Visioneer Strobe 400


Not all that long ago, the Visioneer Strobe 400 ($299.99 direct) would have stood out from the crowd. Its combination of portability, duplexing (two-sided scanning), the ability to get power over either a USB cable or an AC power adaptor, and the...

Duplex (two-sided) scanning. Gets power from AC adaptor or over USB connection. Can scan plastic (thick) cards

Manual feed only. Scored poorly for business cards

Visioneer - Strobe 400

Small foot print on the desk. Quick, reasonably good quality scans. Most of the time. Good product for the price if you're using Windows XP

Almost always blurry on one side. Doesn't scan entire page width in Win7 64bit no matter what

Works with Win 7


With respect to what lmalinofsky said, the bundeled PaperPort 11.1 DOES WORK WITH WINDOWS 7. I have it working on a Win 7 Ultimate X64 system.

FAST, duplex

Scans not always straight

Much faster than in Video!


Thanks for the great Video however the scanner's speed is not truly represented. The Strobe 400 is FAST when scanning 200 or 300 dpi. The speed in the video appears not as fast because it is scanning at 600 dpi and in color.Thanks for the great product...

Accurate Color, Easy Setup, Excellent Software, Good Bit Depth, Good Resolution

Great Scanner


I use this scanner on the road for receipts, documents and business cards. It will actually pull through medical cards. I couldn't be any happier with this purchase and recommend it to anyone who needs a mobile scanner.
