Editorial Reviews

Jane's Review: Should I buy this product?

Jane's Review

Yes! I recommend this bar code scanner based on its brand popularity. Let's go over the reasons why buying this bar code scanner now is a good idea, and also things to consider before you decide on this item.

1. Esky is one of the best selling, well known bar code scanner brand!

Esky is one of the best selling brands among other bar code scanner brands. I found some YouTube videos that talk about this product, which means this is a widely known product/brand. I have attached the videos above and links in the additional research section down below, so don't forget to watch and read those!

One thing to be careful about here is that I'm not verifying if this product's maker is a household name or not. This section is more focused on whether this is proven enough by its consumers, whether people actually love this product.

2. This bar code scanner has okay reviews on the internet

Some people have a great experience with a product, while some are unlucky and get a defected item and have to go through the whole process of returning them. Since people have different experiences about a product due to various reasons, don't read too much into one good or bad review. Reading multiple reviews with different ratings can help you picture how good/bad the product generally is.

This bar code scanner has moderatereviews on the internet, and based on current trends, it's likely that people will like this bar code scanner more a week later. I summarized what fans and haters say about this product above in the good/ok/bad table, so don't forget to read those since they paint the whole picture! And of course, if you want to read more detailed reviews, many of them are on Amazon!See More Reviews on AmazonSee More Reviews on Amazon

3. The price might go up, so buy now if you need this!

image/svg+xml Highest Price Lowest Price $23.99 $12.99

Price is one of the most important factors in making a purchase decision. I analyzed the price of this product in four parts: its recent price change, when it was most expensive/cheapest, its price volatility, and a price prediction I made, just in case you want to wait.

First off, let's talk about its recent price change. This product became unavailable to purchase, so it's hard to tell. However, the last price change observed between May 26, 2020 and May 28, 2020 was a 20.01% price increase. Since this product is currently unavailable, you might want to check out the list of similar products I gathered in the similar products section!

Next, we need to look at its highest price and lowest price. Historically, the highest price point for this bar code scanner was $23.99, and the lowest price point was $12.99. The current price is lower than it has ever been. This is definitely the best time to purchase!

What about its availability and price volatility? This is another aspect we have to dig into before buying something. This product is currently unavailable so I can't really endorse its availability, sadly. If you plan to repeatly purchase this item, I would suggest looking for a similar product or a seller who has this product with better availability! In addition, I've seen a small amount of price movement with this product. From what I've seen, the price is likely to move up or down by an average of 5.08% at a time.

Considering all this, will the price go up or down in a week? I know it's currently unavailable, but if this becomes available a week later, based on past price points, I expect the price to be $16.89 a week from now. It might be best to purchase as soon as possible before the price becomes too high.

4. Manufacturer has generally positive reviews on their other products

The maker of a product is another factor you want to definitely consider before you buy anything. What if there is a piece missing or there is some defect in the product? With anything you buy online, there is a small chance of this happening. But don't worry too much, because Amazon has an amazing 30-day refund policy (Amazon❤️). Still, you want to make sure that the manufacturer or the seller has been helpful in resolving this kind of problem and/or has been helpful to its customers about general product inquiries. The manufacturer of this product, Esky, has generally positive reviews on the internet. It's generally a good sign if the manufacturer has good reviews overall. If your purchase decision heavily involves how well they make their products and treat their customers, and if you like this product, I'd go with this product!

5. There are other options, but don't look further if you're looking for the cheapest product

image/svg+xml Esky Other similar brands: Zebra/Motorola Symbol Symbol Vcall Motorola Solutions

I found 5 brands that have similar products like this one: Zebra/Motorola Symbol, Symbol, Vcall, Motorola Solutions, and the same brand as this product. 'If you're looking for a cheaper alternative, then don't look further! this is your product! Among its alternatives, it's the cheapest!If you're looking for a bar code scanner with best reviews, a product from Zebra/Motorola Symbol gets the best score on the internet. If your primary concern is whether the product is popular and well known, a similar product from Symbol I linked below is a better option. I linked all the similar products in the similar products section so please check them out! Or you can check other similar products on Amazon, too.
