Watchguards vs Junipers firewalls

Hi all - Has anyone out there had experience of running these firewalls near
1Gig speeds (mainly middle to large packets, not voice) between zones/ports,
if possible


Specifically we are looking at the Watchguard XTM535 and the Juniper


I am interested in experiences good and bad on either platforms and usage of
IDP/Weblocker etc on them.


We currently use SRX240 and Watchguard 1250e but have a need to increase the
throughput to nearly 1Gig.


Other criteria would be to be to do OSPF/BGP in high availability mode


Many thanks
