5 out of 5 eggsReader 4500

Pros: Good product design, fairly durable, anti smudge features help with fingerprints, easy to clean.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I am amazed that people review this with negativity. I have FULL support on these fingerprint readers and their enterprise software, I have had nothing but good things with these readers, I currently have 16 deployed and will be adding 5 more today, so please don't listen to junk reviews where they state there is no support, I call them often for documentation and assistance.

2 out of 5 eggsNo longer supported!

Pros: Accurate and fast.

Cons: No more consumer support. Stopped in 2009. Nothing beyond Windows 7. Existing version 4.11 software did not have many features.

Other Thoughts: I have used Digital Persona products for over five years through different iterations of their finger print readers. It is a shame nothing is sold to do the same thing.

5 out of 5 eggsClarifying some misinformation

Pros: These fingerprint scanner are built well and last longer than the previous brand we were using.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: My company uses these scanners with DigitalPersona Pro for Enterprise. We currently have around 50 of these scanners in place as we transition from the previous brand.

Let me clarify some misinformation that has been given.

1. These scanners work with 32 bit and 64 bit Windows 7 and Vista. They also work with 32 bit Windows XP SP2 or SP3.
2. You can not pull a fingerprint off of glass and use it with this scanner to get a successful read from DigitalPersona software.
3. DigitalPersona DOES support this product.

1 out of 5 eggslacks support and software

Pros: Fast

Cons: Does not come with software. Only able to get it to work on an older machine that had already had DigitalPersona Personal loaded and then only after updating the driver from the DigitalPersona (automatic updates loads the wrong driver). Their Enterprise solution is expensive unless you have at least 10 installations.

2 out of 5 eggsNot 64 bit

Pros: very accurate and fast. No driver issues or BSOD.

Cons: Not 64 bit compatible. cost more than it should as this unit should cost no more than $40 max. Save your self some money and just remember the passwords. This unit can be fooled with a piece of tape that has the persons finger print on it. I took and touched a glass and then used tape to lift the print. then transferred the tape to this unit and it worked.

Other Thoughts: NOT very secure. get a face recognition or eye scanner.
