juniper/...
If you can get by with 3 gigabit port (using VLAN switches you could run 1 gigabit port + 20 fast ethernet ports using just the base router), there's the EdgeMax Lite (has been commercially available for about one year).
The EdgeMax e EdgeMax Pro are essentially the same (the Pro has two combo SFP/Copper ports + 6 pure copper, while the base has 8 copper ports).
Ubiquiti has stated it should be available this month, but I wouldn't plan on purchasing it until feb/march 2014 just to be safe.
