[THIN] Re: Battle of the Thin Clients - Neoware vs. Wyse

We have had very good sucess with the Wyse 1200LE units - sub $250 and I don't 
think we have had a failure yet (1500 units deployed for about 18 months).

I recently replaced all of my Wyse terminals with Neoware.  We had
nothing but problems with Wyse from day one. We put up with it for a few
years and then decided to bite the bullet and replace them.

We have had very few problems with Neoware.  We use the Capio 508
running Neolinux. They have been  great.  The management software is
also very good and they work with other things like Altiris.

ezRemote Manager does not cost extra from Neoware and is very good.  The
fact that you can shadow the units at the firmware level from the
ezRemote manager or any VNC client is really nice and they have a
ezConfig thing that will autoconfig a unit.  I have new units drop
shipped to my facilities, as soon as they boot up, they autoconfig
themselves, connections and all, for my environment.  None of this costs
extra.  My understanding with Rapport is that it is a separately
licensed product you have to buy.

Hi everyone,

My company is soon to be going to a thin client solution and we'll be
expanding our Citrix environment to accommodate.  I've been searching
the net trying to find any product comparisons between Neoware and Wyse
terminals.  We haven't decided which exact models, but we're looking at
the Neoware eon e100 and the e300 and their Wyse counterparts (all
running XP Embedded).

Does anyone have experience with both Wyse and Neoware or have/know
where a white paper or PDF comparing the two may reside on the net?
What about Wyse's Rapport Management Suite versus Neoware's ezRemote
Manager?  Any differences or benefits to one over there other?  How's
customer service for each company?

This is all new territory to me, so any help, advice, comments, etc. are
appreciated.
