Purchasing cheap barcode scanners from online stores

We receive many requests for support on Barcode Scanners that have been purchased from online stores. There are quite a few cheap unknown brands of scanners that are available lately from various online merchants.

There seems to be a lack of support from most of the online stores. Barcode Scanners and Printers can be quite complex when certain configurations need to be programmed into these units.

Its not possible for us to help clients that have bought these scanners or printers. We only deal with the Major brands like Datalogic, Honeywell, Cipherlab, Argox and Zebra. All the Barcode Scanners and Label Printers come from reputable distributors that have footprints across South Africa. All warranty and out of warranty repairs are done locally.

We only offer technical support or advice on the devices purchased from us.

Please consider the above before deciding where to purchase your Barcode Products. We offer personal support – Henry is available to chat about what model will best suite your needs or application.

Our best selling General Purpose Barcode Scanner has to be the Datalogic Quickscan Lite QW2120. The scanner comes with a scan stand and USB Cable and carries a 3 Year Warranty.

Datalogic QW2120 Barcode Scanners

The QW2120 has Datalogics “Green Spot” Technology which throws a green circle of light on the barcode after a successful read. When inserted in the Scan Stand it becomes auto sensing. This means the scanner becomes a Hands Free device, you just need to pass the barcode in front of the scanner to be scanned.

The Datalogic Quickscan Lite QW2120 USB Kit normally sells for about R650 including vat, depending on the exchange rate at the time the scanners are brought in to South Africa.
