If you're looking at something along the lines of server base I would look at at Kemp Load balancer.  Not only does it work on servers there is a VM for it as well.  Check out Kemp's Load balancing Solutions.

If you want a physical box I would go with F5 and finally if cost is an issue there is always the open source route of Zen Load Balancer.

You could check F5, Barracuda, NetScalers, Brocade ; I am a big fan of the F5 products with a good support and performance.

I worked on F5's and Netscalers and I would have to say F5 support is great. Very responsive and good to work with.  If $$$ not an option go with F5 as I stated earlier.

That would depend on what type of LB you decide to go with as well as the type of support.  Just so you know they do take trade-ins especially, from competitors.
