Which NFC reader would you recommend for reading NFC implants?
I've tried a few off-the-shelf NFC readers to read the implant in my hand, but I'm not terribly impressed with most of them. So far, I've tried:
- ACS122U: decent range, easy-to-find sweet spot, convenient.
- ACS122T: harder-to-find sweet spot, the reader must be on the skin, but if the device is attached somewhere convenient and with practice, it's usable.
- uTrust 4700 F: sort of meh: usable but not convenient.
- TWN4 Multitech aka TWN4 Mifare NFC: horrible. Poor range with a good NFC credit card, reads my implant once in a blue moon if I ram my hand forcibly against the shell and hit the sweet spot within a fraction of an inch. Totally unusable.
So far then, the best results I've had have been with the ACS devices. So I have a dozen going around the office and they do the job. I have a few other brands/models on order for evaluation, but I'm wondering which you would recommend for best range and easy, non-tricky hand placement.
