DNSone opinions

I was researching DNS/DHCP appliances a while back and found this company 
(www.bluecatnetworks.com) to have a far superior product compared to anyone 
else.  We actually went through a thorough test plan and they came out on 
top in every regard -- GUI, performance, easy to use, support, etc.  The 
DNSOne company had a decent product but not in the same league.  We couldn't 
buy either of them though because our budget got cut.

VitalQIP is overkill and a waste of money and resources.
