3 out of 5 eggsGood Security but quirky interface

Pros: The ASA 5505 is the successor to the PIX 500 series Cisco security appliances with additional features. The ASA 5505 offers a lot of security for a moderate price. Cisco equipment is designed for professionals and as such Cisco assumes a lot and is anything but consumer friendly. This is not a useful operating philosophy for small to medium business looking for IT security.

Setting up the unit via Cisco software can be a real PITA as noted by many other reviewers. If you're not an IT pro you may be forced to hire a pro to install this appliance properly. Cisco support will cost you as much as the unit.

Cons: It's amazing Cisco insists on being so difficult to work with as they are always looking to charge for support and licenses, etc. in addition to premium prices for all of their hardware. This ASA 5505 states wired speeds of 10/100/1000 Mbps. It is NOT 1000 Mbps speed contrary to the misleading product overview.

Other Thoughts: This Newegg offered ASA 5505 appliance specifications show 256 MB of RAM and 64 MB flash. According to Cisco they discontinued shipping this model with those sizes of RAM/Flash in 2010. So it's possible these are really old units if this is true. The cost to upgrade the RAM/Flash to the current 512 MB and 128 MB, costs almost as much as the entire ASA 5505 appliance. The 512/128 MB RAM/Flash are required to upgrade to the latest requirements.

2 out of 5 eggsVery outdated software included

Pros: I've always liked Cisco, and this device does work for the most part for my intended purpose of linking a remote site via VPN to our primary corporate site.

Cons: The device comes with VERY outdated software. For a purchase made in November 2014, mine came with ASA version 8.2(5) which was released May 23, 2011. The included CD has 8.3(1) which was released March 8th, 2010 (yes, earlier, go figure. All that info is here on Cisco.com: http://www.cisco.com/c/en/us/support/security/asa-5500-series-next-generation-firewalls/products-release-notes-list.html).

In my opinion, it should have come with 9.3(1) which was released in July 2014, 4 months prior to the purchase date. I understand if Cisco cannot put that CD in the box, because it is possible Newegg stocked prior to that date, but Cisco should allow buyers to download the latest software within the first 90 days of purchasing the device. I've scoured the Cisco website, and they clearly state that a valid support contract is required. Which brings me to my second beef.... No support other than "Community" support via the forums is supported. My particular ASA has an issue with not properly recognizing the local-host count. I have 4 physical hosts with 4 unique MAC IDs behind the ASA, but when you do a "sh local-host" it says there are 10 at some times, other times I check it says there are 7 or 8. I scoured the web and upgrading to a new ASA version should remedy this, but since that is not an option for me, I'm stuck with a heavy paper weight.

Other Thoughts: I actually have two ASA5505s that are identical. I have a 5540 at the primary site and a 5510 at the disaster recovery site. The 5540 and 5510 do not exhibit any of these issues. So I would advise staying away from the 5505.

1 out of 5 eggsDo NOT Purchase

Pros: None

Cons: The worse IT purchase I have made in 30-years. Could not access the console with Putty or any other terminal software. Took days to get into the "archaic" ASDM. Finally achieved success by installing an outdated JAVA Development Package. It would not accept anything else. Contacted CISCO support during this process and they wanted to charge me $$ just to talk to tech support even though it was under warranty. That was the last straw -- it's boxed up and ready to ship back to Newegg. This will be the last CISCO purchase I make.

Other Thoughts: Newegg also has Netgear units that compete head to head with CISCO. Installed their product today; had a configuration issue; contacted support; got help within 15-minutes "NO HASSLES"

5 out of 5 eggsNo Problems, Good ASA

Pros: Working with ASA 5505 for the past few years they are straightforward and effective firewalls and this was no different. The unit comes with the standard settings and IOS ver 8.2 with 512 MB of RAM which is good as when upgrading to IOS 9.1 512 MB of ram is required.

Cons: USB Flash ports are still listed as for "FUTURE USE" and cannot be used for IOS upgrading. Must setup FTP server to upload IOS. Also, unit was listed as Gigbyte connections but all ASA 5505's are only 100 MB ports.

5 out of 5 eggsPerfect for the small office

Pros: For a small office you can't go wrong. The GUI can be hard to understand for the beginner, but command line is also available. With a little knowledge of IOS you can have it running in no time. You can get it working out the box by reading the instructions.

Cons: Licenses can be hard to understand for the novice. There are different licenses so that you don't buy more than you need. Load balancing, 3DES, AES, AnyConnect Essentials, AnyConnect Premium. Who would know how to sort it out without some pretty good research.

The warranty is short, but a service contract is available for a small amount. This gives you software updates, support and device replacement.

