Scanner Works - Poor Manual – Handheld USB Visible Laser Barcode Scanner Reviews

posted by orippingale on 10/03/2012 Certified Owner

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:less than 1 day

Pros:
Good price Reasonable construction and build quality Works on all barcodes scanned. Detects as “USB Input Device” in Windows 7 without any drivers or installation. Outputs codes as if typed by keyboard.
Cons:
Very poor English manual Unable to change configuration Most of manual in Chinese. Sometimes fussy about scan angle to barcode. Once plug on cable attached to scanner it is almost impossible to remove.
Other:
RS232 cable option would be useful
Bottomline:
For the price and functionality a good buy but could really use a better manual. Buy if you just want to scan barcodes in default state as manual does not provide any information on configuration in English.
