NComputing L230

 

NComputing's L230 thin client is an option if you need to add a group of low-impact users to an existing Ethernet LAN. However, you'll need to ensure that the host PC is adequately specified to deliver acceptable performance to the terminals attached...

A cost-effective and relatively easy way to add extra users to an existing network, Terminals are low-power, secure, easy to administer and quiet, Works with Windows- or Linux-based host PCs, Up to 30 terminals supported (with a server OS running on...

Long and slightly confusing install process, Performance is inversely related to the number of terminals installed, and directly related to the computing power of the host PC, Unsuitable for demanding applications

The L230 is solid thin client hardware for word processing, low-level spreadsheet work, web browsing and other office tasks.

OS Restrictions

 

Will need to upgrade OS before I can use this product.

Nice small unit

Does not work with Windows "Home" operating systems. Received this from ncomputing tech support: "We do not support any Home operating systems due to licensing and technical restrictions in the Home operating systems. You will have to upgrade to a...

Good product for business purposes

 

We actually have more then 50 units working in our company using a dedicated Windows 2008 64 bit server which hosted 3 virtuals Windows 2008 32 bit Servers each one handling about 20 L230 units. Main uses are running an application based in Lotus...

Massive Hidden Costs!!!

 

Even though they advertise half the price of a base PC there are still massive licensing costs you must implement. You can only legally connect 1 user to a Win XP Vista 7 install. You must upgrade to a server edition of Win which costs $1000, about 10...

Works Fine.

 

It works!, but, the USB plug that it has only supports VERY basic devices (Flash Drive, Mouse and Printer); If you need to have a Signature Pad, Credit Card reader and stuff like that, better off purchasing a small computer.

Great value for your money, but restrictive

 

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...

USB Feature rocks!

 

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.

Good product, but no multimedia

 

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...

Product Specifications

The L230 dramatically cut computing costs by sharing the untapped power of standard PCs. Best of all, IT staff and end users do not need special training because Ncomputing's solutions are easy to manage, eco-friendly and compatible with standard PC applications. The L230 can use standard Ethernet infrastructure, so that the users can be located as far away from the shared PCs as you need them to be. The L230 brings enhanced graphics performance (with improved color depth and widescreen support) and a microphone port - all in a stylish new smaller chassis (just 1 inch tall and 4.5 inches square) that takes absolutely no desktop space at all when mounted to the back of a monitor. Of course, the L230 includes VGA support (resolutions up to 1280x1024 or 1440x900 for widescreen), an Ethernet connection, PS/2 keyboard and mouse ports, audio output, and power cable connections. The L230 also has a USB port for flash memory devices and an audio input for microphones.
