    The prices are real. Glad I didn't wait 6 months ago for the new series and picked up the USG 50 when it was on sale for $189.

    Not really impressed spec wise since better gear for much cheaper has come out in the past 2 years, but hey no doubt they'll lower prices just like they did before.

    I'm waiting for the USG 50 to drop. I intend to use it as a SSL VPN endpoint only.

    cool, these units seem to be bulletproof. i have a few that have run for about 2 years now without a sweat.

    that wireless controller looks interesting, however not sure how good zyxel wifi is.

    The pricing is based on the bundle with all services licensed. The base hardware-only skus will be closer to existing series pricing.



    MSRPs for the USG Performance series range from $420 for the entry-level USG40 to $800 for the wireless-enabled USG60W. This pricing includes 1 year licenses of security services including AV, IDP, Anti-Spam, Content Filtering. This series is also available without licensing.

    I'm having a terrible time with my USG100-Plus and have been getting amateur hour level support. I RMA'd it once. Had problems with my replacement, RMA'd again and just got my original unit back!

    Are you talking to them on the phone or sending e-mails.

    My experiences with communication via e-mail have not been good.

    Phone support was excellent thou....

    Both, maybe I'll call again today. I'll just plan out the time to sit on hold for half an hour.

    1/2 hour? Never had to sit on the horn for that long... 15min is the max for me. a few times I called I got right to someone in a hurry.
