Symbol LS2208 Reviews

POSGuys Rating:

"The LS2208 features an aggressive laser-based scanner. Though there is a stigma that laser-based scanners aren’t as durable as their CCD counterparts, Symbol has gone to great lengths to eliminate this discrepancy. The LS2208’s durability and aggressive scan engine make it ideal for medium to high volume scanning environments, such as retail, industrial, and health care."

The LS2208 is one of the most popular laser scanners to copy but some of the generic competitors are so bad that you may as well hand key in all of your barcodes. A scanner is supposed to increase accuracy and speed up workflow, not slow you down.
