The Symbol LS9203i has the same great features plus some improvements over the original LS9203. The new louder beeper offers improved feedback even in the busiest environments. Power is increased from 70dBA to 85dBA translating to a volume more then twice that of the current product. Improved optics increase performance allowing higher density barcodes to be read (down to 4 mil). The LS9203i is still the best choice for basic, hands-free checkout scanning.
