    I am considering testing a V10L to replace our current thin clients. We currently use V30’s and S90’s, but I really haven’t been very happy with CE (performance wise) or XPe (can’t stand the write filter). The users we have on thin clients are connecting via RDP and terminal services and just using our inventory software and Office. They don’t require support for any peripherals.

    My users are on the verge of revolting because those on a thin client are experiencing slower browsing on the web and more frequent freezing up in Office than those on PC’s. I’ve heard the thin clients with the wyse OS boot quicker but do they show performance increases in other areas? If anyone has thoughts on this I would appreciate it.

    Hi Luke,

    I agree, the performance of CE is not that great. Given your history I would strongly recommend doing an eval of the V10L before you buy.

    The V10L has fantastic performance and also the option to support rich multi-media so web browsing will be rich.

    One thing to note, you mention that:

    more frequent freezing up in Office than those on PC’s

    You should not have any issues with “freezing” – are you going over a WAN? You may have to look into that issue further,

    Cheers,

    I am managing several hundred thin clients over a WAN, and those are the ones that experience the freezing in Office. I understand that entering the WAN into the equation is dramatically degrading performance, although the current thin clients don’t do terribly.

    The real issue seems to be that some of the Word documents on our intranet contain links that pop up more Word docs, and all these additional sessions add up and cause the “freezing” situation over the WAN.

    The support team and I have suggested altering how those files are distributed but have basically been told to deal with it, and find a thin client solution that can deal with it.

    Replacing older thin clients (like the Compaq T20 and HP T5300) with V30’s has helped significantly reduce freezing complaints, but there still are complaints and I’ve been asked to keep exploring options.

    Thanks again for your quality and timely replies, this site really is one of the best resources for thin client info out there.

    Hi Luke,

    We had simliar issues with the CE and XPe Operating systems and are in the process of testing out the Wyse Thin OS on our older devices. We have it running at the moment on an ex-V50L (now V10L) and some of the older CE based 3125SE’s we use.

    So far the results have been great with performance greatly improved, especially on the 3125’s. Doing things like using Mapping software, viewing streaming media and other intensive programs show a clear improvement on WTOS compared to the old CE. (In a Terminal Services environment, connecting with RDP)

    We’re looking at converting some of our XPe devices to the WTOS also (speaking to wyse support about it) as we too are not fans of that write protect filter.

    Hope that info helps somewhat,
    Michael.
