We use the content filter quite a lot because it's an office setting. During working hours, we like to censor the sites users can visit so it increases productivity. Therefore, the content filter has been good for us.
It is very stable with no issues. The firewall's been up for the past 35 days non-stop. It's performed great. It has performed as it should perform.

I find the security we are able to do with the policies to be valuable. The monitoring is valuable as well.

It would be good if Analyzer would be part of the stock license, so even if a layperson is getting the device, he or she doesn't forgets about ordering the Analyzer because it's already there.

The lack of support is having me look into other solutions to replace SonicWALL.

An additional feature that I would like to see is reporting that includes metrics to give me more information about the number of viruses that it has actually detected and interrupted.

Full monitoring obviously needs to be improved. We need full monitoring covered under the security licensing.

The market seems to be going to a cloud-supported, new generation of firewall products. I think that's probably going to be important to us, the next time around.
