I just like the name. UltraScan. Like it should be fighting dudes in rubber suits over a scale-model Tokyo. And it’s a new scanner only from POSGuys.com and totally great for low to medium volume retail establishments.

The POSGuys.com UltraScan laser barcode scanner, to use its full name, is a laser barcode scanner on the cheap. And that’s not to say it’s a cheap scanner, just inexpensive. It’s got a 12″ scan range on 100% UPC barcodes, which is 99% of what retail stores end up scanning. And, pretty fanciful, it can scan inverted barcodes without having to set any configuration. That’s a lot more rare than you’d expect but still pretty rad.

Other fun facts, this is a REALLY light barcode scanner. The cable probably accounts for 90% of the weight, so extended use isn’t going to cause arm problems. We also dropped it a bunch and it seemed to survive 12-foot drops no sweat. But that’ll be in the soon-to-be-released video. And outtakes.

We’re trying to aim the scanner (hah pun) at people who need something more aggressive than our entry level & contact scanners, but don’t need all the bells and whistles that make medium volume and high volume scanners so expensive.
