I've used them all fairly heavily, except the Foundry gear.
personal fave. Biggest problem with the F5: hard drive. In my book,
that means you instantly need two, doubling the price.
Same thing with the Cisco CSS. Even without a hard drive, you should have 2
of them anyway. How do you plan to do software upgrades or other certain
types of maintenance without an outage if you don't have a second one?
I've seen them flake out too, either by not passing traffic or by load
balancing getting messed up somehow. In most of these situations, a
failover to the standby unit fixed the problem (this was with F5 gear).
