What is our primary use case?

We use this product as a gateway for our users to access the internet.

Pros and Cons

  • "This is a capable appliance and the standard features work well for us."
  • "Although manageable, the user interface is a little bit slow and could be improved."

What other advice do I have?

Overall, this is a good solution, but anything can be improved. To summarize, I would say that it's not the greatest but it's pretty cheap, and it's got basic functions that we can use. I would rate this solution a nine out of ten.
