Your question is not trolling. Rather, it is hijacking.

Nevertheless, much of this thread is about laziness in searching. So here are a few more examples of BSD-based products:
  • Network Appliance -- their new line of filers is based on a customized version of FreeBSD. Work was started by Spinnaker before being acquired by NetApp.
  • IronPort Systems (acquired by Cisco) is best known for spam eradication had most of its product line based on a customized version of FreeBSD.
  • F5 Systems' load balancers were originally based on a FreeBSD core.
  • Force10 Networks bases much of their gigabit & 10G switches & routers on NetBSD.
  • Ricoh Co., Ltd. has MIPS-based laser & multifunction printers operating on a NetBSD core.
  • Savin also has a line of printers based on NetBSD.
And not to slight OpenBSD, the following article was mentioned on some time back:

However, to support your frustration, the liberal nature of the BSD License allows usage without disclosure. Companies don't have to advertise their products as being BSD-based.
