Yep, they are great. We will be using them where we can, but we need sound for some deployments, so I'm having to buy HP thin clients for those locations. Unless Axel can come up with a sound enabled version of the M70.

We should have sound within a couple of months....
(We are proposing deploying sound via USB, the rational being doing so will avoid requiring specific audio hardware, so this will hopefully maintain a good compromise of product cost and sound support....

When you say via USB, how would you achieve that?
16th June 2008, 09:14 AM #21
Yes I am wondering exactly what you meant about USB sound? I have to admit that however you get sound working - a standard 3.5mm jack would be of preference in my oppinion.

Any sort of 'USB dongle' would rapidly disappear in our school environment. So we probably would end up using an alternative thin client (eg, we can get the HP 5530's for ~£100 now) with onboard sound.

We are anticipating our customers who require sound will simply use headphones/speakers etc that connect directly to USB port.
For example (though in no way recommending)

No no no - £35 for a set of headphones that in all probability get trashed - you need a standard jack socket.

....as I said, I wasn't recommending that particular product, I gave that URL as an example that USB headphones "exist". We don't supply non Axel equipment
I am sure with a little surfing one can find a model to suit in terms of price and quality....
....and even factoring in the above "high-end" phones, the M70w + these phones will still work out lower cost than the competition....!

Axel box - usb flash drives
Hi everyone, new to the site so apologies for hijacking the forum. I have been looking at a way to introduce more thin client units throughout the school and have been using an older Wyse terminal a test (3125 box) which works well, but only a few specifc flash drives seem to work on. I know a lot of people would prefer to limit flash drive access but were staff are concerned they still need to accesws them. So do Axel boxes support usb flash drives, i read it doesn't out the box but does it when configured to do so, do they have any limitations other than that. By the way i had never heard of Axel units before but look good at first glance (have used wyse terminals in past but not over the moon with wyse pricing).
again apologies for hijacking the forum.

Axel do support flash drives.
There seem to be two camps with different views on memory sticks.
Some think they are a very bad idea - ie without them the thin-client is protected against adding (virus / illegal) software and no one can download proprietary information (ie company database)
Others think memory sticks are an essential and natural way to move data around.....
To cater to both worlds we provide full read/write support, by default disabled, but can with a few clicks (and setup password) be enabled.
The mem stick is seen as a network drive to the user of the terminal only.
Let me know if we can send you an eval to run up against your existing terminals.....

Hi Axel, thanks for that, a trial would be ideal. Also any info with regard education pricing as mentioned in the thread? (if available). I will contact you shortly to sort out details (firstname.lastname@example.org i presume)
