Why should one buy (or not) an Appliance-based security gateway?

Hi all,

A few colleagues and I started a discussion as to why one should or shouldn't buy an appliance-based firewall, ids/ips 
or other security appliance instead of installing software on a server. 

We thought about patching, performance, and other reason for each option but I'd like to hear what other people think.

I would really appreciate if you could share your thoughts with me.

Thanks in advance,
