Planon System Solutions DocuPen R700

 

This silvery, oblong gizmo measures 8 inches long by less than 2 inches wide, and it weighs a scant 2 ounces. A single button on the middle of the DocuPen R700 turns it on: press once and hold it to scan at the standard 100dpi resolution or press it...

Easy to use; ultraportable; scans fast.

Poor scan quality; expensive; doesn't work with Macs; scans in black and white only; text is illegible at small sizes; middling OCR software.

If you need an ultralight scanner that slips inside a deep pocket, dig deep into those pockets to splurge on the DocuPen.

Mobile scanners can make a lot of jobs easier, like taking a few pages of a library book with you. The tiny devices offer a level of flexibility and novelty that can make them perfect for certain jobs. The Docupen R-700 rechargeable by PLANon...

Before testing the scanner, I?ll need to work through installing the software interface

DocuPen R-700

 

Too fast, too slow; there's no "just right" with the DocuPen

Completely portable, recharegable Lithium- Ion battery, lightweight at 2oz.

Below-average quality scans, poor Mac support, have to hold down pinching power button to use.

Once you buy it, you'll fall in love with it, since it becomes indispensable. No wonder it was entered in the Guinness World Book of Records.

Great resolution, fast to operate, it is a must have in the document scanning from student to executive. Prices for every honorable pocket. After all, it was made by NIKOSHI Japan.

"A great concept that produces bad scans"

 

OK, so this is actually a review of the newer RC800. I thought this was going to be a good product, not great like a flatbed scanner, but for the high price, at least good.

Ultra-portable and a great idea

Really poor scans

all show no go

 

This letter is a summary of my experience with PlanOn for the past 6 months. It all began innocent enough, I saw an article about the Docupen, and saw immediate possibilities for potential use. Over the summer of 2006 I was going to order the DocuPen...

Product Specifications

Planon introduces the DocuPen R700, a handheld scanner that operates on batteries for full portability purposes. The DocuPen is capable of storing up to 100 pages into memory and takes approximately 4 to 8 seconds per page. The DocuPen is different from other pen scanners in that it scans a FULL PAGE width and therefore scans the entire page including text and graphics in just 4 seconds. Other handheld and pen scanners only scan single lines of text or records handwriting and cannot scan graphics making them much less practical. In comparison, the DocuPen is truly a breakthrough in technological development because it fully realizes the potential of what other pen size scanners tried to accomplish. The need for convenient out of office scanning is enormous but has not been satisfied because the products to date did not fulfill that need adequately. As the fax evolved from the telex, to successfully satisfy its communication need, the DocuPen is the practical solution to the pen scanners finally opening the market for wide spread acceptance.
