Looking into moving from a software to hardware firewall. Any big drawbacks? Any big positives?

We have standardized on Calyptix which has a lot of functionality.
1. Separate out the firewall function in a different box that is likely to be harder to attack
2. Get to charge the customer for another box or service. I usually try to get an MSP fee on the box. I have heard others give away the box to close an MSP sale.
3. Frequently any competitor of yours will not know the box you are using.
1. One more thing to learn.
