"Fatty and Skinny Went to War" and ...


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.

The reviewers also looked at the Sun Ray 2FS for this review and note that although the 2FS looks like the Sun Ray 2 at first glance, it is actually twice the machine as its double-depth case contains an extra USB port at the rear and extra circuitry allowing for a second monitor to be supported, thus allowing for more applications to viewed simultaneously. They also note that the 2FS is priced extremely 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...
