You know, I bought this product just because of the price, but it actually wasn't bad. The previous review is right, it doesn't come with a CD, and the manual is weak. However; you don't need a CD, and you don't really need a manual. I simply plugged it in to a USB port, scanned a code, and it 'typed' in the code in. So simple. It gets a little confused on smaller barcodes. All said and done, if you want an entry level barcode reader, this is your guy.
