I would go with a Checkpoint Edge-X device.  They are easy to configure and this is a good FW for small/remote sites.  I have 35 of them deployed globally for backup tunnels in case the Primary MPLS link goes down.  I've used them all in previous lives and firmly believe that these are better.  You pay a little more for them; but as the old saying goes "you get what you pay for"

Good Luck

I Installed a lot of Sonicwalls. Good price/performance ratio!

I don't know what you want exactly, but you have to choose the right model. A key factor is the bandwidth of your internet connection and what services you want running on the appliance.

Overall their support is quite good.

Quite easy to configure and wizards to help you.

Good luck.
