I am not familiar with the TZ-205 specifically but I have never had an issue with a Sonic Firewall. I would recomend you go with that one just base off my experience. At a glance those two seem to have similar specs... If you would like a more detailed answer let us know what your specific network needs/desiered use will be.

Small business environment that would need a VPN service include in the router, DHCP the usual nothing fancy.

The sonic wall will do all of that and is fairly user friendly. I like the GUI for them. One might be better than the other but I don't think you can really go wrong with the sonic.

Of course, see if anyone here has experience with the ASUS one. Honestly that is the only company I recomend for motherboards and they make high quality products.

Go with the SonicWall as they're more geared towards businesses and are quite stable. The ASUS router is more suited for a home setup in my opinion.
