I only have light experience with SonicWall Firewall's, they seem to have improved their software interface in the recent past.

Most recently I managed a Watchguard x750 and the firmware (along with an annual subscription fee) is very diverse and powerful.

Basically, your typical web interface, but allows for really good and efficient spam monitoring and tweaking, along with quarantine and web site blocking.

In addition, you get a really good idea of spikes in bandwidth, etc.

Overall, as a one stop shop, and fairly straightforward administration I really like the Watchguard.

Free and all you need is a PC with 2 network cards like perhaps the Dell Optiplex XE
