First, the handheld unit comes with a cable that has a USB connector at one end and what seems to be an RJ45 (LAN) connector at the other. The documentation doesn't give any description of this cable. The problem is that once you hook the RJ45 into the base of the handheld unit, it isn't so easy to depress the plastic lever on the connector to help you remove it.The head of the connector is buried very deep inside the socket in the handle, so access is difficult. You need either to leave the cable connected, or else be very careful about separating it. In my situation, leaving it connected is an invitation to one of my cats to chew the cable; so I figure that sooner or later this connector will get broken from the stress of being removed over and over again, possibly making the device hard to use. I'm thinking of buying a spare cable just in case -- but for that reason it's frustrating that no spec for the cable comes with this item.
The more general issue perhaps won't affect you if you're wiser than me. The point is, it's easy to have a utopian dream of how much work you'll save with a bar code reader -- but actually, it won't necessarily speed up a process a whole lot if you still have a bunch of manual input steps.
I bought this item a few weeks before moving, in order to help me inventory my library: probably 4,000-5,000 volumes at my home, and another 500-1,500 in storage. I'd already gotten about half-way through using just some bibliographical software with an online lookup function, which can import data from Amazon sites around the world once you input the ISBN. Problem is, the imported data doesn't include city of publication, and sometimes has a date different from what the copyright page says. Plus, there's some other info I add (such as whether the book is at home, office or in rented storage).
You can now see coming what I could not: basically this barcode reader is a cool way of entering the ISBN, but it doesn't mean I can just zap my way through a whole bookshelf in a matter of minutes. I still need to do all those other data confirmation/entry steps. Plus, there are three or four clicks I need to do to get the cursor back into the right slot before I zap. On top of which, a lot of my books are old enough not to have a bar code, meaning I have to enter the ISBN manually from the copyright page anyway. Bottom line: I estimate I save only 10%-15% of the time it took me to do things the old-fashioned way, a few seconds per book (though since this gizmo is still pretty new in my hands, the zapping is still sort of fun).
Maybe it's par for the course that someone with so many books should be a utopian dreamer. And maybe I'll eventually figure out a different sequence of steps so I can shave off a little more time. All in all, though: this reader works pretty well, but despite the low price I recommend you get it only if you really understand how it can help you.
A previous scanner I bought was of little use to me because you had to use the software that came with it. This scanner acts just like a keyboard. When you scan a bar-code, it basically types out the code, and presses enter. The software you are using doesn't know the difference between the scanner and a keyboard, so this scanner will work with lots of different software. The software I used to catalog my books was a web application, so it wouldn't have been able to utilize special hardware, but it worked great with this scanner.
I wish I had found something like this years ago.
I am an avid cook. I have about 25 to 30 "Signature Dishes" that I like to make on a fairly regular basis. What I wanted is a way to keep track of everything in my pantry, refrigerator and freezer for the ingredients I use on a regular basis. That way, every time I design my grocery list, I wouldn't need to do a physical search of the pantry, refrigerator or freezer. I could just look it up using a barcode
However, I also had to find a POS software program. I decided to try QuickBooks POS. This program is 10 times more that what I need, but I found it to be "user friendly." In the last week I have scanned in about everything in my household that I use on a regular basis. Everything from anti-freeze to Windex and all my cooking ingredients.
The moment I plugged this unit into my computer using Window 7, it set itself up without a problem. It took me some time to figure out the software I downloaded. But right now everything is going smoothly and it will save me a lot of time.
This is going to help me IMMENSELY when I make up a grocery list. But it is still in the experimental phase.
