I think software firewalls are good because they provide a human element (you) to them.
A hardware firewall won't stop some program you download from connecting to the internet (unless said port is blocked)...
I even use zone alarm at work where we have a cisco firewall... just to be safe.

I don't 100% trust hardware firewalls.
