Router recommendation

Router recommendation

We are planning on standardizing our MSP practice and I am seeking a recommendation or suggestion for a router/firewall, I am a bit biased towards Juniper because I am familiarized with the SSG-20 but I have zero experience with any of the subscription packages available for this or any other Juniper unit. I am not sure how it works or how can you manage it in order to restrict or provide access to users and how good it is with blocking SPAM, Viruses, etc.

Right now we have on the table the following brands; Juniper with the SRX series, Barracuda, SonicWall, and Untangle.

My conclusions so far:
Juniper - We have experienced great tech support, but we do not know how the subscription works. Seems to be reasonable priced particularly the SRX100.
Barracuda - No experience with it what so ever.
SonicWall - Similar to Juniper we wave managed several but not with the subscription turned on so we do not know how that works.
Untangle - Plenty of experience, we had several deployments and it is the preferred option of our senior tech. The Cons or it could be a pro depending on how you see it is that you have to install it on a PC it is not an appliance.

I was also looking for something that works with IP Office, any feedback will be greatly appreciated.
