Hi all,

I had quite a few problem with ID readers and OCR and I've decided to buy new ones for my office.

I have checked a few models which seems fine but I'd like to have some feedbacks from people who know them, can you help?

3. CamCard: https://www.camcard.com/

Thank you for your help!

Although I don't use any card readers, I thought I'd give you my opinion on how I usually pick a company to go with when I can't seem to pick one over the other and products are similar and cost about the same.  I usually contact their customer service line to find out how knowledgeable they are about their products and find out what their turn around time is for technical support and what their policy is on returns and or RMA's for non working devices.  You can really judge a company by these things and how it will go for you in the future if you were to have any issues with the products they offer.  And as a side note it looked to me like the camcard people are at least up to date on using cloud storage (not that that would be a deal breaker on any of the other systems)
