Summary: I have been using card scan for many years. The new version works well and has better features. I just wish I did not have to buy a new device due to windows 7. Would have been happier paying for a software upgrade.
Summary: If you have office 2013 or office 365 DO NOT buy this yet. It works great on all older version of office. Now we have to scan do the DYMO software and then sync with office instead of scanning directly to outlook. If they would have updated their software to match Microsoft they would get 5 stars.
Summary: Installed and worked great on Office 2010. Then IT upgraded us to Office 2013 and the software no longer works. Dymo's website acknowledges this, but there is not yet a downloadable fix for Office 2013.
Summary: This is a delightful scanner, it really is. It's fast-ish, with some nice OCR'ing going on. I don't use it's software for contact management, just export into a few other things, so I can't quite comment on that, but what I can comment on is its lack of Open Directory support - it just doesn't work.
Summary: I did not experience any major problems with the card reader as some other reviews have indicated. I did have to review the entries to make sure all of the information was downloaded. I bought the device as I had a couple of hundred cards I needed to transfer the information to some kind of format for saving and accessing easily. The system works pretty well, but like I have said, you have to check the entries for the occassional lack of information.
Summary: Normally I don't write reviews but this system works. I don't use the card reader much and bought it for the contact data base program. If you are compiling a customer list, you should consider this program. The "drag and drop" is perfect for quick data entry. The "address check" seems to work well and reduces postage returns. Lots of sortable categories. It's easy to print a single envelope or a whole list. Can choose from a number of nice fonts.
Excerpt: Easy installation, easy use. Nice design, light and portable. I did like the older version software view of the data. Was able to see all data without having to scroll or select other features.
Pros: Easy To Transport, Easy To Use, Good Resolution, Scans Accurately, Scans Quickly
