Desfire Smartcard Readers

Which brand/make DESFire Smartcard (with & with-out Keypad) Reader is asthetically good looking? (other than CEM Emerald)

Which DESFire reader gives maximum read-range for vehicle access (barrier) (other than combi-card /RFID reader)

Hello, With DESfire alone, your max read range is less than 12 cm (~4.75 in). If you seek longer range, it's got to paired with RFID or some combo UHF type of transmitter.

thanks Brain, any advice on aesthetically good looking/stylish DESFire readers?
