Pretty Good

Trent H., Newegg
11 September 2015
  • Pros: Customizable options for filtering with the totalsecure subscription. Everything you want can be done if you know how to do it. VPNs are stable. Not the greatest throughput but this is made for SOHO not a huge office.
  • Cons: logs are confusing, but I may not be reading them correctly. And making NAT policies and access rules is DEFINITELY not for beginners or people who think they are experts because they did a port forward in their linksys router that one time. Sonicwall's Tier1 support, like all support nowadays, i...

Horrible experience with this product

Damion D., Newegg
14 March 2015
  • Summary: This firewall seems to be either woefully underpowered or I got a defective unit. I returned it. Thanks to Newegg, I wasn't suck with a rotten egg.
  • Pros: Price in comparison to other equally spec'd products. The onboard OS is very easy to work with and offers allot of functionality only found on higher end units.
  • Cons: Slow performance, I mean slow. We couldn't get it to work efficiently on our network. Even working with tech support. we couldn't get it to work right. They blamed our ISP and DSL modem. I replace the DSL modem with no positive affect. After installing this firewall, all 5 of our computers stoppe...

Works great

Edward Q., Newegg
10 October 2014
  • Pros: Seller was great. Arrived fast. Device was easy to configure. Using it on home network so it has a lot more functionality than I actually need but very satisfied.
  • Cons: None. Only had it a month so we will see how it goes. So far so good.

Not for beginners but cost effective features

Kevin G., Newegg
30 November 2013
  • Summary: Not the easiest firewall to get around. If you use the wizards you should be fine. Other complicated networks need some knowledge of NAT policy and access rules.
  • Pros: Cost and features: Gateway security subscription, SSLVPN, Global VPN, LDAP and RADIUS integration. Subscriptions for content access.
  • Cons: Can be confusing for non-techies. I still get lost in NAT policies and bandwidth management rules on more complicated setups.

Awesome Firewall Appliance

Patrick C., Newegg
10 August 2013
  • Pros: Much faster throughput than Zyxel USG 50. IDP/ADP pulled 5 meg of bandwidth through USG50 and tech support did not have a fix. All other factors being equal, far superior device and I am pleased thus far. Fairly easy to configure and support is in place for ipv6. Updated to newest firmware and al...
  • Cons: None...at this time. The interface connection times-out, but that may be my settings.

Service not so good

Edodesu, Dell
26 October 2012
  • Summary: The hardware is great. Once it's configured, it's a rock. However, if you need help or purchase remote configuration, be prepared for major run-around.

Wesley K., Newegg
28 June 2012
  • Summary: I great firewall for people who want play with a real firewall. Also, it would be great for small time businesses or SOHO offices. I hope Dell turns SonicWALL around a little. IPv6 support would make me buy another one.
  • Pros: SonicWALL has a pretty cool interface. I love when firewall manufactures develop a web interface for management and not use Java for everything... 'cough, cough'. I have been using this device for about a month and its been stable. Object based firewalls are great and SonicWALL has it. Extremely ...
  • Cons: No IPv6 support. I spoke with SonicWALL and they stated they would support IPv6 soon; still haven't seen it. I was hoping for more Packet tracing tools with SonicWALL. I really miss Packet Tracer on Cisco devices; but not enough to keep purchasing them. Console access is not as good as I would li...
