Pros: This box can do just about everything- ssl vpn, ipsec vpn, branch office vpn, web-blocking, virus scanning of packets before they hit your network, spam filtering, voip, and on and on. Once you understand it, you can easily upload pre-built configuration files, remotely manage and make many changes to the firewall without even being on site.
Cons: There is a learning curve, for the most part the device is designed to be configured not by a web gui but by a program called the WSM- Watchguard system manager. This tool is amazing and can be used for any watchguard firebox product but if you've never seen it you'll easily get frustrated looking for things in the web gui. Also there are addition costs associated with many of the extra features like web blocking and virus scanning. Once installed these features have to be manually applied to the network before they are actually active- simply purchasing these features doesn't just make them work.
Other Thoughts: The company I work for has a large number of clients on Watchguard Firewalls and they are great to work with as a partner. This is a great tool with very diverse uses but expect a steep learning curve if you've never used a firewall at all.
