my company ran Wyse for several years and had nothing but problems. 
We finally bit the bullet and tosssed them all in favor of Neoware. 
They have been great.  The support has been good to.  The biggest
factor in choosing a thin client is the management software.  If you
don't have good software to manage and deploy the units, then you will
be wasting your time.  Neoware has good management tools and they are
compatible with third party tools like Altiris.  Wyse has some
different things,  I really don't know too much about it these days
but I am sure someone on this list can share their experience.

Both companies will send you a demo unit and provide support to check
them out.  I recommend you put them head to head and see which one
comes out on top for you.
