We have been using Metrologic for several years and have had no problems
with the handheld in a stand. We like the handheld because of the
flexibility. We currently use models MK9520-32A38 and MK9520-72A07.

We are preparing for go-live on Millennium in about a month, and are
looking for options for barcode scanners to be used when creating item
records. We currently use the Metrologic MH941 with a keyboard wedge,
and are a DRA "Classic" institution. Our barcodes are 13-digit CODABAR
Would these scanners be adaptable for use with Millennium, or do we
need to buy new scanners? Are there any special configuration needs
with Millennium? (FWIW, we are a Dell shop currently running Optiplex
GX280 (Intel) 2.8 GHz with 512 MB of RAM. We need scanners that can be
connected through USB ports.)
Also, when we bought these scanners, we were advised that handhelds
were less dependable than fixed, so we bought the fixed stand scanners.
However, I'm wondering if the technology has improved to the point that
we should be considering handhelds as well.
Apologies if this has been answered many times or is so basic as to
be a silly question.
Thanks for any help you can give.
