Expert review by : M. David Stone (

Plustek OptiCard 820


The OptiCard 820 isn't the most accurate business-card scanner on the block, but it's the only one we've seen that's also designed to scan photos.

Small footprint. Powered through the USB connection. Includes software for photos as well as business cards. Exchanges data with Microsoft Outlook and other contact-management programs.

Photo-scan quality and business-card text recognition are less than ideal. No scratch removal or color-restore features for photos. No automatic document feeder.
