Have looked at a load of barcode scanners on Amazon and Ebay, mostly CCD LED ones in the sub £40 price bracket.
Was about to order a £20 CCD LED model but then saw this was laser and didn't look any worse, so decided I would risk the extra £10 for a laser model.

When it came I was surprised to find a stand in the box. It's not listed on the specs so I'm not sure if everyone ordering this product will get one, but it was a welcome bonus. Mine came from supplier "Vairocana Group Inc" and I'd also note my scanner has a yellow coloured trigger, not a black one as in the photos.
The "Ascan" badge is very cheapy but the actual unit could be a lot worse in build quality when you take into consideration how much the main barcode manufacturers charge for their models. Connection is via a 2m(approx) USB cable with RJ45 connection at scanner end, and the unit installed quickly as a "HID Keyboard Device" on my Windows XP PC.
Like all the barcode scanners I have used it scans a code and then sends the code to the PC as if you had manually typed it on your keyboard. Therefore you have to have the cursor in the right place in the right application. Mine came set to scan a barcode and then send an "Enter" press so it moves to the next line, but you can change this to "Tab" or turn it off. Looking at the manual it is highly configurable, but as it currently seems to scan everything I throw at it I'm not planning on delving any further into the manual.

I use it for scanning serial numbers and part codes on IT equipment. So far it has scanned every one dimensional barcode I have shown it (Won't scan 2D barcodes obviously at this price).

Am a total technophobe and bought this for a very specific job (scanning a barcode into a spreadsheet). You literally just plug in the USB and go - couldnt be easier!

Very good product and excellent value for money. Works straight out of the box and reads everything I have shown it so far. Like the other reviewer, I haven't explored its many features, but right now I don't think I will need to. And yes, it does come with a stand, which isn't the prettiest of things but it is perfectly functional and is great for hands-free use. If you need to read 1-D barcodes and don't want to spend a lot of money, this is the ideal solution - highly recommended.

Good usb scanner, easily configured, works very well (tested under Linux, recognized as a USB keyboard as one can expect), comes with a stand. Only bad point: it claims to support more than 20 keyboards but only 4 are directly available in the booklet.

Just wanted to point out this works perfectly with Linux. No software to install or anything - plug into a USB port and you're away.

I was reluctant to buy this as the first barcode scanner for my small ecommerce business, based on the low price. Been using it for a few weeks now and I'm perfectly happy with it, so why pay more?

The products we sell have a mixture of very small (less than an inch long) barcodes and quite large ones (5 or 6 inch long). It's scanned them all without problems. We also have some under cellophane and this hasn't been a problem. The only times it hasn't worked perfectly is when scanning a label stuck to an irregular shaped surface, but this is understandable and with a little jiggling around it usually works.

A little info for anyone wishing to use it to interact with a web page: Place your cursor in a text field and scan the label - the number will appear in the text field straight away. I believe the scanner is set up by default to also initiate the form button/pressing of return button which will for instance immediately run a product search without doing anything else but scanning the label. Think you can change that though, but it's perfect for me.

Tip for web developers: use javascript to focus the cursor in your text field on each page reload. Then in theory the only thing you ever need to do is scan the label with no other interaction from the keyboard.

Overall, well chuffed!

Great little lazer scanner that works out of the box. Exceeded my expectations as far as build quality goes, it is robust and well made and a free stand in the box for hands free scanning! Great value for money.

Far far better than expected. Straight out the box and scanning within a minute. Used it for Music Magpie for a friend who is selling 3000 Cd's. From about 1 cd per 2 minutes by entering bar code manually to 10 cd's a minute with this scanner. I also tried product codes for other items using Google. Again flawless results. Scans from a few inches to about 1 foot reliably. I now understand how the device functions as it creates a text string as if entered by a keyboard. Feels good to use and at this price a remarkable bargain.

On the computer I bought this for it didn't initially work, however it did work on two others I tried, all 3 running Windows 7. When it works, you literally plug it in and hold a bar code in front of it, which it automatically scans and the number appears as if you'd typed it on the keyboard. On the computer it didn't work on, it beeped, but nothing appeared on the screen. After a bit of investigation, it turned out the driver hadn't installed properly, so in case anyone comes across this problem, this is what I did to fix it:

- Go to 'devices and printers' where you should see OKE PS2-USB V1.61
- Right click on that and goto properties
- Click on the hardware tab > change settings > Driver tab > update driver > browse my computer for driver software > let me pick from a list of device drivers on my computer
- Then select USB Input Device
It should then appear in Devices with a keyboard icon
