If you have a limited budget and need to cover a dozen or so hostnames,
they are great. After we got our hands on one, not only did we use it for
the customer-facing stuff, but for a ton of internal sites that were
previously using self-signed certs. I have had no problems with any
browsers or email clients that I regularly use.
