    I originally ordered the TaoTronics TT-BS012 model. It didn't work consistently for me (failed to scan barcodes about 40 - 50% of the time). I left a 3 star review for that item and TaoTronics contacted me within 24 hrs of my review to apologize for the poor performance of the item. They suggested the BS009 model and sent it to me to try out. It's working out very well for my retail store. It's not 100% accurate with scanning every single item on the first attempt but pretty darn close to it. It feels more sturdy than the BS012 model and also the charging stand is a bonus over the BS012 model. I am very happy with the BS009 and I appreciate TaoTronics for reaching out to me to resolve the original issue I had. Not many companies these days actually respond and react to less than satisfied customers...was nice to know they actually seem to care.

    The TT-BS004 scanner is a great scanner for everyday use. I hooked it up to my laptop running Windows 7 and it worked right out of the box. I like the dual trigger that comes with the unit because it allows you to scan more comfortably. It sits comfortably as shown in the picture. The material is plastic and it makes an audible beep when you scan items in. One thing you will want to do is to make a copy of the user manual or download a copy from the manufacturer's website. The instruction manual shows you how to switch modes but more importantly it includes a bunch of codes to switch functions on the scanner...so you lose the manual you lose a lot functionality with the scanner. I scanned a bunch of items from all around my kitchen cabinets. I scanned a bunch of different bar code shapes and sizes and this scanner picked them all up. I had a Word document open and every time I moved an item in front of the scanner it would light up, beep and then output the bar code digits. My wife is a librarian and she used it at her work to scan in and out books and said it worked fine for that as well. I was provided a sample for review in exchange for a review.
  • Dead easy to use on a Mac even for barcoding dunces

    I'm using this on a Mac running Yosemite; it works great. I use Librarian Pro and other software to inventory stuff, so my scanning needs are rather minimal. But I used some in the past that ran over serial connections, and required serial-USB converters, and that got to be too much. Then I tried using the various iPhone apps, but that often required me waving around my iPhone like a madman. This works great, right out of the box. Your Mac will give you an alert cuz it thinks its a keyboard, but just click through that. In a sense, it is a keyboard: it scans the bars, converts to numbers, and then enters those numbers wherever your cursor is, just like you typed there. For me, it allows me to either scan an product's existing barcoded info (like the UPC at the checkout scan) or something we've created. It's fast, like checkout at the mini mart fast. And accurate. You can work either manually or automatically, in that it can "see" that you've plopped a barcode in front of it and it will read it. No other software necessary, but normally one would use something that can make sense of the barcodes, like inventory software. It can scan a variety of formats, and there are a ton. You can change settings by scanning commands in the manual (which could be better, but it's a manual, not a primer on barcoding). You can also configure what character to transmit at the end of the barcode, like a return or a tab. I wish there was some more info about this, but I suspect that some of this depends on what software you use to receive the barcodes, and what codes you are using. The manual notes that this can be configured, with a separate cable, for regular serial transmission, or in keyboard mode with a PS-2 type keyboard. Normally that's point-of-sale and warehouse type use, and although this can do that, I'm just using it as a rather barcode-clueless consumer. Previously I found that a scanner for input for mere mortals to use for things like home equipment inventories were just too expensive. However this unit is so cheap and so fast it makes sense for me to use it even though I'll never use a fraction of its capabilities. Combine it with some software for creating your own barcodes and then printing them to label printers and you've got a really handy home inventory system. You can use it to rapidly enter numbers for things into say an Excel spreadsheet or Filemaker database, useful for all sorts of projects where you need to keep track of things. But I find the product UPCs work great for that, since with software like Librarian Pro it'll look it up on Amazon and autofill all sorts of info. And many products now come with serial numbers in barcodes; scan those in too. I just used it to scan in a bunch of model numbers of internal hard drives and their serial numbers, for example. You can even amuse yourself by scanning codes on stuff that doesn't have the numbers printed; I used that to figure out something I was filling out had a return authorization number appended to it. Just don't lose the manual; you'll need those codes to program it, like changing the character after the code to a return or tab. At this price, the unit is a very handy addition.

    The barcode scanner package comes with the scanner itself with USB cord + a user manual. The installation is actually qutie straightforward, you simply plug in the scanner into your computer, assuming you are running Windows. Once Windows downloads and installs the driver for your device, you simply need to open up a notepad, point the scanner at any barcode, you should start hearing a beep, and seeing barcode values being spit out onto the notepad window. To put it quite simply, this scanner is really a virtual keyboard. What it does is that it scans a barcode, and then it will simulate the keypress on your keyboard, and type out the barcode values on your screen. This means that, to a regular software developer, you will need to write a keyboard hook per WIndows API (or per Apple/Mac OS API), and uses that to capture scanner input. As for a regular person, the scanner can still save time by typing out the barcode values on your screen, so you can go on with your business and perform other mundane business related tasks. One thing I should point out is that the scanner will not work with reflective surfaces, meaning that it won’t work with barcode generated on your smart phone display. Overall, the barcode scanner delivers what it promises, supports plug-in-n-play, and works right out of the box. I am impressed. If you are in need of a barcode scanner that works with your Windows computer, this is definitely the one to get!

    This scanner works well. I have used it both with a specific application and as a simple input device to gather serial numbers from inventory into an Excel spreadsheet. For most apps it is Plug and Play.
