I can't say why cisco charges so much for the PA-2FE, but the CX-FEIP-2TX
is cheap because it's ancient (EOL'd some time ago) and probably not
capable of running both ports at line-rate anyway.  Don't buy them unless
you're hooking up very low traffic LANs.  Your best bet is PA-FE's and
enough VIP2-50's for the number of PA-FE's you need.

Also, watch out for PA-2FEISL-TX's.  They're also not capable of handling 
both interfaces at line-rate.  That's why they're available for just a few 
hundred $.
