We're utilizing the Sonicwall devices for our SOHO customers. We're not a dealer we're an application var and merely bundle the firewalls to save everyone headaches. The users find the interface easy to use. Most sonicwall models handle ipsec aes 256 3des & des vpn site to site and of course Sonicwall sells a software based single user clients. (boo) All models handle multiple lan subnets.
Unfortunately the fact remains that most of the SOHO decision makers out there bristle at spending a lot of money on security. (insert 'you'll be sorry comments here')
The down side on Sonicwall are the addons. You buy a device then in 90 days you need to purchase a warranty addon in order to download firmware updates. And so on & so on. The subscription services they are offer (av,ips, & filtering) are a bit privcy but are nice if one can talk a customer into buying them.
