kruxdeux >>    Installing dual f5's this very moment

ArtemisGoldfish > Glad to know we're well-loved. Didn't happen to get 2000s or 4000s did you?

For extremely small values of "well-loved", I guess.  I will never ever buy anything from F5 again and encourage other folks to do likewise.  See, I once worked for a company that had a fleet of BigIP 6800s. They had a little problem with underrrated (400w vs. 425w) power supplies that kept croaking on us... only problem is that the power supply MIB not telling us when the first one died and it was only when the second one started getting flakey and we started getting watchdog resets (and the box rebooting non-stop) that we'd know to replace 'em.  Search the F5 knowledge base for "sol8001" and read between the lines.  This is the tip of the iceberg.

That wasn't the worst part though.  It was the horrible (much worse than the local cable company) experience of dealing with their tech support organization.  They tried to welsh on supporting the devices we'd shipped to our facility in Hong Kong, claiming that they'd only ship the replacement power supplies to the site of original purchase and that shipping and importation were on us, and that they had to charge us full price for the power supplies.  I finally forced the issue after several days' escalation and getting our legal department involved.  When I found out that their AsiaPac support depot was LITERALLY WALKING DISTANCE (3km) from our Hong Kong datacenter, you can imagine what I thought of them.

F---- technology company, would not buy again.  And neither should you.

I checked out the seller ID (24 items bought/sold) and the ratings were all 100% with tons of "great ebay buyer" feedback from some seller called "fleshlight1" so in general I would say this seller is pretty solid.

gingerjet: Cisco ASA 5510 adaptive security appliance

I thought you said it was a firewall.

If you're going to make passive-aggressive statements, just whip out your e-dick since you know you want to. I'm certain there are a lot of applications that need even more, but after seeing DDOS rip through everything and barely make a blip on the CPU of one of these guys, uhhh... i'm wondering where the punchline is. It could be you.
