I am considering switching my USG for a USG Pro.
My main motivation is the rack mount - I want to tidy things up in my rack.....but that somehow doesn't seem enough to warrant the cost.
I have a 1Gb down /50Mb up cable connection, so I will not be able to use the features which require HW offload to be disabled, without a bandwidth penalty.
Are there other advantages to upgrading to the Pro, which I will notice on my home network with ~50 clients and several users.
I use several VLANs already, I also intend to start using the OpenVPN feature of the USG. I suspect the performance bump might be helpful.
Thanks so much!

I upgraded, slightly for the increasd performance, mainly for the rackmount . I installed Nocturna Fans (10 minute job) and while i had the top off, slotted in a spare 4GB SODIMM.
Its quiet, fast and looks good. I have a 380/20 Cable connection and with DPI and IPS on, iI still see 380/20
