BarcodesInc Motorola DS6878-SR Review

The DS6878-SR offers aggressive cordless 2D scanning and is just as easy to use as a regular tethered scanner. One of the unique options of this scanner is that it can run off of the PC USB port. Without the need for a separate power supply you can easily move the cradle anywhere and will have less cable clutter. The DS6878-SR is a great match for the point of sale or any other age verification application since you can easily read product codes as well as the PDF417 code on driver’s licenses. It is designed for retail and office environments but if a more rugged option is needed you would be best served by the Motorola DS3578. If you need to add 2D scanning to your business or have a requirement down the road to do so the DS6878-SR offers ease of use and flexibility at an affordable cost.

Image Scanner Performance

By Threecans

from Minneapolis, MN

5/26/2014

Verified Reviewer

Pros

  • Accurate
  • Fast

Cons

  • Specific Fonts Required

Best Uses

  • Standard Fonts

Comments about Motorola DS6878-TRBU0100ZWR:

We needed an image scanner to collect tax stamp information from Cigarettes. This image scanner was the best option. The problem is that the tax stamps are not a standard font and is often at the mercy of the source printer. So a "B" can be interpreted as "B", "8", "0" or "D". If the stamp were a standard, readable text, this scanner would work perfectly. The accuracy on standard fonts or text was in the 90% range. On the tax stamp, the accuracy was less than 3%. I would not recommend this scanner in a case where the font or text was variable or of poor quality. However, if the font is standard and clear, this is a good scanner.

  • Takes To Long To Scan
  • Very Fussy Scanning

Best Uses

  • Slow Work

The color and design are nice. However, the scanner is too fussy on the bar codes. It also depends on how close you are to the bar code.

Great perfomance, but at a cost

By Ops Mgr

from MA

10/7/2013

Verified Buyer

Pros

  • 2D
  • Functional
  • Programmable
  • Wireless

Cons

  • 1d Reader
  • Pricey / Poor Value

Best Uses

Comments about Motorola DS6878-TRBU0100ZWR:

Used for scanning/tracking items during manufacture of Medical Devices. Easy to install default parameters accross both wireless and wired scanners. Ability to use multi-function mode for scanning multiple barcodes of different types simultaneously. The one major con is the 1D reader. although this is higher resolution and better/faster scanning, with smaller pitch Code 128 it struggles to read consistently.