Only supports 10/100 and not gig. Cisco needs to update this.

Other Thoughts: This device will do most of the things that it's bigger brothers will do, only on a smaller scale. If you want a nice little office firewall with site to site and remote access capabilities you can't go wrong.

4 out of 5 eggsHate When Ignorant Buyers Give Good Products Bad Reviews

Pros: Cisco.

Cons: Device is starting to show age as it only supports 100 Mb/s. It might not be a problem if you are able to route all you traffic through 1G switches and routers at a level below this unit. If a lot of LAN traffic needs to pass through this device; for instance if you were using this device to separate servers and workstations into two different subnets, flow between the DMZ and the LAN could be bottle necked.

Other Thoughts: *** Please do not listen to Prem S. review. He does not know what he's talking about. Typical office owner that doesn't want to spend the money for professional IT and wants to DIY. In an office of 30 employees there is really no excuse for this. This will allow than more than 10 users on your LAN. What it won't allow is more than 10 users connected directly to this device. Placing a small router capable of DHCP and NAT address translation avoids the issues Prem S. speaks of. 10,000 simultaneous sessions should be more than enough for almost any small office... 50 employees or less to be really safe.

3 out of 5 eggs

Pros: it has all the cool features of a commercial grade firewall for $350-$400. ACL, HTTP/protocol inspections, regular expression filters, I mean i can sit here all day explaining this thing, its like a rocket ship. I had a lot of excitement picking this ASA5505 up, and all the features were really cool, I had the high security template applied to it once, and it wouldn't let me go to any website that was like a huge corporation, it was pretty scary actually, it didn't even let me go to some Microsoft websites.

Cons: it comes with a very small return window. I have had issues with this thing since day one, on top of that, i kept it because i was just misconfiguration it or something, but no, it had and has many faulty moments i, its run time. it refused now to even apply access controls that are predefined. I just reset this thing multiple times, I'm about to drive over it with my car. You also don't have access to Ciscos "operating systems" or "firmware" without purchasing more stuff from cisco, like a service contract, Now I have no firmware for it, and I'm thinking it came faulty from the factory and I had no idea or enough time to test it. even if it was destroyed in a lightening storm, I still have no firmware to flash the corrupted firmware.

Other Thoughts: I went to school for Cisco training, i've gone through CCIE R/S and CCIE Security training.

4 out of 5 eggsTough one to configure but it works

Pros: Good management console
Reliable
Easy VPN configuration

Cons: Takes a learning curve to configure it properly
Only 10 users

Other Thoughts: Bought this ASA to replace our old PIX and so that it will be compatible with our upgraded Cable download speeds (50mbps VS 7mbps). Had a number of issues trying to upgrade the user license from 10 to unlimited but all was fine after that was settled. Not for the faint of heart to configure but good education for any IT admin.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent

Pros: Excellent Security
Easy to configure

Cons: Can't think of any so far except of how many users have spent the money upgrading the Base License to 50 or Unlimited when you can get unlimited users WITH the 10 User Base License without having to dish out anymore $$ ;)

4 out of 5 eggsASA 5505

Pros: Best bang for the buck. Yes, Sonicwall may be easier but come back in a year and tell me how great it is when the subscription runs out and you lose half the functionality. It's small and unobtrusive and is pretty much set and forget. I've been able to walk a non-technical person through setup without much difficulty. Price is very fair for what it is.

Cons: Yes it runs hot. It's an enterprise device and if you don't know what you're doing or don't care to find out you'll be in trouble fast. Hint: Use the wizards they are your friends. Service life can be iffy. I've had units that lasted 5 years and the same exact device that died in 1 year. Suggest not locating in a hot room. A fan is not a bad idea. I hate Cisco's Smartnet agreements. It's stupid that you can't get support or firmware updates without paying upwards of $150 a year or more per device.

Other Thoughts: It's a good device and so common in small offices these days that it's almost a given. Somebody's always selling them and if they were as bad as some make them out to be they wouldn't still be selling this exact model for the past 7 years! It's an enterprise device not some $50 Best Buy throwaway toy. It's just a firewall, however, so if you get virus infections and malware don't blame the device blame your computing habits and lack of security updates. No device will protect a user from themselves if they're determined enough. If you want web filtering buy a sonicwall and pay their subscription fees. I'd wager you'd still get infected if you had bad Internet habits. By the way if you want to set up a websense filter this thing will allow you to use it, all ASA's support it but you have to run the filtering software on another pc that's on all the time. Suggest you buy the smartnet agreement through a cisco VAR (there are VARS that will write one for a brand new one even if not bought through them) At least you'll get a 1 year warranty and a year of firmware (IOS) updates.
