Pros: This item works perfectly well in a windows environment, including the controversial windows vista, and the newer windos 7. Excellent choice for price restricted networks, it allows for an inexpensive infrastructure. Cons: It requires the user to purchase PS2 keyboard and Mouse, because the usb port in the system is only one and it's just an extension of the server computer.

I own some of these and the L120 product. I like this higher model because you can plug flash drives into the USB, or in my case a USB printer.

These are really good if you are only looking for basic or business apps to run. Multimedia, like playing any video is horrible. But for a normal business setup they work very well with no real limitation on where you place the host computer. If you need multimedia support I am told the X series works really well, but keep in mind the device must be under 10 meters from the host computer.

These units are great if you know what you need and have the specific application to suit them. If you are sharing a single app among many users, and there aren't huge licensing issues, nothing works better for the price.

I am currently purchasing my 6th one of these. Running on an XP Pro desktop. This is great. My company has always had trouble keeping every computer up to date. Insurance business which has a lot of different software from each company we work with. Now we only have one computer to update, makes everything real easy to use. And anyone can sign on at any computer. So now if the receptionist is off one day, anyone can sit at the front desk and work there as if it were there own. Total time, money, and energy saver. I agree with everyone else on video, it can't play video well. It won't freeze up, but it just skips frames. The voice (sound) isn't affected.

every thing worked fine except for the fact that it does not support USB 2.0!! I am setting up these units in an advance Denist office and almost all of the new equipment, requires USB 2.0

I have also recently been tasked with deploying this device for my organisation.. Initial testing was extremely frustrating when using an XP based server but it worked smoothly on a win 2003 Enterprise server. The only difficulty now is getting the upgrade patches automatically and timely. So far I've had to manually point to a downloaded version to initiate upgrade. Still though the upgrade only covers admin console functionality and not quality. I have resolved the issue of XP server initiation by removing windows HOTFIX but still maintaining my firewall as I'm not a great fan of Windows update anyways. All else seems fine, incluive of all plug and play devices.

I have 2 of these units connected to a XP pro workstation running the server app. Everything worked fine until a new windows update was applied then the terminals would no longer connect. After uninstalling the windows hotfix the units went back to functioning properly. Still no updates that address the problem with the windows update but for the price and features these do exactly what we need them to do. We are using wireless optical mice and keyboards on both units with no problems.

Seems to work as stated. Despite the other reviewers comments, this works very well with optical mice. Video... could be better however it is acceptable. Plans are to outfit the rest of our network with this device. I would hope ncomputing would add a gigabit port though???? How about it where is the gigabit edition?

We have four L230 units on our network. One of them is using a 22'' wide ViewSonic monitor and it does display properly. Also have installed HP laserjet printers on the L230 USB port, and printing works just fine also. The L230 users have been able to utilize all of our software so far. We are using Microsoft and Logitec optical mice with no problems (refer to an earlier reviewer's problem). You will need a robust little server for your L230 terminals. We have found that 512 Mb of RAM per L230 needs to be available on the server. Otherwise the whole system slows to unusable speeds. If you are using an XP based server, be aware that the 32 bit verstion of XP will support a maximum of 4 Gb of RAM, so you are probably limited to 8 users per server. We have experimented on servers using both XP Home and XP Pro with no apparent difference in usablility. Overall, we are happy with the product and plan on adding a few more units.

We have bought 8 L230 for a network one came to us bad, but that is not what is the problem. The main problem is that none of the L200 and L230 units work with optical mice ps2 or usb with or without ps2 adapters. So i called Tiger support and told them of my problem. I was asked '' What do you want me to do about that?'' in a condescending tone. So i said can you give me a list out mice that do work with these units? Support responded with no we are just a reseller of this product and we do no product testing. Take a look at this link http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=1870109&CatId=3509 Logan has no mention of any incompatibility issue's? We have a wide range of optical ps2 mice here M.S. and Logi plus no-name here and nothing works but a ball mouse. So i contacted the manufacture NComputing for guidance they said that they should work with all PS2 style optical mice, So i said well can you tell me the model you use. They said NO.

It is a nice and useful device. But its server software update is too out dated. Windows XP had an update on April 16. After the update, an error message kept popping up to inform me to drop the Hotfix of the Windows update since the conflict may result some terminals could not start. Luckily all my terminals are functioning OK. Now it April 30, 2 weeks, there are still no updates for its server software to adapt the Windows update. This should happen to a device cost this much. On its manual, it asks you to wait for its update before you update your Windows. One or two days delay behind the Windows update is acceptable. It is already 14 days after the Windows update, you expect me to risk my system to wait for your update? If there is an attack on my system due to my delay of updating Windows to wait for its update, will NComputing take the responsibility? Its technical support response is very slow. Go to the forum on its website, a lot of complaints.
