We use RM Tutor 3 - don't really have many problems with it at all, you can group workstations into specific rooms for ease of management and browse for machines of certain names e.g. IT1-## rather than have it connect to the entire network.
Can also be used by the teachers if they wanted to show a specific computer screen in their room to every workstation... lots to play around with! You can even broadcast audio/listen to audio to workstations :-p
Impero cost our school £5000, but I feel it was money very well spent just on the amount of time it saves my team as we can now do so much more remotely. The ability to run scripts and the like (Impero has its own scripting console) on a whole room at once is fantastic. The support from Impero is also excellent and they tend to incorporate suggestions and tweaks into the very next release of the software (which come round every few weeks).
Once you start factoring in the teaching tools, and Impero is streets ahead of most of its competitors.
I am reliably informed that A2Z Computers from whom I purchased the system are quite negotiable on price! There are ways of recouping costs as well, such as resale of PICstick (a version of Impero for use at home by concerned parents)...
