    Browsecontrol for me. Only works after the pupils have logged on though. You also get the ability to turn the computers off in the room and block internet access.

    We didn't pay much for it.

    youtube comparison of them
    I'm not convinced at all about the integrity of those tests on youtube. Video plays alright here on ABTutor, a lot of this is configurable within each app. Could the guy of not allocated more resources to Impero or set the refresh rates different on each program. I'm not biased about any of them but I know one thing Impero downed my whole network when I pushed it out to clients, something to do with broadcast and my switches, did not go into why and how as it was just a trial.

    Price wise ABTutor beats them all, apart from the free ones that is.

    Also the guy kept on going on about how you have to select the network card and auto connect to PC's, this can all be done via the settings in AB.

    +1 for AB Tutor Control, we have 11 licenses from them and I manage the software. Its simple to use and the teachers at our place love it.

    Another AB Tutor Control here - only installed this summer in the 3 ICT suites and the teachers think it's amazing.

    That video on Youtube shows video performance on Windows 7 - AB Tutor is currently very poor on 7, even mouse movement is slow and choppy for me, where it's perfectly smooth on XP. Hopefully this will improve in time. Not fair to say you have to manually connect in AB - that's a tickbox in the options.

    Here is another vote for NetOp. We use both NetOp and SynchronEyes, and NetOp wins by a small margin. Where SynchronEyes fails is it doesn't run as a service, only as a user level process. So you can't administrate the machines unless they're logged in.

    iTalc is obviously 'free' but comes with the added caveat of potential less support (I've yet to find a paid for support option for it), and it being not quite as polished as the commercial options (but then again, it is a lot younger).

    ABTutor is the cheapest commercial option I've found and we use it in school. Very nice and reliable too in my experience - although keeping it up to date can sometimes be a pain.

    The other options as others have said are NetSupport, Impero, Synchroneyes, etc... All of these cost a good amount more but then, each one has unique features and in some cases a significant amount of features that ABTutor doesn't have. However, we've never had a need for those features in our school.
