I use pfSense at work, and I've been very pleased with it.  We
spent a bit more than $500 on our setup, but that's only because
we went with a couple of 1U Dell machines to put in our rack
(we're using the CARP failover feature, so we needed two).

The setup is fairly easy, the UI is well designed, and it has
all of the features we wanted.
