Quick and easy barcode scanner6/18/2009
Installation was as easy as plugging it in. I was familiar with "old-school" keyboard wedge scanners requiring programming to utilize with specific bar code types, etc. but this one recognized the bar codes and read them properly immediately. and it didn't have to be between the keyboard and the computer, so it can be added and removed quickly. Occasionally you have to move closer to the bar code as the range isn't great, but I can live with that.
Excellent for cataloging library4/14/2009
I purchased this scanner so that I could build a catalog of my DVD's, music and books. It's just what I needed, I have Windows Vista and just had to plug it in and I was ready to start scanning in just a couple of minutes. It sure beats doing it by hand. I am very pleased with this product. As for Buy.com, they delivered it quickly and at an unbelievable price. A happy Buy.com customer!
I am not an expert on bar code readers but this product does perfect what I want it to do.
This does exactly what it's supposed to do. It's recognized quickly with PnP. For the money, I'm very pleased.
