Mac users beware - only works on PowerPC macs
 
This is a good product and works as advertised - with one small flaw. If you're an Apple Mac user, you'll only be able to use it if you're running a PowerPC Mac. Due to a compilation problem in the VPN client Java library by Netgear, the SSL VPN client will not run on an Intel based Mac (even through Rosetta).If you're planning to use this with an Intel Mac - wait for a firmware upgrade from Netgear otherwise you'll just be staring at a useless blue box with a flashing green light!

Great Product that is difficult to set up with poor docs/support
 
Since they first came out, I have set up several of these for customers. This one happened to be for my office. Once set up, they are great. The biggest problem is the tech support people. Slow to respond, foreign accent, and bad attitudes. Figure on 4 to 6 hours between hold time and the time necessary to work through any issues with the tech support people. The documentation is useless. I have never been able to get some of the features to work such as remotely running Word or Excel. I might b...

Be careful. This device doesn't support Windows 7.
 
My work currently uses this product for our VPN and we are currently looking for a replacement device because of Netgear's incredibly slow response and support. Windows 7 has been the most tested operating system and has been in release candidate form for a long time. Netgear still doesn't have a firmware upgrade that works with the operating system. This device uses an Active X plug-in on a web browser interface. The plug-in does a check to see what operating system is installed and won't let y...

Stop! Unable to Purchase SSL Certificate.
 
As of 11/2009 this product does not support SSL keys bigger than 1024 bits. This is a HUGE problem if you are trying to get a third party SSL certificate from somebody like GoDaddy. You will be unable to get a signed certificate. This is a cool product at a very competitive price, unfortunately this limitation makes it impossible for a business to deploy in a new install. I contacted Netgear support and they confirmed this limitation and had no solution. Do NOT buy this product unless you real...

Outdated
 
I bought this in 2008 with the hopes it would solve my network shortcomings. The reality is NetGear abandoned the product and it does not support some versions of XP, it does not work with Vista and certainly not with 7. Do not waste your money. This piece of hardware is all hype and no delivery.

Terrible support and inabilty to work with Windows 7 make this an expensive paper-weight
 
I can only echo what others have written here about how badly Netgear have let down their customers with this. I run a small business that was quite happily using this for our VPN but as more of our contractors have started using Windows 7 laptops remotely this has become more of a headache and is now of no use at all. Considering all other Netgear products now support Windows 7 (and will fully support SSL too by Q2 2010) it seems very odd that Netgear choose not to do this for the SSL 312 - ind...

Sadly, Antiquated - Might want to avoid
 
I've used the SSL-312 for several years - since it was new, and it does work similarly to most SSL/Browser-based VPN solutions. However, as other reviewers have noted, support is difficult to come by. My experience is that it takes so long for support to reply that you will have worked around your problems before they answer with what for me was inevitably a wrong solution - i.e. one I'd already tried and knew wasn't going to work.Also, they basically don't respond to actual bugs. Fi...

my second ssl312
 
Bought this as a second unit. My first ssl312 is still working fine but I needed one for my home network. The unit I received was in excellent condition and I was able to deploy it without any problems.
