Pentax DSmobile 600 portable scanner


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. The Pentax DSmobile 600...

Compact, quick to use

Limited use

The Pentax DSmobile 600 is simple to use and if you need to scan when on the move, it's as powerful a device as you're likely to need.

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

Review: Pentax DSmobile 600 scanner


Duplicate documents on the move with this capable scanner

Consumer review (

Slow, but useful portable scanner. Perfect for traveling.


I bought this to be able to scan documents on the go. It is small and portable and does work well for its intended purpose. I would not want to use this as my primary scanner, though, since you sacrifice productivity for increased portability.

Small size, small weight makes this easy to travel with. Compatibility with Mac OS X 10.5 (Leopard). Built-in calibration function to assure whitest whites and blackest blacks on the scans with grayscale accuracy

Slow scans; instead of a white backing to the scanning surface, it has a black backing so if something is out of alignment, it creates a noticeable black border
