Summary: I finally bought a scanner after years of resisting. Mostly, I have documents to be signed or filled out by hand, ones that won't translate into PDF's or Word files. This one from Canon works fairly well with my MacBook Pro. It's plug and play with minimal setup. One feature I like is the ability to scan a couple of pages and stop, then start scanning again, yet all the pages become part of the same file. This is very helpful when dealing with multiple signature pages.
Worth the investment - excellent portable duplex scanner

Summary: If you've read a thorough review of someone who uses this scanner every day in the trenches, then every word they say is dead on. It's fast and reliable. The duplex option is very helpful to get the double-sided jobs done without fuss. It's easily transportable. The software is very good. Works with Macs and PCs, no problem. The instructions are a bit too lean; some things are a left for the user to guess at, but you'll figure it out.
Summary: Worked well. Folds up when not in use. Install resides on embedded storage, which is convenient. Scan software is simple to use. Good feed speed and also scans front and back in a single pass. The only complaint is that it seems to have a minor issue pulling the last page in a stack when glossy paper is fed. Otherwise, this performs well for light to moderate use at a fraction of the size.
Summary: I have had a number of scanners, and was looking for a product which would be samll, quick and quickly scan double sided documents so I could scan and save a bunch of old paper docs and then shred and chuck them. I looked at a number of products but this one seemed like it would work the best.
Summary: This things works great. I got it to organize a great deal of documents and to have a small sized scanner for when you're on the move. The business card feature works well, it uses USB 3 and does OCR (optical character recognition) as it scans which is great. 4 stars because of price.
Pros: Works great, has basic software needed built into a small flash memory storage.
Summary: Right out of the box, plug it in with just the USB and the built in software will handle all of your tasks. I have scanned documents over 20 pages and the automatic feed has been flawless and fast. You can toss it into your lap top case or move it anywhere with you and be prepared to handle most tasks. No, I would not attempt to scan major documents in bulk but this is ideal for my practice.
Summary: Great product. Scans both sides at once and is very quick to setup and pack away again. Hasn't missed a beat in the couple of months I've had it. Software could be a bit more flexible but is certainly adequate for the job.
