Default Radioshack Pro-18 was on overstock

Got an email alert from OS today at 4:34am, obviously i was sleeping.

They had the Pro-18 again. I go online at 7am when i saw my email to order and it was already out of stock.

i mean are there people out there going on a shopping spree on those scanners. That was quick. I didn't get one but I see that people sell them for over $300 online. All I need is 1 !!!!!!!!!!!!

I need a relief scanner for my BCP436

Overstock is just a tease, I mean they probably put 20 of them out and someone bought all 20 of them at once and is going to sell them at $250 a piece.

You know who you are

No, I'm a night owl. I figured they'd been gone for a long while.

I would think it would only come with the user manual and the scanner like all RS scanners.I have never received any software when buying RS scanner. I always had to buy software and cables seperately. Others can chime in

One that I got did. However, the other one had a cable but no software CD. But for some odd reason, I got an extra belt clip on that one.

Mine came with the I-scan software disk and programming cable.All pro-18 scanners were supplied with this as standard.

The PRO-18s were different. While my PRO-197 didn't come with software, software was included with my PRO-18. I can't say if all the Overstock units, which might be display models or customer returns, will have the software packaged with them. But they should.

Also want to add that the USB cable is included.
