Save your money


Hmmmmmm. Can't think of any.

Very disappointing & frustrating. I even read the reviews that had an average rating of 4. Must have been submitted by the manufacturer. I had to edit every card and often to ridiculous levels. Every entry needs to be checked because anything can be...

Theoretically works with Win7


If you're going to be running these with XP systems, go for it. The price is certainly right, and depending on what kind of software you're running on you may be just fine with these for a couple of years (until XP support ends). I've not tried these...

We've had several of these units working well for years on Windows XP machines running browser-based medical software, scanning via an ActiveX control that just used it as a TWAIN scanner.

While a Windows 7 compatible update to the software is available and Microsoft says that the scanner will be recognized by Windows 7 without any additional software needed, it's recognizing it as an A6 flatbed scanner and ONLY their software is...

good, not great


If you are a proficient typer, you are better off entering the information yourself (I timed it, and it took me 5 minutes less to do it myself with 10 business cards than scanning and correcting 10 business cards). If your a slow typer, this product is...

Small size, looks good, good images from scanner, scans quickly.

Doesn't appropriately categorize information, lots of spelling mistakes, lots of missed information, syncronized with Outlook okay but there were some data issues (categories repeated instead of one category with multiple contacts in it). Customer...

PenPower WorldCard Color(SWOCR0012)


really easy to install and use (windows XP) well worth the cost.

easy to install, accurate scan

sometimes a business card gets stuck, the data is put into the wrong field up on scanning (rarely).

Just got mine


good buy for $100. worth the investment.

Very simple to use. It has an auto mode that lets you scan card after card. Once you are finished (i scanned 110 cards) you can review each card and edit before saving. I like the feature that lets you put the mouse cursor over the information and it...

It has trouble with Ph.D. For example, Joe Smith, Ph.D. enters the Ph.D. in the title field.

Not as good as expected


Small, no external power needed (USB-powered)

Very poor software. Hard to use. the scanner has lot of problems if you try to use it with other software like adobe acrobat or even windows in-built scanning software. VERY VERY hard to find drivers if CD is lost. Company website is awful and very...

Great little scanner


Lovely small. It's a good thing.

Does exactly what you want a scanner to do when you want it to do it. Fast. It was a gift and the recipient is delighted. Even works well winding through corporate guidelines on a company computer.

Can't think of any.

not a bad little scannder


I work for a bank and we use these for scanning drivers licenses to match with individual accounts, and where they are not intended for doing this they work well enough.

Works good, image quality is good enough for what I use these for.

Doesn't always catch info on some business cards

Penpower WorldCard


Don't buy this item unless you want to be able to scan in dozens of languages.

Hardware is fine. Scans quickly and efficiently.

Makes character recognition mistakes. Software is quirky. Difficult to use software. I returned this item and puchased a CardScan model, and it is infinitely better. The problem lies entirely with the software, and has nothing to do with the hardware....
