POSGuys Review Information

As the leaders in the POS Market, we here at POSGuys.com work hard to maintain our expertise regarding point of sale equipment, such as barcode scanners, receipt printers, cash drawers, and more. We also believe it is our duty to the customer to test the equipment we sell, making sure that manufacturer claims are reinforced or challenged. Our POS Reviews section breaks down our testing process and lets you know which barcode scanners have the greatest light resistance, which keyboards survive the nastiest spills, and which mobile computers can withstand excessive damage.
