Excellent Scanner

 

The scanner comes configured with the laser always-on, I can't find a way to keep the laser off until pressing the scan button. It's a minor annoyance, and certainly not problematic enough to keep me from recommending the scanner. The scan rate is...

Easy setup, automatically detected by Linux when plugged into a USB port, long USB cable included, scans multiple bar codes. Laser diode. Good price at under $100. Good scan rate

No trigger. Instead, it has placed an activation button on top of the scanner

Happy Customer

 

Looks like the company has been reading these reviews as my copy shipped with a 10' cord. Very nice. Unit is smaller than I expected but seems well made. Branded Honeywell

stays on all the time. I recall reading that there was a setting to change this behavior

Good scanner

 

Good scanner, works every time. Easy to use. Works on an Apple Mac

I also found the beep to be pretty loud. I was Leary of the top button, but it seems to be OK

Works in Linux

 

Good low-volume barcode scanner. I wouldn't use it for large-scale deployments, but for testing, development, or smaller jobs, it does fine.

Good basic barcode scanner - we're using it for entering in MAC addresses for network deployments and VoIP rollouts, and testing some barcode printing software. Just plug it into a USB port and it acts just like another keyboard

Button is on top of the scanner - slightly awkward. Beep is kind of loud for an office environment

Steady Scanner

 

Laser....not CCD! Good ergonomics. Great price

Short USB cord

I give it 4 stars

 

This scanner allowed me to enter 100+ books per hour, limited only by the speed of the software. Much better than entering 40 per hour manually. I think the scanner is well worth the price for a homeowner or a small shop.

I bought this scanner for home use. We have 1000+ books and wanted to create a library database. Plug & ; play setup worked great. Basic configuration for the sounds and scan duration were easy

As another user stated, the manual leaves a little to be desired if you're not a barcoding pro

Um...

 

Ticked off my manager with the crazy sounds you set it to make!

It has cool sounds? And different Features. Good Plug and play. No problems in installation

Its really light. Feel like your going to break it if you drop it. I don't recomend for constant use. Cable is really short. Its much harder to target things with this than our other ones. USB cable is too short. It is always scanning. Which is really...

Just works

 

My barcode scanner came in black, which I would have preferred over the gray anyway. Manuals may need some getting used to, but after I configured it once, the settings stay saved and I don't have to touch them again.

Plugs right in the USB port and acts just like a keyboard. Scans pretty much any 1D barcode I throw in front of it. It scans backwards/upside down as well, making my hand pretty happy, as I don't have to twist it for the scanner to read. Also reads...

Didn't come with the base/stand shown in the second picture
