I'm going to get up on my soap box here... keep in mind, you should try to support the pfsense open source project as much as you can. With the Qotom box you found, you're only about $60 away from the "official" Netgate SG-3100 box. I'm not trying to guilt you into a purchase, and I'm not saying you're going to get a better experience with name-brand or not, but being that close in price, I would send my money to Netgate and the firewall project itself.
