Summary: Reading people's reviews prior to purchases always make me nervous to buy something, afraid the product won't work or I'll be disappointed. The IRIScan made scanning an entire book really easy, and fast. However, it does not do well for books with bent edges/corners. The software with it is a little confusing and I'm still learning how to use it, but overall I am happy with my purchase.
Summary: When you need to scan something quick and don't want to march back and forth to a desktop scanner the IRISCan makes it possible. Scans of books and magazines are extremely easy and accurate without having to redo a lot of times. I used this daily and it has really helped to increase my productivity.
Summary: I would not recommend this product for extensive or large batch of documents where a sheet feeder would come handy. My wife purchased this for me and I find it incredibly useful. I basically use it everyday. There is always something that crosses my desk I want to preserve. Instead of filing it, I scan it and throw it in the recycling bin. At the end of the week, I empty all my scans and dump everything in the software to make PDFs.
Promising product does not delver; mediocre customer support

Summary: This is a promising product but not ready for prime time. I returned it after being unable to get timely support from customer. I rally need a product like this, but I'll need to try something else.
Summary: first of all, the instructions on how to open it to put in the batteries were impossible to figure out. Then it just doesn't work as expected. I plan to return it. I did return it and the process was VERY easy. Thank You.
Summary: This is a great little scanner. I bought it recently and had it up and running within a few hours of its arrival. Image quality is excellent and its easy to use once you get some practice The scans are clear and legible and easily transferred to the computer with the USB cable included. I use it to scan everything from pictures to magazine articles. The scanner is extremely portable and so easy to always have available!
Summary: I purchased this scanner to save some significant money on brochure mailings. We have been sending out our full product brochures to potential leads, even though we understand they are only interested in one or two of our products. This scanner is so useful to our Marketing Dept. and allows them to scan only the page (s) of the images of product that our "leads" indicate.
Summary: I purchased the IRISCan Book 3 for scanning magazine articles and recipes , and it worked very well. I scanned several dozen pages which would have been awkward on a flatbed scanner. The Book 3 slides effortlessly over the page in several seconds. The actual scanner glass is located slightly to one side, so I found that the best method especially with narrow margins was to position the scanner glass nearest the margin.
