I have played around with the Edgerouter ER-5. It's a fairly immature 
product compared to Cisco and Juniper. One of the bigger problems is that 
they don't really release fixes for earlier versions, instead they keep 
releasing new versions, combining new features and bug fixes in the same 
new release.

My recommendation is to read the forums they have where people do bug 
reporting, and after 15-30 minutes I think you will have a fairly good 
idea about the product, and if it might suit you.

For a simpler setup with static IPv4/IPv6 routing and perhaps even OSPF, 
that wasn't touched much after installation, I'd say it's fine. It's a 
powerful little box. It has some features most home gateways do not, and 
it lacks some features some of the highend ones have.

They're attractively priced, buy one and try it out!
