Accurate Flexible Reader

By MKD

from Dallas, TX

10/4/2014

Verified Buyer

Pros

  • Accurate
  • Double Heads
  • Fast

Cons

  • Cable Connection

Best Uses

  • Small Shop Retail

Comments about MagTek SureSwipe 21040145:

Fast and accurate reader. Good price. A little tight at first but cards slide through easily after about the first 15 swipes. The cable connection to the swipe could be more secure. This would only be an issue if the swipe is often handled rather than secured in place.

Comments about MagTek SureSwipe 21040145:

We use the readers in our fitness center to track gym usage and to verify that the person using the gym is a student or employee. We have several offices that need to track student visits that also use the reader. Works well as an input device directly to Excel & Access. We also use them with laptops to track attendance at big student events like orientation and career fairs.

  • No driver needed
  • Swipes every time
  • Windows plug play

Cons

  • Velcro Use foam tape

Best Uses

Comments about MagTek SureSwipe 21040145:

I used this MagTek swiper as a software developer to integrate card swiping into our software. I needed a card swiper that had an ActiveX control that was 32 bit and 64 bit compatible for all versions of Microsoft Windows. The HID interface MagTek models and their ActiveX control work on all versions of Windows, firing swipe events but not freezing other apps like the MiniMag Duo KB model. Because the ActiveX is a 32 bit interface, I compiled my interface module as an x86 32 bit application to write an encrypted cache file that my 64 bit app can sweep and pick up and process to banking institutions. Highly recommended for programmers needing a rock solid interface. I tried several manufacturers and chose the MagTek HID models.
