Great for the price!
This review is from: Honeywell 1202G-1USB-5 Voyager 1202g with Charge & Communication Base and USB Cable (Ivory)
Pros: Small, lightweight, comfortable, form fitting design. Feels great in hand. USB to base communicates and charges scanner. Green flashing indicates charging. Has a nice "find" push button on base and scanner beeps to help locate it if lost. Has a wide range of feature which I am not using. I am only using it to scan simple code 128 barcodes programmed as a usb keyboard (PC) and it works great. Very fast, efficient scanning and sending of info even at more than 45ft away from base. I can scan 10 barcodes in a matter of a few seconds. Easy to use "EZconfig" software downloaded from Honeywell website. Great wall mount feature with a fold out bracket which holds the scanner snugly in place when mounting on the wall. Overall, really great scanner for the low end price.
Cons: #1, doesn't support the use of the down arrow. The scanner by default scans, transmits, and then hits "enter" and it doesn't support changing this to the down arrow instead. It DOES however support using the tab key which provided as a workaround for my setup. Tech support told me this is a lower end model and the down arrow feature was applied to the newer firmware on the higher end model XENON 1900/1902. I am disappointed they wouldn't update the firmware for this model though. Using the "EZconfig" software, it is misleading as it actually allows you to program the down arrow to the scanner but it doesn't function properly. It takes a call to tech support before finding out the scanner doesn't support it.
Other Thoughts: Honeywell Tech support was excellent and very helpful. A quick call to them with no waiting times got me up and running. I even called the next day and they walked me through my down arrow issue. The tech support created special programming bar codes for me so i could use in different applications if I needed one application to scan and then hit tab and the other I need it to scan and hit enter. They emailed me the programming bar codes so I can easily scan one and tell the scanner what I want it to do before I work in that application. I am really impressed with their level of support and knowledge on the scanner. They even had one of these scanners at their desk to test as they were walking me through it.
