  • A USB Connected Barcode Scanner That Is Easy To Use, And Includes An Adjustable Stand

    I have recently started to catalog my rather large book collection using a USB connected Laser Barcode Scanner to read the bar codes on the books (at least the relatively recent books with barcodes). This saves a lot of typing, since software is available to use the scanned bar code data to produce a complete database of detailed information for my library. I am also looking into cataloging my fairly large audio CD and movie DVD collections in the same way. A simple to use barcode scanner which can be plugged into a desktop or laptop computer is needed to accomplish this. The TaoTronics TT-BS003 Laser Barcode Scanner fits the "easy" classification very well. The Scanner comes with an attached 6.5 foot (2 meter) cable with a standard USB connector on the end of the cable (I later found that the other end of this cable has an RJ-45 connector which plugs into the Scanner, and can be removed from the scanner). I began by plugging the USB connector into the USB port on my computer. Windows 7 (and Windows 8.1) automatically detected the Scanner and automatically installed the correct driver. That is all that is needed for installation. One of the advantages that the TaoTronics TT-BS003 Laser Barcode Scanner has over most of the other handheld barcode scanners on the market is the included adjustable stand. There are times when I need to use the stand to hold the handheld scanner, so that both hands are free for other uses when scanning. Without the stand, I need to use one hand to hold the scanner, which only leaves one hand free for other tasks. Of course, the scanner is easily removed from the nicely designed stand, and can easily be set back in the stand again when needed. The Scanner is detected as a keyboard type device and shows up under Device Mangager (in Control Panel) as an HID Keyboard (human interface device keyboard). This means that when a barcode is scanned, the characters of the barcode will be entered into the computer exactly as if the characters were typed manually using a keyboard. This makes the scanner a very versatile device. Whenever a text box is open, or whenever a program is expecting keyboard input, a barcode scan will enter the barcode into your application, without any typing on your part. This input might be a specialized program for data input for inventory or cataloging, or your own Excel or Word template for data input. I then opened my word processor (MS Word) and scanned some barcodes from products I had around the house. The scan produced the digits of the barcode on my screen. Each barcode scan would put the digits of the barcode on the next line of my text, just as if the Return key on a keyboard had been pressed. I repeated the same thing with my spreadsheet (MS Excel). It worked the same way, putting the text in each cell of the spreadsheet as barcodes were scanned. The scanner has an Auto mode and a Manual mode. When the Scanner is first plugged into a USB port, it is automatically put into the Auto mode. An 8 second press of the Scanner scan trigger puts the Scanner into the Manual mode. Every 8 second press of the trigger alternates between Auto and Manual. In Manual mode, the trigger must be pressed and held to activate the laser in the Scanner for the barcode scan. In the Auto mode, the laser is activated whenever the Scanner is brought to within about 6 inches of the barcode. The laser will then turn off in about 5 seconds. In Auto mode, the trigger will never have to be pressed, and scans automatically when the Scanner is brought near the barcode. This is very convenient. The Scanner will "beep" when a scan is completed. I next used Google by placing my cursor in the Google search box, and doing a barcode scan of a product box that I had around the house. Google immediately showed me a page of websites it found for the item that I had scanned. I then used UPC Scavenger (upcscavenger.com) and UPC Index (upcindex.com) with the Scanner and immediately found information about the scanned product, as well as prices and where to purchase the product. Other websites are also available to show UPC product information. The manual has 14 pages in English, most of which are barcodes, which are used to place the Scanner into various operating modes. It has a Default mode barcode scan, as well as many other setup modes. I found the Default mode to work for everything I tried. The Scanner is well made, using a high quality durable plastic. The 6.5 foot cable also appears to be durable. I was impressed with the quality of the product, especially for the price of the Scanner. Although I received this Scanner as a sample in exchange for a fair and honest evaluation, I feel that I have done an honest evaluation of the product. I did not receive any money or anything else for the evaluation. I will definitely be using this Scanner to continue cataloging my book, audio CD, and DVD movie collection now.

