WatchGuard Firebox x550e

I have a small rack of 15 servers (mostly running CPU intensive applications). Our average bandwidth consumption is a consistent 7mbps between all servers. I was researching to find a solution to filter incoming and outgoing email (provide hosting to a few people on one of the boxes), to prevent spammers from getting in or the occassional customer turned spammer from getting outbound.

I was considering the Firebox X Core x550e, to put in front of our units. Has any one had any experiance with them first hand? Can the unit handle it? It says 25,000 concurrent sessions, I don't think I have 25,000 concurrent sessions ever at any giving time going out bound....

Your thoughts please....
