Make a Symbol barcode scanner work with Mac OS X
Authored by: leamanc on Mar 26, '10 07:12:43PM

We use the Symbol LS 4278 (link from where I buy them, CDW).

And no, the devs don't know anything special. They asked me to find something that could scan barcodes and barf out the output into a FileMaker Pro database field. I read good things about that model, bought one to try, and we've bought several since as we do more and more projects that include barcode scanning.

Edit: user cliffkujala also notes below that he uses the LS 4278. Maybe that model is just super Mac friendly? We also use a wired USB model that works well too, but I don't have that model number on hand.
