Pros We have several Sonicwall devices in our network and this fit in perfectly. The speed was good and security first rate. We were able to get it to work with the rest of our devices in just a few minutes.
Cons None that I can think of.
Summary This product is not for a novice or someone who has not worked before with corporate firewalls. This isn't Linksys! Anyone familiar with Sonicwall will enjoy working with it. I would not suggest getting this for home use or if you're unfamiliar with configurations. I love the granular approach they take to making things work. If your entire technical education has come from youtube don't buy this product.

Pros Was working OK with a lot of help from tech support to do anything beyond what the wizards will do.
Cons Overly complex, finally non functional.
Summary Requires multiple settings in various places to do much of anything, and if you're not thoroughly familiar with the product, you'll either waste scads of time or need to call tech support. But worse, it started blocking important sites and services on its own with no way to change that behavior. Then it started throwing trace information when simply trying to do a packet capture. Had to replace it with something that worked in order to continue in business. I would avoid this product and the company as a whole.OOPS, please ignore the above. It turned out there were browser incompatibilities between Chrome and the SonicWall web interface. You'll still probably need support if you're not a network admin, but their support is low cost (free 90 days and then $70/year)
