Tesco Express: self service check out

Tesco is experimenting with self service check outs. It recently introduced it in one of its Express outlets in UK with a set of four check outs with just one person overseeing it. Yet another way to cut costs. Not sure, if shoppers prefer that convenience or  if it would be faster as it claimed to be. Either way Asda indicated it is not going to follow suit.

I dont mind it as long as the machine can easily scan my code and the automated machine keeps its volume low. I hate when that machine started screaming at me last time at a Home Depot store almost scolding me to "keep the product in a bag"....well hell...I will do it...give me a break...even my mom never shouted at me like that!
