Cipher Lab 1560 Series Reviews

POSGuys Rating:

The corded version of this scanner gets three stars as it is a basic scanner that works as expected, no advanced that stand out. The bluetooth cordless version of this scanner gets ONE star based on multiple end users having had problems getting the scanner to pair with the base. The pairing procedure is slightly more involved than other scanners but also seems to be vulnerable to errors during the setup process that requires extensive support to fix. (Updated 11/2022)
