Multi-Office VPN Router
Bought 5 of these guys, one for each office and we've been using them for years now. Running PFSense with a VPN mesh between all of our offices. Never had any hardware problems and they've been able to handle all of our internet and VPN activity. They'll continue to be the heart of our internet until we max out our VPN encryption speed or surpass the 100mb NIC speed.
Great little boxes!

Up and running within 15 minutes
Just received this, it joins a 2C3. Had it up and running within 15 minutes. Sweet.

I would love a case that allowed me to replace the CF card without disassembly, but I've learned not to put it all together until I'm sure I'm done playing.

Extremely pleased...
I ordered 3 sets (2 for the company (proxy servers with filtering) and 1 for me (for testing).
Arrived very quick in excellent condition. 
Assembling is for a minute (the board fits perfectly in the case) and another 10 – 15 minutes to create CF image and configure IPCop, PFSence, MONOwall or BSD. 
My concern was amount of memory and the CPU, but this device will serve 50 people easy with filtering, QOS, virus scan and the best: Multi WAN.
One small issue:
In order CF card to be removed or changed the device need to be disassembled (because the board does not support CF hot swap).
Overall I am extremely pleased with the product and excellent service. 
This little board could be a toy or can be turned in to powerful networking tool.

Love Them
Ordered 2 of these (with cases, p/s, and 512 CF cards). Love them. Configured as firewalls and they are outperforming similarly configured Safe@Office 500s and Cisco Pix 501s.

My only complaint is related to the case, not the board.

A suggestion would be for IDE/SATA options, and a SODIMM slot. The CPU is perfect for what I need, but being able to increase memory (for what I'm experimenting with) would be ideal.
