Pentax DSmobile 600 portable scanner review


There are tasks the average computer user needs to carry out that are often better suited to the office, such as printing or scanning. However, there are an ever-increasing number of tools that allow you to do more on the move. This scanner from Pentax...

Compact, quick to use

Limited use

It has limited functions but the scan functions are more than acceptable for scanning on the move

Pentax DS Mobile 600


Pentax's original DS Mobile was focused entirely on delivering the ability to scan documents and pictures on the move. At about the size of a small umbrella, it was unapologetic about putting convenience ahead of ultimate image quality

Lightweight and small, Quiet in operation, Easy to use

Photo scanning still not great

It can't match a flatbed scanner for ultimate quality, but as a portable solution it will more than meet your needs

The only thing I haven't been able to figure out how to do is to scan an item to a slightly smaller scale. Sometimes items which are printed nearly to the edge are difficult - some items at the edge are missed

EZ to Install & Use - Great Price


My first purchase was the OVER-hyped NeatReceipts 3.0 and it was Garbage - never got it to work. NEXT try was this great, simple, small and effective Pentax DSmobile 600 - at half the NR 3.0 price. This worked smoothly right out of the box. I will...

Install & Scan in 5 minutes

jpg & pdf formats only - but adequate

A Must Have for any road traveler
