Increase productivity and uptime with innovative scanning capabilities

The Symbol LS 4278 helps users increase productivity and cut costs while providing free movement throughout the workspace. Its unique array of productivity-enhancing features allow novice and advanced users to process items more rapidly and spend less time keying in data. The addition of Bluetooth wireless communications provides workers with the cordless freedom to move to large bulky items for scanning instead of risking injury from lifting heavy objects plus the ability to physically check all sides of a shopping cart for unscanned items. The LS 4278 communicates via Bluetooth to the cradle, which in turn connects to the host computer via a variety of connection interfaces, including USB, Keyboard wedge and RS-232.

The Symbol LS 4278 is also known as the Symbol Technologies LS 4278

BarcodesInc Symbol LS 4278 Review

Every manufacturer these days offers options for cordless scanners but the LS4278 offers a feature set that makes it a great fit for the retail POS as well as inventory or picking applications in the stockroom. Unlike most other cordless units, the LS4278 base is powered by the USB port of the device you are connected to. You can easily bring a laptop on a cart and this scanner to move around freely, but if you need a truly wireless option you would want to look at the Motorola MC55A. Likewise, if you need to communicate directly to a Smartphone or tablet via Bluetooth it is a simple scan of a programming code. Given how easily the LS4278 is to set-up and its flexibility to fit into many different applications, it is an excellent choice for anyone looking for a reliable cordless scanner.

Great Wireless Scanner

Comments about Symbol LS4278-TRBU0100ZWR:

We are a wireless store with 8 locations and replaced our old bluetooth scanners with this product. I was hesitant at first, because my old bluetooth scanner didn't have the range I needed. A salesperson from barcodesinc ensured me that this product had better range than what I was currently using, and she couldn't have been more correct. We have been very happy and will buy these again when we add more locations.

Cons

Best Uses

  • Inventory

Comments about Symbol LS4278-TRBU0100ZWR:

Although the Xenon 1902 performed better than this, the price was just better on this product and it still got the job done. For reading 1D barcodes I would recommend this. For 2D I would go with the Xenon 1902.

It is a great product! We work in a cold climate, since we are a Wholesale Meat distributor. We have to scan every barcodes on the boxes in the fridge, and it work really well! Also, I like that the battery life is very good before it needs to be charge! I really don't have anything negative to tell toward that product because it works really well! It scans really fast too, compared to the other scanner we had, which is a great thing!!
