Summary: Just spent about one hour on tech support with Dymo support. Apparently there is a know issue with the scanner not working well/at all on USB 3 ports. Unfortunately, the Microsoft Surface I use has only one USB port, which happens to be USB 3.0.
Seems like a good tool but not Windows 8 compliant
2 January 2014
Summary: Disappointed. The website led me to believe that this scanner was Windows 8 compliant but after testing it I found out it is not. Tech support has no idea when the drivers or firmware will be updated. For now I will use this on a Windows 7, 32 bit machine.
Summary: I work for an Indian Company and also interact with many Indian Companies. They put the name of company and your name on the front of the cards and the address and remaining info. on the back of the card. Although you can capture both sides, it is not capturing in a manner that is usable.
Executive CardScan Review - Nice, but NOT Highly Accurate
4 January 2009
Summary: I would have thought by now that current OCR software would make reading business cards fairly accurate and reliable. I am the President of a company and expect to be able to quickly enter business cards without having to spend a lot of time reviewing for accuracy.
Caveat Emptor -- please think carefully before buying this product

Summary: Cardscan 800c used on Mac OS X 10.8 The cardscanner itself is an exceptional product, and I have been using it for around 2 years now. I am a salesman, and the ability to scan all of my cards into my Mac and quickly and easily search for contacts digitally has greatly increased my productivity.
Summary: The scanner was larger than I expected and is flimsy with a bulky adaptor. The main problem is software; it's buggy, not intuitive (Ctr-X is "cut" and "Ctr-V" is "paste"), it is also slow to load the database once you get to about 200 cards. On my NT, some screens did not display properly.
Summary: I cannot compare it with other card scanners: it is my first. But it is a very efficient, and accurate tool for all of us for which networking is an essential part of our business. In a moment you have all the data of almost any business card transferred to your computer.
