I am currently using a Xyplex N9000 box and love it. I can't comment on it's filtering capabilities, though, since I use a Livington IRX for our Internet
connection. The Xyplex was easy to set up, is very reliable (it has never once
crashed) and the midplane design allows for a very clean physical setup.
