Opinions needed

(OP)
Hello all,
I am looking for some opinions on the difference between a software based Load Balancing solution (ie Zeus) and a hardware based load balancing solution like the CSS 11501.

Does anybody have some pros and cons?  We are currently running Zeus on a Linux box, but we are a windows shop.  We are currently in the market to upgrade the licencing for Zeus, but I am wondering if it might be a better idea to move to the CSS 11501 (my preference anyways) even though the cost is higher to move to that.

Any ideas or links that give good business reasons for ether side would be appreciated.

Thanks
