  1. It is interesting but why would someone pay for this more than 200$ when he can buy cheap mobile phone, install free datamatrix decoder and connect it to computer?

  2. @Prokka The answer to your question is in the number of ticket holders per minute that can be processed and the robustness of the device.

  3. This barcode reader is essentially a webcam built in the plastic box.

    Decided to go the Denso-Wave wedge hand held scanner instead – cost twice as much but works 10 times better.
