  • Perfect scanner for the money

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:

    - Scans quick
    - scans up to ~50 cm (depending on size of barcode)
    - scans also through plastic
    - Good build
    - Extensive programming manual is included (but did not need to use it)
    - driver for USB-PS/2 converter is easily found through Windows update
    - Really plug and play (is recognized as keyboard)

    Cons:

    When USB cable is inserted in scanner it is near impossible to remove again.
    You have to press the scan button to scan and the laser is operational for about 3 seconds. So you'll have to operate the scanner with your hand and cannot hang it somewhere. (perhaps this can be enabled via the manual but I didn't see it there)

    OtherThoughts:

    The manual does seem useless at first, but it is also some kind of security-option to disable barcodes which are not in use for the purpose intended. Afterall the scanner is connected as an keyboard and a hacker could print it's own barcodes to hack a system.
    So it's great it is included :)

    Bottomline:

    It's a great scanner for the money. I use it to scan my DVD/Bluray collection for my administration in DVD-profiler.
