I like the sonicwall stuff, myself.
For a while, I was running a server rack hosting about a hundred virtual servers on a 100/100mbit WAN connection behind an HA pair of NSA2600's. At
times they were busy, but we never had problems other than when the colo got DDOS'd- that would max out the CPU.
For 50 pc's and 50 phones you could get away with a tz205, but I'd really want to step up to the NSA series at that point to have the horsepower for
packet inspection when needed.
For the wireless, look into openmesh. The sonicwall APs kind of suck, and the heavy duty firewalls don't offer built in wireless.
Meraki is neat, but ever since cisco bought them it costs a fortune. Openmesh is cheap, and supposedly you can run your own 'cloud controller' and not
use the free web based one.
The old model devices are as low as $10 a pop on fleabay right now, since a new series just came out. Worth picking up a few to play with at home.
