2 out of 5 eggsBudget solution (video issues)

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.

5 out of 5 eggsMade my life easier

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.

2 out of 5 eggsDon't recommend

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.

4 out of 5 eggsGood and bad

Pros: One of the cheapest thin client solutions, easy to deploy, good multimedia support when you "tune" the host.

We have these at several client sites and they seem to like them.

Cons: Must modify host using their performance guides (registry edits) to take care of video performance issues, night and day difference afterwards. USB support is horrible. Vspace software caused frequent blue screens on a terminal server at one of our client sites, no problems at other sites (Windows issue??).

Other Thoughts: I'm a huge fan of VDI and thin client use. I basically like this device, it has it's uses but due to it's limitations I prefer a higher end HP thin client. With the HPs I can't tell that I'm not on an actual PC, with the L300 it seems like I'm looking at everything through a lens so to speak.

3 out of 5 eggsNot Sure How I Feel Yet!?!

Pros: Low Energy, Small Footprint, and easy to set-up

Cons: choppy video, requires remote services if using windows, only 100 Mbps

Other Thoughts: I really want this product to work and I the staff at ncomputing have been there to answer my questions. I just cannot get it to work as fluid as I would like. I bought one and will buy more once I can prove the concept works.

4 out of 5 eggsGood but not Great

Pros: Very small, light weight and low power use. Easy to configure and a great price compared to the alternative.

Cons: I found scrolling web pages was not as fluid as I would like - I get better performance from a PC... but maybe that is normal.

Other Thoughts: The L300 and vSpace server configured quickly and easily; an integrated kiosk mode makes it really easy to set up a secure kiosk with little effort. I am disappointed however with the performance that I am experiencing. I am using these as kiosks to present a webpage or more specifically our search catalog at a public library. The issue is when scrolling web pages; it is not as fluid as when using a PC. I don’t know if this is normal or not because I have nothing to compare with. I have been in contact with NComputing support and have tried different browsers and system configurations. While I’m not thrilled with the scrolling performance it is acceptable for our needs. That being said, I’m impressed with the size of the unit and how little power it uses, not to mention saving about 75% over deploying a PC for the same use.

5 out of 5 eggsL300's are a great tool

Pros: Works in most environments, does what it says. can watch HD video and use flash. 2 USB 2.0 ports next to a USB port for the mouse and keyboard. I use this at work every day we have over 50 work stations on just one server. we had a quote from citrix for our VDI Deployment that landed us with a $1,700 price tag per seat. our price tag with the Vspace server, L300, software support, The extra management center, keyboards, mice, 19" monitors, server, and server licenses, came to about $350 a seat. HUGE savings compared to a Citrix Deployment. management tool allows me to manage my Subnets and L300 settings from my lap top because its web browser based which makes things much easier.
uses less energy then our pcs we tested it at 4.9 watts

Cons: even though they say its coming soon there is no dual monitor support yet.
would like more USB ports.
with Thin clients you lose some supported devices that you would have with a PC.
with only 5 watts of power usage for a deviec (also a pro with energy savings) can only charge small devices like iphones. in order to use USB powered devices that require more power then 5watts you need to buy an extra usb power hub which means an extra wire and plug is used.

Other Thoughts: this is a great solution to virtualize desktops not a great solution if you want to play video games or video edit

5 out of 5 eggsGreat desktop replacement

Pros: We have about 50 of these boxes that i manage at work and they are great. It works as it says with:
-great picture quality/ resolutions
-Very fast
-centralized software to manage them
-Supports and plays fullscreen video fairly smoothly also

Cons: -USB support is limited like stated.

Other Thoughts: I read reviews on the other L-series and read about the performance issues but haven't experienced them with the L-300's. But if you do plan on having alot of users i would recommend a powerful system. We have 2 desktops running 16gb of memory alongside a quad core i5 at 3.2ghz
