How about one of the Cyberguard SG range?

Hello List

I have a little problem.
Maybe its off topic but I hope you can help me :) I have a linux router with
a nice firewall. I want to reduce my energy costs and have the same security
level as before.
I have a little network (5PCs) and they are all connected to the Internet by
that router.

There are some hardware firewalls like
"Symantec GatewaySecurity 320"
"Watchguard Firebox X Edge"
"Innominate mGuard"
Has anybody got experiences with those firewall/routers?

The firewall must be "easy" to configure (i have "good" knowledge about
networks) and they have to be secure - undedectable via portscans or
invulnerable against ddos or worm/trojan attacks...
Yes i know that nobody is invulnerable against ddos - only you have a little
mexican with a wirecutter ;) Off course - at every workstation is kaspersky
av installed but i have a friend who uses a netgear router and he has
problems with some trojans/viruses in fact of using the routers firewall.
With my linux firewall i never had a problem with worms...

Can anybody help me to make a decision?
Price range up to 200EUR
If it's possible a webinterface in german ;)
