    Default u25x performance -- especially GUI vs BYO

    Hi all, contemplating a u25x. Right now, I've been testing Untangle home on a left-over 5th gen Intel NUC using (gasp) a USB NIC for the second NIC. Moving around the GUI, including making changes and pulling up reports, is very snappy. Has anyone compared a u25x versus a BYO setup like mine? Should I expect similar performance?

    The worst thing in your setup is usb nic. I would never use a firewall with usb nics. In your situation I would go for the 25X
    I like to listen. I have learned a great deal from listening carefully. Most people never listen

    USB NIC are not supported. They can stop working on any future version. Not to mention the performance is terrible.

    Thanks, guys. I know about the USB NIC situation (hence the "gasp" in my OP). Specifically, I'm asking: how snappy is moving around the admin GUI on a U25x versus a "real" server? My experience has been that appliances can sometimes be annoyingly slow for GUI. I'm NOT asking about throughput of the device -- other posts have covered that.

    u25X has a m.sata drive so it's quite quick.
