Great to find this forum. I am a newbie, and several terms confuse me. If any one would be so kind:
1.) What is CCD? Is it one type of scanner, or are all scanners CCD?
2.) Understand the differences between connections. USB is the easiest to use. I am assuming that a keyboard wedge is just as easy, and functions in the same manner, you just have to have an available PS2 port (Which laptops don't necessarily have)
3.) Surprised at all the different price points. I need a scanner to scan a UPC number, and enter it into a filemaker database. I can program the Filemaker database.
I'm not looking for anything special am I? Just a basic scanner will do for this? I am looking at the Symbol 2208.
Thanks for you insights!
