A Lemon of A Scanner

thezoed, Amazon
8 February 2008
  • Summary: A fast, powerful OCR scanner is what I had hoped for, but instead got a slow scanner with presumed OCR technology that doesn't work well. Furthermore, the scanner software that comes with the scanner is terrible, and has a poor working interface. I do not recommend this scanner. Look elsewhere.

Not for your film negatives!

  • Summary: If you are planning to scan film strips (it does not even work with mounted slides) this is certanly NOT the scanner. It crops the image and you will expend the rest of your life moving the back light one frame per scan.

Not suitable for photos

  • Summary: I tried 2 of these-- both made horrible lines through my photos. I wouldn't recommend it if that's what you want to scan. It's ok for b&w documents.

This was a bit of a let down

M. Welsch "Miss Mary", Amazon

  • Summary: Scans photographs OK, but there are blurry areas on other images, around the edges. I've been using scanners for many years, was tempted by the slim design...just didn't work out.
