Product Review

The Fortinet FG-300E offers a balanced mix of high throughput and storage, with 32 Gbps IPv4 firewall throughput and dual 240 GB SSDs, catering to demanding network environments. However, its power consumption peaks at 173 W and generates 570 BTU/h of heat, potentially increasing operational costs and requiring adequate cooling solutions. Additionally, while the unit supports rack mounting in a 1RU form factor and offers redundancy with optional hot-swappable power supplies, the noise level at 48 dBA could be a concern in quieter office settings.


The Fortinet FG-300E is a network security appliance designed to meet the needs of medium to large-sized enterprises. It combines high performance, scalability, and a comprehensive range of features to protect against cyber threats while maintaining high throughput and reliability. This product overview focuses on the hardware specifications of the FG-300E. At a compact size of 1.75 inches in height, 17.0 inches in width, and 15.0 inches in length, the FG-300E is designed for rack-mount installation and supports both EIA and non-EIA standards in a 1 RU form factor. It weighs in at 16.1 lbs (7.3 kg), making it both sturdy and relatively easy to handle during installation or maintenance. Power efficiency is a key consideration in network hardware, and the FG-300E operates within a power consumption range of 90W on average and can go up to 173W at maximum. It is designed to work within a broad input power range of 100V–240V AC at 50–60Hz, with a maximum current draw of 6A. Despite its power, the FG-300E manages heat efficiently, with a dissipation rate of 570 BTU/h. For environments requiring high availability, optional hot-swappable redundant power supplies are supported. Operating in a range of temperatures from 32°F (0°C) to 104°F (40°C) and capable of being stored in temperatures from -31°F (-35°C) to 158°F (70°C), the FG-300E is built to withstand diverse environments. It operates optimally within a humidity range of 10–90% non-condensing and can function at altitudes up to 7,400 ft (2,250 m). Noise levels are kept at a moderate 48 dBA, suitable for shared workspaces. Connectivity options on the FG-300E are extensive, offering: - 16 GE RJ45 interfaces for high-speed copper connections - 16 GE SFP slots for fiber connectivity - 2 GE RJ45 management ports for dedicated network management access - 2 included SFP (SX 1 GE) transceivers for immediate fiber deployment Local storage on the device includes 2x 240 GB SSDs, providing ample space for logs, reports, and other data. In terms of performance, the FG-300E boasts impressive firewall throughput rates, handling up to 32 Gbps for larger packets (1518 bytes) and maintaining 20 Gbps even with small packets (64 bytes), ensuring that security processing does not become a bottleneck in network performance. Key hardware specifications include:
  • Heat Dissipation: 570 BTU/h
  • Power Consumption: 90W (Average), 173W (Maximum)
  • Local Storage: 2x 240 GB SSD
The FG-300E is designed for businesses seeking a balance between performance, reliability, and security in their network infrastructure.
