Okay portable scanner - just wish....

Summary: Being that I am an accountant that has a mobile office (RV motorhome) that I use when I go to my clients for both tax appointments as well as year end and consulting appointments. Sure enough, the client will have some source documents that will need to be scanned. In the past, I was using my iPhone with a scanning app but found that this was quite time consuming. I also was using a simple single page USB scanner from Brother which worked well but single sheet only.
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: Somewhat disappointed because it does not come with windows 8.1 software. If you go to Canon website trying to look for Windows 8.1 software updates, it says no software available and suggesting people to try the default software comes with Windows. I don't think that is acceptable.
Summary: I'm a researcher gun-for-hire and often have to go to law offices or libraries of great urban bureaucracies where I copy documents. I usually have to pay for these copies and then lug tons of paper back to my lair so I can rescan them. Then, all those docs go into the recycling. Bye, Trees. I was really leary about buying a portable scanner and I even contemplated just lugging around my actual all-in-one. But, now I have Scan-Tini!

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.
Summary: It does the work nice, scanning fast giving good quality results. The only con is that if you put more than a single paper there is a 30% chance that the feeder will pull more than a single paper at a time...
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.
