Comparing the Orbit 7190g and Genesis 7580g
Here is how we would compare…
- If you are scanning mostly screens, (digital coupons), and occasionally merchandise, we recommend the Genesis 7580g. You will find these readers in Starbuck’s and they have a large amount of digital scanning.
- If you are scanning mostly merchandise and occasionally screens, we recommend the new Orbit 7190g hybrid. Maybe you are just starting to scan digital coupons. The 7190g is your best option.
- And if you are scanning just merchandise we recommend the Orbit 7190g (the laser only version).
Don’t think of the Orbit 7190g as a cheap alternative to the Genesis. It’s not, but if you are doing a mix of reading barcodes on cell phones and on merchandise, stay with the 7580g.
