Setting up front end boxes for Lync Server 2010 for HA, and was looking at using F5 load balancers. Will a pair F5 Big-IP LTM 1500 work? What would be the recommended setup/versions of the F5's needed?

Never used Lync, but:

How much traffic are you talking about?  Request per second and bytes per second.

Are you going to have SSL offloaded to the F5?

Are you going to have multiple active Lync servers or one active and one backup for fail over?

I always recommend using the most current stable version of software that your hardware supports.  That way you get software support from the vendor.  So the most current version of LTM that the 1500 supports is what I would recommend.
