Replace 3005 VPN Concentrator

We have two 3005 concentrators that need to be replaced.

Is there anything equivilant that will allow for creation of groups, Cisco VPN client, web VPN and is reasonably priced?

What do people generally do for a plug in replacement to the 3005 VPN concentrator?

The 3000 series concentrators are being phased out, Cisco is pushing the ASA devices as a replacement. The good news is that the ASA provides an excellent alternative, the bad news is that the learning curve can be rather high.

What is generally done about the cost?

At the moment, the PIX firewalls are not EOL.

If I replace the firewalls, just because the 3005 is EOL, will be a large expense correct?

Also, at the moment, the firewall is passing through the traffic to the concentrator in a DMZ.

What is the alternative in the ASA appliance?

And, does the ASA allow for the creation of groups for access like the concnetrator does?

ASA5510 or ASA 5505 depends on the number of users, etc...
