Summary: We bought this product a few weeks ago to digitize business cards and the price ($20) wasn't bad for what it is. I read most the reviews (as I usually do) and decided to try it anyway, again $20 isn't that bad to try. Here are some things I learnt that may help you to decide whether or not to buy this product.
Summary: I wish that I could could praise this unit but, I cannot. When it scans, often it stretches the image because it scans too slowly. The OCR function is poor, maybe because the scans are so poor, but you have to edit almost every field of data that is scanned. There does not seem to be a way to add images not scanned from the card so that you can attach a photo of a contact to the scan. It is easy to edit but, as I said, you have to edit too much.
Summary: You offer this v8 version of your product but neglect to tell people the hardware you are shipping with the software is not compatibile for the newer operating systems. Yeah you can upgrade but forget scanning anything unless you purchase your $300.00 scanner. Guess what guys, there are cheaper scanners out there that do way more for much less. Sorry to loose cardscan as my scanner.
Summary: I was simply amazed at how fast and efficient this is. I scanned 211 cards in less than 20 minutes. Editing on maybe 1/5 of them took no time at all. The only problem is it doesn't like dark cards.
Greeat deal if you computer is 32 bit but won't work on any 64 bit computer, of course it didn't say that in the ad!

Summary: Great idea and a great price but beware of bargains. I had to call the company to find out why the software would not load and they told me it was for 32 bit computers and would not work at all for 64 bit computer. Amazon just forgot to mention that in the ad!!!
Summary: I really did not know which card scanner to buy but I thought of taking the change as this was costing just 18.5 dollars. I was sure it will atleast scan 20 cards. The product is much better than expected. I am totally happy with the product and recommend it to all the sales guys...
