Sun Ray won...
In a thin client comparative review conducted by Technology and Business, the Sun Ray 2 and 2FS won the "Editor's Choice" award beating out HP, Igel and Wyse. The reviewers note that the lack of local software gives the Sun Ray 2 a high degree of flexibility for mobile users. They also detail that the SunRay 2 only costs $374, making it the most cost-effective device among the products reviewed.
The reviewers spend quite a bit of time detailing the performance of the Sun Ray 2, stating "the performance is remarkably high" and suggesting that the system would be an excellent terminal for library catalogues or POS applications. They also note that power usage is extremely low (only 12W), making it the most energy efficient machine.
reviewers also looked at the Sun
Ray 2FS for this review and note that although the 2FS looks like the
Ray 2 at first glance, it is actually twice the machine as its
case contains an extra USB port at the rear and extra circuitry
for a second monitor to be supported, thus allowing for more
to viewed simultaneously. They also note that the 2FS is priced
low at $750 and the performance results for this machine were virtually
identical to those seen by the smaller model.
Overall, the reviewers were extremely impressed with the Sun Ray thin client offerings...
