The USB (Universal Serial Bus), HID Keyboard Emulation, Full Size Swipe Reader is a compact magnetic stripe card reader, which conforms to ISO standards. The Reader is compatible with the PC series of personal computers or any device with a USB interface. A card is read by sliding it, stripe down and facing the LED side, through the slot either forward or backward. A LED (Light Emitting Diode) indicator on the Reader panel provides the operator with continuous status of the Reader operations. The reader emulates a USB Human Interface Device (HID) keyboard. This allows host applications designed to acquire card data from keyboard input to seamlessly acquire the card data from the USB swipe reader.

Strengths: Works like a champ!
Weakness: Only the operator! (that's me :) )
I'm a programmer, and I must say that MagTek card readers are a joy to work with. They're so simple and efficient. The only mis-haps came from partially swiped cards, effectively user-error.
