Effective once Programmed

Brian C., Newegg
24 February 2014
  • Summary: 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.
  • Pros: Very Durable (Used in out warehouse and gets dropped and beat up frequently) Fast and reliable. 5 year warranty is also a plus
  • Cons: 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

Timothy T., Newegg
21 October 2013
  • Pros: 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 the right distance is a little trickier, but no...
  • Cons: obviously not your fancy wireless, 3D, etc barcode reader, but doesn't claim to be.

User Review

4 September 2013
  • Summary: Some come with a mounting stand. The way we scan I do not use them because the barcode stays on 24/7... This would kill the scanner so quickly so we just do not use the stand and use it by hand
  • Pros: Very Durable Scanner! I own a bunch of these for production line scanning. Very reliable scanners. Dropped a ton in our line of work and they are still kicking. Ability for slow and speed scanning, and does not get bogged down. I use mine with serial cables, but used USB for a couple things, driv...

Great scanner

Vestal A., Newegg
26 November 2012
  • Summary: 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.
  • Pros: -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. Great for quickly scanning many items in a row...
  • Cons: -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. -constant scan mode tends to confuse some cashiers, b...

easy to use and program

Justin J., Newegg
19 September 2012
  • Summary: i bought 4. three for my company for inventory and material receipt; they all work great with our MRP software. i also have one for my house; i use it to tag my BDSM meat puppets to make sure none have escaped. Before i had to use a paper and pencil and the lube was always staining the paper.
  • Pros: instructional sheet worked well.
  • Cons: doesn't come with holster for walking around warehouse.

  • Pros: 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.
  • Cons: The included USB cable is a little short.

Does what a scanner should do!

David G., Newegg
11 January 2012
  • Summary: These work very well and seem to be very durable. We have about 12 of them now in our office, shipping and manufacturing environmnets.
  • Pros: 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.
  • Cons: No cons really.
