    I saw some reviews where people states that it will not work with their system, or that it doesn't operate as stated. Well, in my experience, this scanner is great. I've used it on my Mac (running Mountain Lion), and on my PC, running Windows 7 Professional 64-bit and with both systems this scanner functions great. It basically acts as, and your computer will see it as a keyboard. Where whatever barcode you scan, it will enter that information into your selected text box, or area, or what have you. It will enter the barcode data, and automatically hit "Enter" if you will to submit the data, if the action requires it, such as doing a google search for a part number or entering a part number into your inventory or such. Some people have said that the build quality isn't great, that the laser doesn't line up with the actual area being read, and I would like to say that mine is fine and perfectly aligned. The scan distance is great, whether you're right up on the barcode because it's a tiny little barcode, or whether you are about 12"-15" away, this thing's great. You can instantly change the modes simply by squeezing and holding the trigger for 8 seconds, this will switch it back and forth between auto scan mode, which will cause the scanner to emit the laser and start scanning when it senses a change in distance in front of the sensor, like it you were to hold it up to something, or whether you have the gun mounted and you hold an item understand it for scanning, auto scan mode is great. Press and hold the trigger again for another 8 seconds, and you are in manual mode, which will cause the scanner to scan when you squeeze the trigger. This is great so you don't accidentally laser someone in the eyes if you're moving around and such, or if you just want greater manual control. The build quality of this unit is nice and solid. For the price, it is an excellent value. If you need a nice barcode scanner, and you are on a budget, this is the scanner for you!

    Purchased two of these for our inventory because our scanners that we have are old and broken from dropping. They came on time, but when I try them out I did not like how the scanner worked. All our old scanner shoot when I pull the trigger, but these scanners scan without pulling the trigger. I look for a fixes but no program scan barcode in the manual. I call the company and got a call back a couple a day later just to say they do not have assessed phone tech, but to use the support email. the scanner will work but I have to hold the gun without moving, place the barcode under the scanner and then pull the trigger. It important at inventory to be right on or it will make inventory a big problem. Up-date today I when to Taotronic web site I noted at the bottom of the product notes is how to turn of the auto scan. You hold the trigger for 8 second, (not in book) and now it work like my old scanner.So, I change it to five star.

    It is hard to say anything bad about this reader given the price. Amazing read speed at a price that is almost too good to be true... but trust me it isn't! On top of all this the manufacturer has great email tech support. I needed some custom functions coded and didn't have any
    It is hard to say anything bad about this reader given the price. Amazing read speed at a price that is almost too good to be true... but trust me it isn't! On top of all this the manufacturer has great email tech support. I needed some custom functions coded and didn't have any barcode creation software for the type of code required. They created and emailed me the barcodes I needed to code the device within a few hours. I have 5 of these running currently with no issues.

    This is a very good product at a great price! We have 2 separate Point-of-Sale systems in our stores, so I am quite familiar with laser scanners. This product is used mostly to speed up data entry into my laptop, not into the Cash Register computer, so it helps that it is easy to pack into my computer case for travel between stores. So far, it has read every barcode. I had not used an Automatic Sensing scanner before, but I am now hooked! It is so much easier to just swipe the product in front of the scanner with one hand, rather than use both hands to hold the product and the scanner. Just a note, I use a spare stand I had lying around, as this particular model doesn't come with one. This makes data entry so much quicker, freeing up one hand for the keyboard to switch between data fields. I would definitely recommend this item!

I want a scanner that i can use to catalog my vast collection of books. Once I scan, can the info then be transferred into an excel file to sort? Customers are chatting about this View conversation
A: I believe you could scan directly into a spreadsheet. The scanner can be set up (or maybe is by default) to essentially replace keyboard input. You could scan a bar code directly into a cell in a spreadsheet. When testing our scanner, I have just opened a blank word processer page, and started scanning barcodes. The scanner just "types" the scanned bar code into the page, and even throws in a carriage return so that the next scan happens on a new line. This was all done with the default factory settings on the scanner.

Does this scanner work with clothing, shoes, hats, etc? Customers are chatting about this View conversation
A: Yes it scans UPC-A, UPC-E, EAN 8, and EAN 13 which are the most common retail product barcodes. It doesn't scan RSS codes like QR or G1. I improved my scan rate by putting the scanner in a stand.

Does it scan just the barcode onto an excel sheet or can it scan a barcode with a discription onto an excel sheet? Customers are chatting about this View conversation
A: Scanners will decode any info in a barcode - data can be alphanumeric.

Can this be used in school libraries to show books returned or books outstanding? If not please suggest one that does. Thanks Customers are chatting about this View conversation
A: That would depend on which barcode format the library system chose to use. These guns can read quit several barcode formats by default and they can have their output tweaked by scanning codes in the manual. You need to ask your system admin as to what barcode format your system uses, I'm willing to bet it is a standard format. Or just take a chance and return it, you may have to eat a restocking fee but these guns aren't that expensive so the fee won't be so bad. In the past few years I have bought 9 of these guns. They work great. Corporate IT always wants me to buy their suggested $200+ guns but I buy these and save the money for monitors and misc office stuff. I have not had one go bad yet.
