Expert review by : M. David Stone (

Plustek OpticSlim M12


The Plustek OpticSlim M12 scanner is small enough to carry with you, keep in a desk drawer, or mount on the wall.

Highly portable. Small footprint, about the size of a 12-inch ruler. Can be mounted on a wall. Powered through the USB connection.

Software focuses on photos, but the hardware works better with paper documents. Photo quality is only fair, and photos tend to pivot as they feed.
