Summary: I set this scanner up tonight and ran it through a few scenarios that I might run into. So far it scans pages really well and fast too. About 15-20 seconds for an 8.5" x 11.0" letter. It will scan checks and business cards too. Set up what a little strange. The packaged CD was the most up-to-date version of the driver that Genius has released so far so no complaints there.
Summary: The software on the disc would not install on my laptop with Windows XP. I had to download the basic driver from their european website. The basic driver cannot do everything the scanner can but I didn't try hard to install all the software because I'm satisfied with the high-quality black & white jpegs. I really like the fact that there are no batteries to recharge nor 110V-to-12V cumbersome transformer and wires.
