This scanner looked ideal for digitizing some old books, without having to break the binding.This scanner is little more than a toy. It ALWAYS distorts when you scan, because the human hand cannot move at the consistent speed of a mechanized scanner. There is a recessed speed adjustment button that appears to have no effect. Better off with a high res camera and OCR.
It is easy and simple to use, even on smaller object scans. On testing the OCR (converts picture to text) software, I was impressed it came out 100% correct.
Very easy to use and with some practice, good quality is achieved. Wish I had it sooner
Does what it says on the box - very quick and easy to use - delivery time and condition excellent
I have had previous hand held scanners and this one is very easy to use, and simple to retrieve data. good quality scans even on low resolution, and AA battery operated no waiting for it to charge before use.
Good scans, Quite easy to use. But it needs great care cleaning the itsybitsy rollers. They pick up 'stuff' from nowhere and then they roll erratically - giving faulty scans. A good careful clean does it but it is quite a fiddle finding the bits stuck in the rollers - nearly sent it back until I found the culprits.
First class little machine. Very highly recommended. BUT be aware that it does not really scan in black and white; it just stores a (huge) colour JPG come what may. Also the instructions tell you to format the micro SD card by pushing a (non-existent) button. Fortunately the generic SD HC card I used worked without formatting.
Excellent and useful bit of kit. Easy to use and results are very good.
Too big. Pity u don't have a pocket-sized version.
I had two problems with this. The scanner is not set for A4, as advertised, but a size somewhat wider (not a problem) and somewhat shorter. If the text on a page runs close to the lower edge, it will not be scanned. There is no way to change the setting. Also, I found the supplied OCR software unable to cope with the text, in standard print and English, at all, reducing it to gibberish. Two other programs I have managed well. Apart from these matters, the scanner works well on flat sources, and produces readable JPEG files which are satisfactory for archiving.

Does this come with its own internal memory? if so what size or do you have to buy a micro SD card for it?
