Before I get to my conclusion, let's just take one more look at this beast:

Mmmmm. OK, judgment time.

I like this router. The price : value ratio is excellent. It performs like a champ, has loads of features, and its price is very reasonable for what you get.

While I would like to see some of the quirks fixed, like not being able to set the subnet mask to what I want, but this is relatively minor compared to what the Linksys RV082 gets right. The router is easy to set up. The firewall's custom rules are flexible. The support for VPN termination is a plus. And having the rudimentary load balancing / failover is the icing on the cake. The RV082 may be overkill for Joe six-pack, but is just the thing for power users who want big features but don't want to pay for big iron.
