Personally, I'd use a Sonicwall TZ-190, as it has the features you asked
for and has a good user interface (a lot like the linksys style of
interface, just with many more options).
Otherwise, Vyatta, IPCop, smoothwall (really a rebranded/extended IPCop)
and Cisco are all reasonable options. If you end up going with Cisco
and you're not comfortable with IOS, you'll probably save a lot of
headache if you just budget in to hire a Cisco expert for a day or half
day to get everything going and train people on the basics.
A few people brought up incoming failover. I'm assuming that you're
only interested in outgoing failover, as incoming is a whole other
ballgame and requires cooperation from your upstreams (Which I don't
know of any cable providers that will support BGP).
