Honeywell 3800g Reviews

POSGuys Rating:

Honeywell’s Adaptus Scan Technology is a force with which to be reckoned. While most scanners in the retail and light industrial class scan relatively quickly and with a moderate amount of robustness to dense/damaged barcodes, the 3800g is aggressive enough to scan almost anything you throw at it.
