Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

Pros:
This costs 7 times less then a barcode reader bought locally.
It's USB so just plug it in and away you scan.
Reads codes from brown cardboard, orange paper, large or small.
Behaves just like a keybord imput so can scan to Notepad/excel etc.
Cons:
Does not read far as 58cm as stated but still works well out to 30cm which is fine for me.
Other:
I need to scan a variety of barcodes including ones printed on cardboard and coloured stickers, it reads them all.
Internal mirror looks delicate so may not survive been dropped and I am not going to test that.
Bottomline:
Cheap, simple to use and works.