    TaoTronics Bluetooth Wireless Scanner Model TT-BS016 -Update-Aug-8/2015 (My original review was done on the TaoTronics Model TT-BS012) This is my review on the TT-BS016- I received this product to do a 100% honest review of the product. TaoTronics® Bluetooth Wireless Barcode Scanner Supports Windows, Android, iOS, Mac OS and Works with iPad, iPhone, Android Phones, Tablets or Computers I took the Bluetooth Wireless Barcode Scanner out of the box along with the instructions. The instructions for this device are a lot more comprehensive than in the past, it is a great improvement! These instructions are easy to read and simple to follow, plus the company includes it's email address in the instructions just in case you have any difficulties setting things up. I have found this company very willing to do what ever they can( within reason, of course) to help their customers out. They certainly believe that customer service is a top priority. For me having a company like this as back-up, knowing that if I ever have any problems that all I have to do is contact them, gives me more confidence in their products. The set-up on this bluetooth scanner was simple, it was basically plug in the scanner to allow it to charge for about 2.5 hours. Once you sync the scanner to your device (after it is charged) you are ready to go. The directions explain how to sync the bluetooth scanner to the device you are using, it is a simple process to do. Working with this scanner you get about 20,000 readings or 30 hrs. on one single charge. It wirelessly connects to your computer, smartphone, tablet, and mobile PDA by a rechargeable battery. The only problem I had with this device was disconnecting the cable from the scanner after it was through charging. The connection on the bottom handle of the scanner has a connection, like a phone line or computer line (actually called RJ45 modular plug). This connection is so tight I couldn't get to the release. (I actually broke 3 nails trying to release it)I finally got someone to help me release the plastic lever and release the charging cable. The good thing is you don't need to use the cable except when you are recharging the scanner. I think after sometime it will loosen up some to make it easier to get to, if it doesn't then I will contact the company & see what they suggest. This is supported by Windows, Android, iOS, Mac OS; works with computer, smartphone, tablet, and mobile PDA. It has a 64KB internal memory which supports up to 4000 barcodes in inventory mode when not connected. The scanner is simply easy to set up, scan and use. Before you know it, it'll be the best new employee you have! -Has 12-month warranty that covers parts and labor that can be extened by 6 months if you register your product making it a total of 18 months. -1-TaoTronics TT-BS016 Bluetooth Laser Barcode Scanner -1-Charging Cable -1- Bluetooth USB Adapter (for PC) -1-User Manual Review of the TT-BS012- >I received this product without cost so I could test and provide an unbiased review of this product for TaoTronics company.< 11/4/2014 I received this product to do a comprehensive review of this product. The first thing I did was take the instructions out of the box and read them. They are easy to read, and understand which is a great improvement over their instructions of the past. The scanner is a lightweight scanner that has a transmission frequency of 2.4GHe and transmission the distance between the scanner and the USB receiver of 30-50 meters (100 to 165 ft). The manual contains quite a few barcodes to help you need any help the people at you get up and functioning. If you need any help the people at TaoTronics are always there to help as well. I give this product 5 stars. *****

    This does work well for what I needed it for. I used Mindbody Online and didn't want to pay their outrageous price for their "branded" scanner. This one worked well in Windows 8.1 and Ubuntu 14 to scan items and Spafinder gift cards. No errors.

    This was my 3rd barcode scanner from TaoTronics. This one is my favorite because I can work freely without attached to the cables. I can easily move around and do my barcode scanning. This one is very lightweight and has ergonomic design which is very comfortable to use. The battery life is awesome it lasted as advertised about 30 hours and auto shuts off feature is great. I like keeping my gadgets, Electronics and movies inventory organized and with my data entry this barcode scanner makes a lot easier. Pairing it with my IOS and Android device is flawless. There are two ways to pair this either you scan the pairing barcode on the manual to set the barcode scanner into pairing mode or you can just press and hold the trigger button for 12 seconds and this will go in to pairing mode. You can see the LED will rapidly flashes and this indicated that it is on pairing mode. Bluetooth wireless feature is definitely a nice feature of this bar code scanner. Package contents: 1x barcode scanner 1x charging cable 1x USB bluetooth adapter 1x CD driver installer 1x user’s manual Wha I like about this bar code scanner: Light weight Ergonomic design and very comfortable and easy to use Easy to set up Supports majority of platforms Awesome battery life. Very accurate Cons: I have no cons for this product. I have scanned several barcode formats and it recognized it with no problems. This is easy to set up and make sure you don’t loose the manual because every single bar code settings are in there. I have tested this on Mac10.10.4 and PC with Windows 7 and 8.1 and works great. If you are looking for bar code scanner for the price and value this is the one for you. This is suitable for business and for home use and very economical barcode scanner. This makes my work easier adding Bluray and DVD disk movie titles on Collectorz software. I was supplied a free sample product to evaluate and in exchange for my unbiased review.
