Caveat Emptor -- please think carefully before buying this product
1 November 2012
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 only game in town (that I know of) for scanning cards on a MAC. Three negatives: *Mistake prone: some evident, some you might miss (don't believe everything you see) *Slow and hangs *Can totally screw up MAC Address Book and Entourage data when syncing if you're not paying attention Not quite...
Summary: The scanner and software are definitely easy to use. The only thing I don't love is that the cards don't process into your computer until after all of the scanning is done. When I'm putting hundreds of cards through at once, I have to wait a long time to check the accuracy because it's uploading all...
Quick WARNING: The Cardscan software that's included DOES NOT support the latest editions of CRM software ACT!

Summary: Quick WARNING: The Cardscan software that's included DOES NOT support the latest editions of CRM software ACT! You'll have to buy 3rd party add-on such as Scan-It to scan into ACT!. Scanner works great.
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.
Summary: Disaster on set up. Two hours on phone with tech support because the scanner wheel kept spinning and would not quit. Product eventually worked for a couple hours and same problem started over again, putting it back in box and sending back for replacement.
Executive CardScan Review - Nice, but NOT Highly Accurate

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.
Seems like a good tool but not Windows 8 compliant
20 August 2007
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.
