Problems with USB 3 and other annoyances

5 Dollar Footlong, Amazon
25 June 2014
  • 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. Even utilizing a port expander (which is USB 1 & 2), the scanner is never recognized. It worked well on a Windows 7 Pro x64 PC. The only issue I had was an annoyance with the scanning output to MS Outlook 2010.

  • Summary: The software is a little clunky and kept crashing on me. Sometimes the cards would scan with a line through them, but overall works ok

Seems like a good tool but not Windows 8 compliant

Maker, Amazon

  • 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. Hopefully the Win 8.1, 64 bit driver will be available soon.

Good if you want a physical machine.

  • Summary: Good if you want the ease of having something in the office and remind you to do it. I do about half of my cards with this and the other half I'll do...
  • Pros: Easy to use

Caveat Emptor -- please think carefully before buying this product

Rodya, Amazon

  • 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. Both the initial scan, and subsequent searches are quick and accurate.

Executive CardScan Review - Nice, but NOT Highly Accurate

chiefbh, Amazon
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. However, I have to make modifications to scanned cards about 50% of the time which arguably defeats having the device. A quick typist could enter just as fast.

"I have CardScan 600"

CNET
24 November 2004
  • Pros: If you just want to creat a list to blast an email or letter to, it is not bad.
  • Cons: Character Recognition, I use Act. It is to much trouble to scan a card to the card scanner software, check for errors and then export to Act. You can type the card into Act faster.

Can be much improved... but good idea

MaryGail Hutchins, Amazon
20 April 2000
  • 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. Set up of sync with Outlook was way too complicated; it is also not possible to sync with Outlook AND Palm; you have to chose one or the other.
