Both units are capable of gigabit throughput. If you want to run VPN and IDS-IPS, quad core model is a better choice!

Those are different devices than these which have been withdrawn previously?

Still feature an HDMI port, is that working correctly now (was declared a FreeBSD issue previously).

Why use HDMI for a console port?  Why not USB, as Cisco does?  Cisco uses USB to connect to an internal USB-serial converter, so that a serial terminal program can be used.  They use mini USB, but micro might be more appropriate these days.

Derelict:
Not just a firewall. Can run windows, be used for digital signage, etc.

Actually hdmi port is working only when device was booted with screen connected into port.
That means trouble with accessing console if device was booted without screen connected.
that can be fixed in future.
I am using Serial console on it, hooked up into FTDI Serial

That's all.

In general my MBT-4220 Aka. SG-2340 works like a charm.
actually running pfSense 2.4 beta, however there is a way to instal pfSense 2.3.4 by injecting UEFI freebsd loader (You need to know FreeBSD basics), or by installing Coreboot/Seabios instead of existing UEFI (but keep spi flash programer near if you brick bios, you will need flash it using programer)

I did some performance routing tests , device will handle 1Gig link routing without any problems, with AES-NI accelerated IPsec i was able keep stable AES256-GCM tunnel with ~340 Mbps .

What i am worry about is using SNORT/Suricata , as rules are memory hungry and this device have only 2 GiB RAM.
I strongly  advise against using ZFS on this device as ZFS is well known as memory hungry FS.
