real world av testing + consumer grade UTM appliances

I am writing a piece on the relatively untapped UTM (Unified threat management) appliance home user market. I will be looking at products like SecureSpot, iphantom, Stingray, and AlphaShield.

There isn't a lot of data on the performance of consumer grade appliances. I'd like to put the AV components through the wringer by downloading as much malicious code through them as I can (without working too hard at it, :Wink:). Is there a downloadable folder with thousands of virus samples that I can try getting past these machines?

Any thoughts on the virus folder, UTM appliances for consumers in general, the above mentioned solutions in particular, or anything else relevant would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks for your time.
