Damaged Barcodes are a Reality

In a perfect world, every barcode arrives undamaged and unblemished. Unfortunately, we don't live in that world. More often than not, codes are imperfect and difficult to read.

Below are a number of broken and damaged barcodes you can test out for yourself, with SocketCam. If broken codes are part of your reality, the C820 is good, but the C860 is better! And, of course, you can't go wrong with our hardware scanners.

Compare the C820 vs. C860

Watch the C820 and C860 scan the damaged barcodes below in a head-to-head battle.
