Excellent product . . .


Excellent product, and very affordable - for the independent professional who isn't a member of a large office with a huge copier/scanner, this is a wonderful alternative. If you couple this with a good scan-to-fax service such as TrustFax (not a...

We have had this scanner for several years. It does a great job of scanning, it is portable, so we can use it at home and on appointments - we've used it to scan entire real estate agreements and e-mailed them to our clients at signing, which eliminates t

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

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
