Steer Clear

Anonymous, Newegg
23 September 2014
  • Summary: Not for me. I'm going to try a Symbol scanner. I wish this unit better but I think there are significant issues that prevent me from using it.
  • Pros: Not many that I can think of.
  • Cons: I have been a fan of Wasp products for years. This product is not on par with the quality of their products. Here are my two issues. *The volume of the beep is terribly loud. You can change the frequency of the beep but you can't adjust the volume. I don't need everyone in the company hearing bar...

CCD Cannot Compare to Laser Scanning

Amazon
18 January 2011
  • Summary: The WWS 800 CCD scanner is much cheaper than the WWS 850 laser scanner - but I found that it was inferior in all ways. Unless there was perfect lighting and a perfect barcode, the 800 couldn't decode the scan. The 850 is much more expensive but can read barcodes in any light and with many flaws.

Doesn't work.

Cable Guy, TigerDirect.com

  • Summary: We purchased this unit because we had a spare RS232 interface on the PC. After installing it and following instructions on how to activate the RS232 interface on the base, we still couldn't get it to operate.

Good product, NOT RETAIL

Chad N., Newegg
24 March 2008
  • Summary: The *beep* sound the scanner makes is somewhat loud and can be disruptive if used in a quieter environment.
  • Pros: Great barcode recognition, lightweight, good battery life.
  • Cons: The tagline says Retail but it is not! The description says *no charger included* but it is also missing the instruction booklet that comes with the retail version, and arrived in a cardboard (OEM) box. Not my idea of retail... The CD just has PDF's of manuals for all their products. Quite unimpr...

Great Scanner

Anonymous, Newegg
9 November 2007
  • Summary: Ordered Monday at 4pm and the item arrived Tuesday 10am. New Egg is always reliable and fast! Keep it up!
  • Pros: Picks up bar code easily. Wireless communication very reliable.
  • Cons: A bit confusing on setting up the serial port mode on the scanner. No explanation on how to do it. It could have picked up the serial port mode just by scanner the scanning the base unit.
