As noted in the aricle, each manufacturer is supplying their own lingo. This causes issues such as the volume/area that you mentioned. Which is it? Go ask them!

Specs? What specs?

Not to be too picky here, but 2 of the items reviewed have "scan volumes" and 3 have "scan areas". All are epxressed as x by y. Hmmm... We are engineers here, right? :-)

Thanks, Caleb. These scanners look like fun. I've never used one -- only the 2D type. How user friendly are they, would you say? Also do you see them being used in electronics industry in any way?
