I would go ahead with ASA series boxes because they are being projected as product replacements for most of the devices under security portfolio...

you're better off comparing the asa 5510 to the pix 515 - they are more closely related in performance. the 5505 is a smalloffice/homeoffice device. the asa 5505 is more closely related to the pix 501.

in either case, go with the asa because of support and functionality differences.

it pays to make a bit of sacrifice and move forward with the asa , first for its many functionalities that the 515 does not have, besides .. the 515 model end of sales was in 2002 and support ended on 5/24/2007.
