AlphaShield - any one tried this?

I'd appreciate any feed back from people who have tried the AlphaShield hardware firewall.

I've tried it last year and returned it. It's an SPI inbound firewall without IP address. IMHO picking a good router with SPI does the same thing for a fraction of the price. As far as I know, the only thing AlphaShield will add is the auto-disconnection after 15 min of inactivity but this is more or less effective because *any* access to the Internet (like e-mail checking every few minutes) will continually reset the auto-disconnection timer. If you don't care about the price, then it is a plug-and-play device even my mother-and-law can install.
