the device works great, software needs tweaked.
on November 11, 2012
The bar code scanner it self is a great device. It works as advertised. The software needs to be tweaked a bit. Although I am unhappy about the report writing portion of the software needs tweaked. But other than that, I an generally pleased with the scanner. One good thing about the software is that you can scan multiple items and once you are done scanning your library, you can have the software go out to the net and get all the data on your movies, books, or music.
If there is a weakness with the software is that some of the fields don't export cleanly to excel. The report writer software has six fields that can be included in the report, but the field that describes the movie or book doesn't seem to be part of the report. I am still messing with it. I will either stumble on a fix for the report or find other software that works with the scanner.
