Reiner SCT cyberJack RFID comfort smart card reader device (USB 2.0) Black (Personal Computers)

Customer Review

The card reader I bought for use with HBCI and the new identity card.
It is currently the only recommended by BSI device which supports all functions of the new ID card incl. The qualified signature.

The unit is supplied with a base made of metal, making a total solid impression. The base is provided with two rubber pads that give a good slip resistance on flat surfaces the device. On the back is located in a recess of the connection for the mini-USB connector. Two USB cable with 30cm or 120cm are also included.
On the positive side is still the two-line, backlit display, which can be adjusted via the cyberJack Device Manager optimally adapted to the personal needs.
The design could be best described as unremarkable, designate straightforward and functional. Overall, I think it's a complete success.

The attachment of the cable is a little fiddly, but needs to be done only once. The cable is then fixed in a cable guide on the rear panel, which also serves as a strain relief for the connector.
One should as already mentioned in other reviews, make absolutely sure that the plug snaps into place. Only then a secure contact and a faultless transmission is ensured.

The installation went smoothly under Windows 7 64bit. On the installation CD with the latest drivers were already included. However, one should necessarily comply with the said order by the manufacturer. So if necessary, first download the latest drivers, install drivers before connecting the device. Plug and Play installation is not supported.

The card reader supports both contactless (eg NPA) and contact cards. There are two bays. The rear is actually intended for contactless RFID card as the NPA. The card access number (CAN) If you used this slot with the new ID card face down on the new ID that is required for most functions. This small but annoying shortcoming can be easily circumvented, however: the NPA is also recognized in the front slot for contact cards from your device. In this case, the CAN remains legible on the document.

The use of the device designed to easily substantially. The reader is correctly recognized by all applications, the steps and the inputs on the unit are mostly self-explanatory.
Small flaw here is in my view the keyboard. The keys are even for larger hands easy to use, but sometimes they get stuck in depressed state. The device then denies any further input. Positive here is that this can not lead to incorrect entries or malfunctions in applications because the device blocks the data transmission for use if it can not be executed correctly.
If there is indeed previously caused problems in use, they were always due to various quirks of AusweisApp. Here to provide to 1.10 in February remedy an update.
With all other applications, the card reader is working smoothly.

Conclusion: A total of successful, versatile card reader. He is the first choice for use with the new identity card for me. Keyboard and USB port to tarnish something otherwise very good impression for a (half) star deduction.
