Pros: These are a wonderfully inexpensive solution for remote connections and internet access. Easy to use, limited but perfectly reliable when use correctly. If you're not 100% familiar with the t-410 best to read up on a spec sheet. Take an hour with these and understand it's operation and imaging capably is well worth the time.

Cons: the unit was missing the manuals and had been repackaged. The firmware had been altered and would not update from the HP site. a simple factory reset was needed for security . I would have had no problem buying an open box item if it had been advertised that way. also I would have appreciated an open box price. the shipping label from the first person who purchased that was still on the box.

Pros: I setup 5 of these with 1080p monitors connecting to a Windows Server 2012 remote desktop session host. It is working out great. My not-so-tech-savvy users can't even really tell that they are connecting into a remote machine (remote machine is still local to building, on gigabit network).
It is RemoteFX capable. Watching 1080p video is tolerable, but 720p and below is just like watching on a local machine. (I am not sure how much of that is due to server vs client loading, though.)
Running basic knowledge user applications is just like running on a local machine (Web browsing, PDF view/edit, Quickbooks, MS Office)
I am able to connect analog and USB headsets, as well as USB flash drives, to to the remote machine.
Came with basic Dell USB Mouse and USB Keyboard, as well as a DVI->VGA adapter.
Cons: Cannot delete "default" connections. This is a bit of a hindrance when dealing with a not-so-tech-savvy user base. If there is a button they should never click, it is better to just not to have the button. My way around this is to rename the unused default connection to "Do Not Click This", and actually use the other default connection and name it "Click This".

Pros: Cheap as dirt PC station, easy to install, can handle Internet/intranet browsing.
Cons: Flaky connection (regular loss of connection). Average-poor reliability: every 12 hours, expect 20% of your stations to crash, requiring a hard-reboot of the device. Also, some of the USB and VGA ports will be unreliable too (expect 10% of your batch to require repair/RMA/trashing after 6 months). Terrible video performance: scrolling 3 lines blurs the entire screen and freeze the station for 0.5 to 1 second.
Other Thoughts: If you really can't afford anything else and your users don't work on these stations for hours (on long and lots of documents), it might be an "okay" choice.
Otherwise, it's going to be a very frustrating experience for the users who try to work on it. In that case, it might be better to only get 2/3 or 1/2 of available stations, but actual computers this time.
Tasks: - Checking their emails = OK. - Checking a few information online (Internet/intranet) = OK. - Writing a few emails, 1-2 pages documents = possible, but cumbersome. - Working on documents with more than 4 pages, or with more than 3 documents = NOPE.

Pros: Easy to setup, extremely affordable (as you can see ^), compliant with all of my EDU software, secure, power savings, scalable and central management
Cons: The only con I can think of is that at first my video and audio was a bit choppy. I got in touch with the rep at NComputing who called me previously and he got me an engineer to solve my problem. They have quite a bit of server speccing guides that I missed
Other Thoughts: I would definitly recommend this to anyone in the EDU field since that is what I'm most well versed in. It's been very easy to use and setup. Plus i'm only managing two hot PC's instead 47 standard desktops.

Pros: not sure any exist. For a little more than each thin client cost I could build a good computer for school use (when you factor in the servers you need to run them in a school setting.
Cons: really buggy software. overpriced for what they are. you could buy google chromebooks or cuboxs that actually have their own processors and ram and storage. repeatedly have problems.
Other Thoughts: As a tech deploying these in schools, I have seen a lot of issues. Currently there is no way to setup a printer conveniently. Students have to pick their class printer from a list of others in the school and that is a real issue at any grade level. Every time we update the server software to a new version or roll back to an older more stable version we have to go around to each box again and do setup. On a more general note, some software our schools use doesn't run on thin clients periond.We have only deployed a fraction of them so far and have had techs and engineers from their company come down and try to help get their bugs straightened out. These things have cost us more time than they will ever save. If you must try thin clients use a more established company.
