I need recommendations on a cross platform USB wired barcode scanner that has good scan reliability but does not have a huge price tag. Preferably pistol grip type with a trigger to prevent mis-scans of nearby labels, but one without trigger would work. Light industrial environment.
I've used the KY-DATALOGIC QUICKSCAN USB KIT (DATQD2130) for a few years now, was around $100 AUS at the time. I would check out the Datalogic range to see what's current - I suspect my model is no longer sold.
