I need to order some barcode scanners and ive just seen the difference in price between Metrologic MK-9590 and Posiflex barcode scanners is quite high.
I have the Metrologic barcode scanners already in use in one location and there have been problems when trying to scan dump barcode labels.

I need to know the best barcode scanners - probably with fuzzy logic and if Posiflex are good enough

This is what I like in handheld barcode scanners: http://www.barcodesinc.com/symbol/ls2208.htm

I used to work in management in an MIS department at a major automotive supplier.  We used barcodes for all of our tracking and part picking in an industrial environment.  We used to use PSC scanners a lot but they were replaced with Symbol scanners.

Scanners are a funny thing though sometimes...I have had bouts with several different brands.

The PSC scanners we used were discontinued and replaced by the Motorola/Symbol ones.
