Great Portable Document Scanner
3 weeks ago
Summary: This scanner performs really well, once you put a little effort into it. First off, what I was searching for was Evernote integration. This product claimed to deliver that but it was a little unclear as to how to make it work and there is not much information available about this process either. If you are interested in Evernote and have a Mac, then this review should help you. This is what was not explained in any documentation that I could find.
Summary: I've owned several scanners including the snapscan. This scanner has been the best so far in that it is portable and USB SW capable meaning that it can work without installing SW for basic scanning. The business card functionality is not top notch but I didnt buy it for that and consider that a bonus. It does work, but not as accurate as I would have liked it to.
Summary: I bought this to replace my P-150, which I loved. I've usually had very good experiences with Canon products, but this one was a major disappointment. Pros: The software and scanner is easy to install & use. The image quality is on par with the P-150. Issues: Software: When I did multi-page scanning with the P-150, I used to be able to rotate different pages before saving the scan. Can't do that with the 215. There seem to be fewer options for scanning with this model.
Summary: PROs: -Automatic duplex feature works great. -TWAIN option allows access by third-party applications (e.g., Adobe Acrobat), which means you are not limited to the included software. -Built-in software makes software installation on computer unnecessary -De-skewing feature straightens out pages that scanned at an angle. -Good auto detection of color, grey-scale, and black-and-white. -Works great right out of the box.
Summary: I cannot bare it anymore since it doubled and tripled my work due to constant feed error(won't feed without a push or feed multiple pages at once). It is worthless if a document scanner cannot feed correctly.
Frequently Pulls Multiple Pages, Requires Too Much Attention

Summary: I got this scanner for my legal practice so that I could scan client's documents on the road or at my desk. Although the quality of the scans are fine, it really doesn't serve its purpose because it often pulls in 5 pages or more at once. This the paper to jam or the scanner pushes it through but you don't get a scan of the pages in between the outside two. Very frustrating.
