    It is the limitation of 250 machines that makes it a no go for us.

    Spicworks has an official limit of 250 (it is, after all, targeting the small to medium sized business market) but anecdotally it can actually support between 350-500 users/devices. It's only a monitoring tool and so offers no management features. But for free it's still good.

    I think for Shane's situation where he has a lot less than the 250 maximum (officially intended target range) it's a no brainer. But for me anecdotal isn't good enough. I need it to support upwards of 600 systems. Could test it though and see if it actually scales that well
