Ncomputing L400 vs L300

NComputing L300 was introduced in 2010 and has been a cornerstone of NComputing ever since. It's remarkable that this IT device has remained unchanged for over 13 years—a black box with VGA and 10/100 Network, powering labs worldwide.

Now, we have the successor after a good 13 years , NComputing L400. Let's explore how it differs from the L300.

NComputing L400 has superior hardware compared to L300

L400 is powered by an ARM Quad Core, an upgrade from L300's dual core. The RAM on the L400 is doubled to 1GB, and the VGA port on the L300 is replaced with an HDMI port. The Ethernet remains the same at 10/100. The power port is now a USB Type-C, a convenient change, allowing power through any USB-C adapter if the original adapter is lost.

Full USB redirection, all 2.0 ports

This means your USB devices like printers, cameras, and scanners can seamlessly work with the L400. Additionally, all three USB ports on the L400 are now upgraded to USB 2.0, unlike the L300, which had two USB 1.1 ports for keyboard and mouse and an emulated USB 2.0 port for peripherals. This really is a big step forward as you don't have to worry about which peripheral device is compatible with your NComputing.

The L400 offers better resolution and vCast support compared to the L300.

It supports a resolution of 2560 x 1440 (up from L300's 1920x1080), providing an enhanced video playback experience. However, dual display support is missing on the L400, requiring an upgrade to NComputing's RX series. With an upgrade to VSpace Enterprise, you can also utilize UXP Turbo.

Pricewise, L400 is 20% higher than L300, but with all these upgrades, it would still make a worthwhile upgrade.
