5 out of 5 eggsWorks As Expected

Pros: For this price, it works quite well no complains so far. It is being used for scanning bar codes and for that it gets the job done.

Cons: It can only scan in close proximity to the barcode of around 2-5" away. If your looking to scan further away then you'll have to find a more expensive one.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks

Pros: Installs on XP with no added drivers required. Reads USPS barcodes. Black color. USB plug.

Cons: Takes some effort with some longer/wider 1st class mail barcodes. Direct scan beam is too narrow for these, BUT it will finally get it in of slanted slightly.

Other Thoughts: If you do a lot of 1st class mail labels consider upping to a gun, rather than direct contact scanner.

4 out of 5 eggsworks ok

Pros: Appears to work good. Low price.

Cons: This isn't a laser type barcode scanner that you see at most stores. The device has to be placed directly on the barcode to scan scan it.

Other Thoughts: The next one I get will be a laser type.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Great value for the money - the scanner needs to be touching the label to get a good scan, but for this price I'm definitely not complaining.

Cons: None.
