Load Balancing Beheamoth
Pros: Enterprise level product at very competitive pricing. Robust rule and feature set, easy to muddle thru. Setup was quick and balancing traffic in about 30 minutes from install. Heck of a lot easier than the F5's we had. A LOT is an understatement. Support was huge help for fine tuning!
Cons: Advanced rule creation requires some advanced html understanding.
Other Thoughts: The product rocks and was a breeze to setup. For our needs its overkill but cheap. Good stuff!

Poor software quality
Pros: Most high-end load balancer / application delivery features in one low-cost package. Easy to setup.
Cons: Poor software quality. Many model 340- and 640-specific features have show-stopper bugs. All the updates that have been provided contain new problems to deal with and try to work around.
Other Thoughts: Barracuda's support and technical people are responsive, but after dealing with problem after problem for a very simple configuration (3 web servers with maybe 3 million pageviews per day) where the load balancer itself causes downtime every day, the lower cost of this company's products just isn't worth it.
