What search appliances exist now?

I only found 3:

	[2] Thunderstone 		
	http://www.thunderstone.com/texis/site/pages/Appliance.html

	[3] IndexEngines (not out yet)
	http://www.indexengines.com/

Also, out of curiosity, do people have appliance h/w vendors they like?

These guys seem like they have nice options for pretty colors:
