Fingerprint Reader Why or Why Not?

I am thinking about buying a fingerprint reader and I would like to know the pros and the cons.

Pros:

Can be useful with the right Win 7 compatible software - log in to forms/passwords.

Cons:

Your finger can be cut off to gain access, and even with a password, your system can be compromised, so options will need to adjusted in the software.

i install biometrics readers on high security areas and vaults in RL. The high end units work well but most are just toys and not worth the effort. Be careful.

I assume you want it to control computer log in for convenience not high-level security and for that most mid level readers would do. I'll check some out and get back to you.
