WatchGuard XTM 2 Series appliances deliver a new class of performance-driven security. Network protection is stronger than ever, with full HTTPS inspection and VoIP support. All models have three 1-Gigabit Ethernet ports for faster link speeds, and optional wireless capabilities include dual-band 802.11n technology for greater wireless speed and responsiveness.
An XTM 2 Series appliance can be used as a stand-alone security solution for a small business, and makes an ideal endpoint for connecting a secure VPN tunnel back to a WatchGuard XTM or WatchGuard Firebox network.
Strong and Reliable
Pros: This is a very secure device that I've found to be extremely reliable. I use this for retail chains, and use the public wifi ability a lot, which works fantastically.
Cons: Not for the novice or even intermediate admin...
Other Thoughts: Like the con states above, don't buy this device if you do not have a very good knowledge of networking. Small changes can have wide affects on it's operation. So you have to know what you are doing.

Buggy and Unreliable
Pros: After two years of problems it is hard to think of any
Cons: My business runs on an internal client server application; we have 12 clients, 1 SQL server, 1 application server. We also have 10 VOIP phones with an offsite VOIP provider. The specs of this device are impressive however far from accurate. I had a lesser model which couldn't handle the traffic and would lock up weekly; I had to pull the power plug to restart every time.
Other Thoughts: It's an extremely poor situation when not only a product doesn't meet its specs but its up to the consumer to fight the battle and prove it. This was an extremely difficult thing for me, a person with over a dozen years of experience in software and networking; would it be possible for someone without this?
