Pros: See my previous review below. This is an update.
Cons: We have now tried the VPN functionality of the router. The configuration interface is combersome, and the VPN seems to stop working every few days. There is no way to see the VPN's status, no way to restart the VPN server, and the router does not restart the VPN server automatically if it crashes. It is necessary to restart the whole router every few days just to keep the VPN up. Log messages don't show anything meaningful.
Summary: Buying this model for my company. The best small business router. Dual Gigabit Ethernet WAN ports allow load balancing and business continuity Affordable, high-performance Gigabit Ethernet ports facilitate rapid transfer of large files, supporting multiple users Dual USB ports support a 3G/4G modem or flash drive SSL VPN and site-to-site VPN offer highly secure connectivity Stateful packet inspection (SPI) firewall and hardware encryption provide strong security
Lack of local DNS makes this router unsuitable for a tech-related business

Summary: Real specs:
Pros: The interface is good compared to the linksys routers, but cumbersome compared to Tomato or DD-WRT.
Cons: The out-of-the-box experience was rather unpleasant. The firmware was a year old (three releases behind the current) and had a bug which prevent the WAN ports from working. They would show "Connected (Inactive)". A firmware upgrade fixed this issue.
