    Anyone using thin clients in the South West or Wales?

    Hi All

    We are looking into thin client solutions and would appreciate it if we could visit a site who are using them. Is there anyone who wouldn't mind showing us their setup and answering a few questions. It would be a great help.

    There is an install that I know of about 80 10ZiG Devices in Cardiff that is using XPe device

    And more at the National Library of Wales who have a LTSP solution running on 10ZiG Devices

    And there is another that I cannot recall where it is, but they are using AS400 connectivity

    Each of these is using them for different applications, so depending on your requirements would depend on the site that I would recommend.

    Thanks

    I was thinking of a college or school who are using thin clients for your typical office apps, web browsing, etc. Pushing out XP, Vista or Windows 7.

    There are loads of happy thin client users giving their experiences in the thread below

    Axel AX3000 m70 for Lesson Monitor

    The most recent one is based in Wales - he is very active on Edugeek, I am sure he would be happy to share his experiences with you, if you want to PM me I will happily arrange a email introduction...

    Are you referring to me Matt More than happy for a visit or chat.
    We use three different thin clients - Axels, Samsung SM711NTs now running thinstation and old PCs running thinstation, no prizes for guessing which I prefer! - all off a 2008R2 server farm
