Cons

Best Uses

Comments about Symbol LS2208 LS2208-SR20007R-UR:

Good scanner for the money. Used in a small but expanding specialty clothing seller. Much better than the scanner that came with the Point of Sale system that we recently purchased. Could use a better instruction booklet, but information is readily available online, so no worries.

Comments about Symbol LS2208 LS2208-SR20007R-UR:

We're a small retail store and use this scanner for our Point of Sale system. Our old Symbol scanner died after ten years. At first we bought another brand but it did not work well at all. We returned the other brand (to another company) and bought this one here at Bar Codes Inc. We love this scanner. It's much faster and works perfectly. I would recommend it. We like that it has a trigger for hand held use. It scans quickly and is very reliable.

Best Uses

  • Inventory management
  • Point of sale

Comments about Symbol LS2208 LS2208-SR20007R-UR:

We use the LS2208 barcode scanner with the hands free stand at each of our Point of Sale workstations. This gives the sales associates the opportunity to quickly scan in a customer number and start a sales transaction. Eliminates errors and confusion! Does not draw from the computers resources, and setting each up was a breeze. We have started using these to input data into our Access database for inventory and hope to incorporate them so we can cut down on time consuming data entry for other applications. We have not had any problems or failures with these scanners since purchasing them a year ago. These were recommended to us by our BarcodesInc representative. Current total of scanners in use: 30.

Well made, but missing essential barcode

By Ken

Verified Buyer

Pros

  • Easy to configure
  • Plug and Play

Cons

  • Missing printed barcodes

Best Uses

Comments about Symbol LS2208 LS2208-SR20007R-UR:

This is a well made product. Easy to configure. All I had to do is to scan in the configuration barcodes. Only I wish that all available config barcode options are printed and included in the box. But instead, I had to download documents from the website, figure out which to print, !! and make sure that they do not get scaled from the software that prints them. A simple booklet with all config barcode options costs a dime for the entire package. But overall, I like the product.
