    £100 is about the price point for usb connected client devices the ncomputing n170 is about the same.

    My direct connected version comes in at about £85 of hardware per client.

    Yes if the host goes down you lose the number of clients connected but a set of spares would overcome that.

    The other thing to consider is if you are getting more users on a machine you can put that much more investment into good hardware to make them more robust. Ours are i7 based with mirrored hard drives, high quality low noise PSUs and much higher quality components that would be put into a standard box. At the moment we do direct connected and have four stations per machine but these can easily be upgraded for the price of a GPU and a couple of moniters, KBs and mice to take more.

    Our ones are situated in the library so we went with silent GPUs and low noise PSUs all in a high quality, high air flow case, you can hear them running but only if you listen for them which is perfect for a library.

    The gpu's I'm using are 4 port passive cooled so no extra noise from those.

    I haven't gone full scale yet just started tested a 4 client version.

    Production hardware is i7 with an SSD.

    What GPUs are you using, the best I could find in my excuse for a country was two port (at once) passive cooled units.

    Nice, that would support RemoteFX too, alas no one stocks such stuff here so we ended up with a pair of silent Radion 5600 cards.

    New MPS installation: T100 or T150/T200? Any strong views?

    I'm looking at an MPS installation.

    HP in the UK don't seem to want to "support" T100 and are only offering me T150 or T200 but at £80/£105 respectively. I can get T100 for $50 plus duty which is what I propose to do unless anyone can give me good reasons not to.

    I see there are some T100 users out there: are these systems still working fine for you?

    The HP multi-seat comes with Classroom Manager which looks very neat too.

    Cheers.

    I've got a Dell workstation core i7 Running up to 11 Clients using T100 no problems, HD Youtube happy runs on all 11 USB clients with only little bit of clipping,


    It looks like the only difference between T100 and T150 is the USB keyboard and mouse options, finding/using USB keyboard and mouses for the T100 is a real pain. that a side T150's look like they need power to use the USB options.

    Hope that helps..
