I've used them all fairly heavily, except the Foundry gear.  Alteon's my
personal fave.  Biggest problem with the F5:  hard drive.  In my book,
that means you instantly need two, doubling the price.

For price concerns, tho, just check ebay.  $13k AD3s for $2500...don't
say nothing good came from the dotcom crash.
