The Review:

The packaging, is a cardboard box with the scanner wrapped in bubble wrap on the box there is a inventory label ment just for the stock crew The scanner does have an identifying mark on it which is the TEEMI logo on the top of the scanner This scanner gets the job done with smartphones replacing regular paper coupons and credit cards in my opinion… You can read the best reviews found at theguidr.com

The scanner does  come with an instruction pamphlet  in English with different modes just like a regular barcode scanner. The scanner has a light inside the scanner when you press the button to scan the light comes on in case you are scanning a phone or a spot when there isn’t too much light near the barcode or QR Code.   If you own a business you need one of these even if you don’t have POS system keeping a spreadsheet of the items you have in stock will keep your customer base coming back to your shop and opens up another world with being able to make and start scanning QR CODES  Something I wished that this unit had a replaceable battery You also  get a MICRO-USB  cable to charge or you can use your own there is no wireless dongle as the scanner just connects via bluetooth to transfer the info from the scanner to your computer

Conclusion:

So yes the scanner is expensive when compared to others out there , but is it even worth it? I would say yes if you want to keep accurate inventory without hiring another worker to do this job and having the ability to use QR CODES. Just an idea you could use QR codes instead of barcodes in your store The scanner is well made and it does have different modes where you can also read different UPC’s depending on what you want

PROS CONS
+Seems well made
+Perfect for any business owner or anyone who wants catalog books, dvds or any list+Able to scan smartphones+ Scans QR CODES
-wasn’t able to connect bluetooth with my iPhone but worked great with my macbook

 

 

UPDATE to what I said in the video about my phone not connecting to the scanner the company replied back and told me this….
