Can anyone reccomend a good barcode scanner

(pref Wireless)in the UK that doesn't require proprietary software.

The ones I used were the very basic wired ones that used the USB input. Sort of like this -

...but without a power supply. It used the USB for power.. the exact models I used are not on there and I don't recall the names but I think they are all pretty much the same TBH


That site has got PDF's for all the products that tell you everything you need to know though..

Is there a particular model you use and like?


I have never had to use one, and would hate to spend money on something that is awkward to use.

Hi David,


Just thought I would throw this in to add to the great info from Kid.


We use the Symbol LS2208 shown @ the link below. This has worked very well for us :)
