I have tried the Microsoft, APC, Dell, and Omnipass fingerprint readers.

While the hardware is mediocre, the software is garbage.

Vista support is rare, Vista x64 support is ubelievably rare, and Windows 2008 support is non-existant.

Microsoft's own fingerprint reader wont properly support Windows Server 2008 or 64 bit.

On the other handm the Eikon /Upek solution is fantastic.

The hardware is made from aluminum instead of plastic and has a nice sturdy feel. However its the software that makes this solution stand out as "best of breed"

Not only does it support 64 bit and Vista and Windows 2008 Server, but it supports 2 factor and 3 factor authentication as well.

When you run the software, your first impression is WOW. The user experience is fantastic. It installs perfectly, its very intuitive and is very visually appealing.

It looks and feels like they really spent a lot of time on polishing the sofware.

If you are looking for a fingerprint solution, this is it.

Im so happy with my purchase that I just threw out my Microsoft and APC readers and I deleted my Omnipass software(that I had to pay extra for)

My new christmas wish is to get this reader built-in to a keyboard for my office PC.

Bottom line: I give it 12 out of 10. I bonus point for broad OS support and 1 bonus point for "exceeding expectations"

It works great from the start. It keeps tab of the pages I go to and ask to save the password. From thereon when I go to these pages I just scan my finger and I'm logged in.

It would be great if it could have a portable version that could be used wherever you go...You have to install the software to your PC. You can tote it around with your laptop. I've seen some laptops that comes with it integrated.

Now I can create better cryptic passwords and not worry about forgetting them.

Finally!!! A bulletproof fingerprint reader for the Mac!!!

I've always envied my PC friends when it comes to biometric options... until I got my Eikon.

Now, whenever the authentication screen on the Mac pops up, I get Eikon's fingerprint auth screen instead and I can just swipe my finger and go on my merry way. Their programmers also adopted the Mac minimalist ethic and implemented the Protector Suite consistent with the Mac "it just works!" experience.

They've been also very proactive and have continued updating their Mac software solution. v1.2 just came out June 25, (FYI, v1.0 came out Feb 2008), and UPEK continues to improve Protector Suite. In the latest iteration, they now even display the icon and the name of the app requesting authentication. Nice!

Upek is also very responsive. I was pleasantly surprised when they contacted me when I sent some suggestions thru their support webform.

Now if only they'd come up with an Expresscard solution so I can have the fingerprint reader onboard just tucked away in the little used Expresscard slot on my MBP and just pop the fingerprint sensor whenever I need it...

If you are looking to purchase a finger print reader, this is a great product. It is well built and heavier then it appears. The photos might make you think it's made of cheap plastic but that couldn't be further from the truth. I've used other readers that just take a snapshot of your finger print. The Eikon does not, instead it scans the lines in your finger print and creates a mathematical file so your finger print is never stored. Rather then placing your finger on the device, you slide your finger across the scanner. A few times the scan didn't read, perhaps I swiped my finger to quickly or something but 99% of the time it works pefectly.

I use the product for simplifying my login needs for programs and websites. You can scan all your fingers and you can assign a specific program or website to load to an individual finger (IE: scanning my middle finger opens up Quicken). It only loads the program though so if the program is password protected, you will still have to scan your password finger to login. Nice feature but could be better had they allowed the program to open and execute the login all in one swipe. Besides programs and websites, you can store credit card info and you can of course use the reader to login to windows. Multiple users can create thier own database so this would be nice for people who share a computer or for a business where users have separate logins/passwords.

I rate this product a 4 star for one reason only... the software. Don't misunderstand, the software is great and has nice features. Once you create your database of programs/website logins, you can actually use the bookmarks in the software to login simplifying life a little more.

I'm 40 y/o and have no problems with this finger print scanner myself personally.

But I bought this unit after moving my computer into a common area with the hopes my (70 something) mom could use it. The theory was that when I need the computer, I just walk up and swipe my finger. When my mom needs it, she does the same.

Ah yes, but plans don't always work out the way you expect.

I enrolled my mom's prints, and have spent hours demonstrating how to scan her finger - no soap. While the device seems OK with my mom's prints whilst enrolling her, when it comes time to actually use the damn thing it's failure about 19 out of 20 times. I've re-enrolled her. No help. I tried it again. No go.

Then I tried the same deal with her boyfriend. We enrolled him with ease, but for whatever reason, it doesn't like his prints. I re-enrolled his prints twice more - fail fail!

OK so here I am with a purchase that I made to make my life easier, but it's been a real headache. Not only does this product not work with my mom and her boyfriend, but the software makes it 5 times harder to log in traditionally.

To log in my mom must click "other credentials", then "switch user", then "switch user" again (because twice is twice as much fun???!!!), then click on her user-name, and then enter her password. Before, all she had to do is click switch user, chose her user-name and enter password (what we were trying to avoid with this "solution").

So in summery from my experience, this finger print scanner is good only if you are under 70 and perhaps somewhat tech savvy. If not, wait until this sort of thing gets to prime time quality.
