Default Soekris experiences

I'm considering buying a Soekris machine, my Pentium 1 OpenBSD firewall/router is crashing every 2-3 days because of a bad hard disk, something like a Soekris net4501 seems to be a good replacement, small, cheap, reliable, and only 10 watt.

Does anyone have any experiences with Soekris machines? OpenBSD support shouldn't be a problem, there is even a soekris reseller specialized in OpenBSD (http://www.kd85.com/), but is the hardware of good quality? It is a "critical" machine for me, so reliability is important, Basically I want to install this machine and not look at it for at least 10 years...
