My friend Mike has a half dozen new-in-box-but-box-is-damaged scanners. The
scanners are fine, not even discolored. I have an Intermec from him that
reads all the 2D codes and some of the 3D types, though not UPS shipping
labels. But it works fine on WD hard disk drive serial and model number
barcode tags, and everything else I tried, including UPC codes and printed
paper barcode labels on PC parts.
We often slap mice and video cards on the copier so we can have a paper
record to be entered en mass into the asset tracking system. Today I
scanned **a photocopy** of the bottom of some mouses and video cards and
was able to read all but one of them.
Some Intermec, some PSC, some other brands, and I think they're all
keyboard wedge style. All the cables re included for a machine with a PS/2
style small DIN keyboard connector. They are mostly hand-held with a
trigger style. They are programmed by printing out selected pages from the
PDF manual or printed copy and scanning them in sequence. They are
substantial commercial grade devices, not in the least flimsy.
I think he's used them on a machine with a USB keyboard simply by plugging
the scanner into the PS2 port. The keyboard connector on the scanner's
cable then gets plugged into nothing.
I'm sure he'd sell you any number of them for under $50 each, although
you'd have to ask him yourself.
I'll send you some contact info privately.
