Keep an eye out for a Cisco LocalDirector too, they appear to be (I've 
never had the opportunity of pulling one apart) the same case as the 
PIX 520, but since Cisco acquired Arrowpoint and people started 
ditching their LocalDirectors ('cos the Arrowpoints actually work) you 
might find one cheap.

I'd also be interested to know if the LocalDirector and PIX are similar 
enough that the LocalDirector could be re-flashed as a PIX.
