Hardware Load Balancer for to Virtual Terminal Servers

I currently have two Windows 2008R2 Terminal Servers that I would like to purchase a hardware load balancer for.

Now I have been doing research and I notice that several company's that offer Hardware load balancer are also an addon for VMware which is something that we are utilizing for our Terminal Servers.  Any input on this is it needed or just a added component to slow down things?

Also do you know of a physical hardware load balancer that integrates with Active directory where I can send all users messages that are connected over RDP just like RDP gateway can?

I am working on getting my RD farm up and running myself, but why are you looking at a HW load balancer instead of using Windows Network Load balancing on the RD session hosts which is free?

Reason why is that is what we decided as a team an b/c I haven't had much luck with software load balancing.

Okay. I am using NLB for RD Gateway and RD Web Access and it seems to be working great. Do you plan on using the RD Connection Broker?

Nope.... Not really since I haven't been able to find a hardware version of that just software version of that.  I am utilizing remote app via terminal services.
