As I said at the top of the review, the VBR isn't anybody's clone. It can handle sharing up to 10 WAN IP addresses, has the most flexible port and URL filter scheduling that I've seen, and SPI features that should make it especially attractive if you're running servers and are looking for an extra edge in protection. And all for a street price under $50, too.
The main things that may hold it back is its limited logging and lack of static port range mapping. Let's hope that SMC doesn't take as long birthing those improvements as it took to (finally) get this baby to market!
