  • Usefull but magnetic reading erratic

    posted by pileon on 02/17/2013

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

    Pros:

    Nice construction, comes with a tab on the battery to protect from draining during shipment.
    UV lamp quite bright.

    Cons:

    Magnetic readings are erratic, at least for Euro Bank notes. Never managed to capt the metallic strip. On the serial number of the banknote I have a positive identifications 1 time our to 5 y passing on the same bill several times

    OtherThoughts:

    It is a little bigger than I have imagine.
    You will need a flat surface to place the banknote on it so that the MG scan can occur

    Bottomline:

    If it bips then most probably not face. But if it does not bip, most of the time it's either incorect handling or passing on the wrong place.
    Finally I am reluctant of using the MG option because of too many false alarms
