Save your money, or buy a few, because the price is great for what is promised, and wait for the developers to write stable code for the devices.
Multi-VLAN capabilities and Inter VLAN Routing
The ability to tie several WIFI SSIDs into the appliance.
The big one.. IPSEC VPN capabilities built into the appliance. Can be used as an EZVPN Client in NE mode.
The price point was also far sweeter on this small business line vs the higher end Cisco appliances.
Now for the Cons:
If you have read the other posts on the code not being stable and the configuration being a bit troublesome to deal with. They are right.
I found several bugs with regards to the ability to configure the VPN elements and to keep them running, but I was able to find workarounds that didn't involve rebooting the RV every night.
There also seems to be a random lag when accessing certain content from the web which I am assuming means somewhere the device is dropping packets but this is not confirmed.
No built-in PoE (a single port or two would have been awesome)
In summary. Like any other version 1 code release I would expect things not to be overly polished just yet but I do hope Cisco pumps out a new code release soon. For the cost of the device and I would hope a few more code revisions to stabilize some functionality this product is a great buy over other SOHO models.
The second problem is that it is just not ready yet. There are a lot of little glitches, and a few major ones. Currently there is only the first version of the firmware available. You probably want to wait for the next update.
Don't consider this unless you have some business networking experience. Don't expect to just plug it in and go. You need to review the many options and make sure they are set correctly. From looking at other reviews, a lot of the other people buying this have troubles because they don't know what a lot of the settings do and have no idea whether it is configured properly. Given the state of documentation, that isn't their fault.
Major problems: The QuickVPN client (that you run on your laptops to connect over the VPN) requires Administrator rights to work. From a security point of view, this is anti-security. Also, there are no diagnostics if the QuickVPN doesn't connect so you have no help figuring out if the problem was permissions, bad password, already connected, some intermediate device dropping IPSEC, etc.
You need to disable the UDP Flood attack check that is enabled by default. This can block outbound DNS requests and interferes with some web pages and will kill an internal caching DNS server.
If you connect to the ISP with a static IP address and the WAN interface disconnects (upstream device reset, power loss, cable pulled), it stays disabled until you manually log in to the RV120W and re-enable it. Obviously, this must be done locally, where you may not have staff to do it.
Minor problems: QuickVPN does not give you a local IP address (like L2TP/PPTP) so you may have other issues since your network sees a foreign address. If you try to connect to administer the device over HTTP, it doesn't redirect to HTTPS, but it doesn't work either. The administration interface is sluggish at best. Occasionally the CPU seems to peg at 100% for no apparent reason. This will hurt performance when it happens. The logs are obviously a mishmash of different software components and don't use a common format, even for the date/time stamp so they are not always time sorted. I haven't gotten remote logging to work yet. The logs include a lot of things you probably don't care about and don't include some that you probably do.
Note there are plenty of functions I haven't used (including wireless) that I can't comment on.
All that said, I've decided to keep the unit. I measured 16Mb/s VPN throughput (using QuickVPN) which is enough to max the ISP connection. It is small and draws little power. It has a number of firewall features I need, some very nice ones like packet capture, and after way, Way, WAY too much time to figure out how to set up, actually does work.
