Works well, and will not break no matter how many times you drop it on the floor. I have had this for over a year, and I have dropped it (accidentally) at least 20 times onto a hardwood floor- I am amazed it still works well. Would be even better if it came with a stand. Setting it up to work with my Windows 8 computer involved just plugging it in to the USB port.

The scanner did feel like it was cheaply made and very light
By The May's
I have a lot of experience with handheld scanners and I must admit I was very skeptical about the quality and functionality of this scanner. I had previously used a lot of scanners that were expensive and of dubious reliability. I purchased this for my small corporate team to perform quality checks and I figured the price was cheap so if it didn't work then we wouldn't be out of pocket much.
On arrival I immediately plugged the scanner in to an open USB port and it was instantly recognized and off I Went scanning everything. I was scanning EAN, JAN UPC codes to my hearts content. No problems whatsoever. The scanner did feel like it was cheaply made and very light. I would have preferred something that was a little heavier but it worked without any problems. My previous scanners were heavier and more expensive, and here is where that becomes a negative. If the scanner drops and they do get some heavy use, when they drop they tend to tug on the cable which causes issues or the screen cracks making the scanner useless. To test it I just dropped it and it just bounced. No damage to the screen just a small scuff to the plastic. I expect this scanner to last a while and if it doesn't oh well I'll spend another $17 and get another one.

Get it - Plug it in - Use it
By Ron Morgan
I purchased this reader as part of an effort to upgrade our home computer security. With cyber crime running rampant these days I decided it was time to use very powerful passwords with a password manager. The weak link, though, is the master password to access the account. Now I can use an extremely hard and cryptic master password by simply turning it into a bar code and reading it with this scanner. There was no setup involved... I simply plugged in the USB cable and it worked. And for less than $19.00 on Amazon Prime you can't go wrong.
