Does anyone have experience with any of the FortiWiFi products?

20C
20D
30C
30D

???

I'm particularly looking at the 30D...it looks highly capable and it has the FortiOS v.5.0.

I'd hope to gather experience, opinions, and establish dependability and ability to thwart threats...

Thank you Friends,

From a functional point of view, all current FortiGate products are more or less identical, apart from the performance. The "D" products use the most current set of custom chips, which have improved the pattern scanning on the devices even further. If the 30D model fits your needs would have to be decided depending on your requirements ... e.g., mainly what bandwidth of uplink do you have ...
Judging from the spec sheet (http://www.fortinet.com/products/fortigate/20-30-40Series.html), the 30D (at almost hte same price as the 40C) delivers clearly higher (in most areas) or identical (for AV flow) performance as the older model, so it should definitely be preferred over the 40C model. The 20 model might be barely sufficient for a home user/office, but could be overloaded with current broadband connections ... so I'd stay away from that ...

We have something like 4-5 dozens of FGs (mostly 60C/D, couple 40/110 and larger) out in the field, pretty reliable in general ...
In general, FGs are very good value for the price, out-performing many other higher-priced manufacturers both in straight out performance and features ... for most of the usual use in the area of connecting a site to the Internet, you should be fine getting one on the uplink ... also, configuration is pretty much straightforward at least for most of the common tasks, though there are some tricky areas ...
