Summary: I returned this. It is a great idea, but I could not get the paper to feed properly through the scanner. It would pull to one side and if I tried to straighten it, the scan would be blurred. I like the idea of being able to scan with out being connected to a computer, but this just wouldn't work right. I should add that this was with an 81/2 by 11 inch paper. When I put a photo into the "jacket"' included, it scanned just fine.
Summary: I planned on using it to scan documents. The feed mechanism worked intermittently and randomly. After about 20 scans it began pulling at one side of the paper causing it to jam. I talked with Ion tech support and was told it likely had a hardware failure. I returned it to get my $$ back.
Summary: The scanner is very compact but not flimsy. Good quality scan, Nice accessories, Easy to use stand alone or hooked up to your PC. The only thing that kept this from being great is that there is a switch on the bed of the scanner that senses when paper is loaded on the scanner tray. I had to tape the switch down to make the scanner operate.
Summary: This is a great buy for the price and performance. I have scanned close to 700 photos. Document scanning is also very good. The cons, 300 dpi only, the document or the photos should be decently thick for the scanner to pull it.
Summary: What I like about this scanner is: > The low price with included SD card. I didn't have to buy anything extra to work the scanner. Big plus for me. > The onboard LCD screen - a 'must have' feature. Lets me view the scan instantly for quality. > No computer needed to scan. Scan on the fly. I use it to scan monthly rent checks, rental & personal documents, ID's, etc.. The scans come out sharp and clear with the right contrasts.
Summary: Ordered to scan receipts and paper for small business. Does not work at all. Must connect and disconnect from computer each time you add an item. Did not scan all of the paper on most receipts!! The worst scanner ever!
