I bought this scanner to work with Movie Collector (the program from Collectorz.com). I wanted the functionality of a barcode scanner to make it quicker to catalogue my DVD collection, but I didn't want to pay 120 for the scanner they advertise on their site.
I ordered the Acan USB scanner having read the user reviews and it just worked out of the box. It doesn't come with any software and I haven't looked at the manual - I just plugged it in, Windows installed it and it has worked with the software (Movie Collector) ever since. It has worked reliably since reading all barcodes I have tried it on and it looks well made. Excellent value.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not bad 5 Aug 2007
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.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not a laser scanner 13 Jan 2011
Verified Purchase
This item works OK but it has LED readers and needs to be placed in contact with the barcode to read it, my advice, spend a little more on a laser scanner that will read the barcode from about 6 inches away.

1.0 out of 5 stars Very poor 21 July 2011
I've owned one of these for just under a year. I bought it just to scan cds and books onto the Amazon site to list them for sale.

The manual is shockingly bad. It is by far the worst of anything I have ever bought, going way beyond just being written by someone for whom English is not the first language. I find it completely incomprehensible.

The scanner does work straight out of the box, but I have found that it only functions properly in the basic task I use it for sporadically. It is inclined to just not react at all to a barcode or to just scan in part of the barcode, however carefully the scanning is done.

I've persevered with it for nearly a year, but will probably throw it out soon and buy a different type of scanner.

5.0 out of 5 stars Easy to use bar scanner 16 July 2009
I bought this to use with the Book Collector database. I just plugged the USB connector in and within minutes it was ready to use - which is just as well because the manual provided is useless. It has saved me a lot of time and I would recommend this product.

5.0 out of 5 stars Does what it says 13 Dec 2009
I bought this scanner for use with the Movie Collector software so I could index my 400+ collection of DVD's and video's. It works with my XP and Mac. Don't bother installing any drivers - just plug it in and start using. Works perfectly and does what it says. One of the few pieces of technology that doesn't give you a headache.

5.0 out of 5 stars Simple and it works 11 Mar 2009
By markrof
This item does exactly what it says on the tin. It scans. Plugged it in and it worked straight away. Got a manual as well with some setting barcodes and they are brilliant.
Recommended if you want a barcode scanner than works and you do not pay too much for it.
