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.
