Effective once Programmed


I have probably 60 of these scanners throughout our warehouses and vary rarely have any problem with them. They are used 8+ hours a day registering up to 2,500 scans a day. Would be higher rating, but the programming could be simplified a bit.

Very Durable (Used in out warehouse and gets dropped and beat up frequently) Fast and reliable. 5 year warranty is also a plus

A little difficult to learn how to program to your exact needs- Especially for proprietary applications. Using the stand keeps the scanner on almost all the time which decreases the life of the laser.

simple and effective


simple & effective. No problem scanning very small barcodes (4mil wide lines, 50mil height) very close to other bar codes, exactly what we needed. Totally usb powered, no battery to run down, only 1 cord ; very fast scan, at almost any angle. Getting...

obviously not your fancy wireless, 3D, etc barcode reader, but doesn't claim to be

Great scanner


Works great with Intuit Point of Sale -- Intuit will try to sell you an "approved" scanner for significantly more. Don't fall for it. This one is much nicer and works perfectly.

-plug-n-play setup couldn't be more simple. Only setup I needed to do was scan the 3 codes in the setup manual to add an enter key after the code. -includes the stand -the scanner recognizes when it is on the stand and goes into a constant scan mode....

-stiff cord makes if hard to keep the scanner on its stand if there isn't a lot of open space around it (like if its on a small counter) The stand has holes to screw it down and this is necessary as the stiff cord tends to flip the stand over....

Super easy to set up, works right out of the box with 99% of what we do. Windows just sees a USB keyboard and everything goes smoothly. Included quick start guide has some common reconfigurations right on the sheet.

The included USB cable is a little short.

Does what a scanner should do!


These work very well and seem to be very durable. We have about 12 of them now in our office, shipping and manufacturing environmnets.

Works well and scans fast even on less than perfect barcodes. Easy to configure. I like the feature where it autoscans when its in the cradle

No cons really
