ASR was the second product to be blessed (or cursed) with toaster 
chip a.k.a PXF.
Like first product NSE-1 it was failure and newer software will disable and
won't allow enabling PXF, so everything will be software switched, like in
NPE400, performance is below NPE300.

No. Also it is EOL platform and as price for gray NPE300 is ridiculously
small I personally wouldn't accept even free ASR's.
