The software needs to be re-writen by someone who knows what quality is about.

Summary: I tried to load the software from the manif. site onto a tablet with windows 8.1 5 attempts all were a failure. Used the cd to put it onto a laptop with windows 7 This didn't load without problems either, but I could thrash through the problems and install and got it installed in spite of the difficulties. The software display was low quality with many options to choose from.
Summary: If you are running Windows 8.1 DO NOT BUY and I repeat DO NOT BUY. They have a work around posted on the Iris site which requires jumping thru fire. After doing that and got the drivers installed, the next issue I hit was scanner software would die each time I selected the scanner. Long story short I did not get this to work on 8.1 but Windows 7 works fine. So this does me no good remotely since I'm running 8.1 on my table (surface pro).
Excerpt: I ordered this scanner in order to keep up with receipts of business purchases. So far, it works great. It is small and lightweight, plugs into my computer for easy access.I can easly take it with me where ever my laptop goes. It has a good quality scan, easy to use program. I like the price, much cheaper than other brands for the same job. .
Summary: It worked well for the first 50 scans or so. After that, it would leave lines/streaks across the scanned documents. It also would stop registering on my computer in the documents folder but it would still show the scanning progress like it was working fine... so I would end up realizing after about 50 papers scanned that none of them went through. The speed is slowing now as well.
Summary: Looking for a compact and easy-to-use scanner, I came across the IRISCan Express 3. The installation of the device went smoothly on a Windows 8 PC and recognized the hardware right away. I installed the provided software and scanned the first documents. Directly saved to Word, Excel, or PDF and ready for further processing. Also it is small and easy to carry between home and office...for the price you can't beat it!.
Excerpt: I had to return this item because it couldn't be used without being plugged into the computer. This scanner was needed away from the office. The IRISCan Anywhere 3 Cordless Scanner charges on the computer & can be used out in the field. STAPLES & other retailers should note this in their descriptions.
Excerpt: This scanner really works well! I also like the software that comes with the scanner. You will have many format options so that you can save the document to. The scanner comes with a storage pouch too, which i thought that was very considerate of the company IRIScan. I have not scanned any colored document material as of yet, so don't know how match the coloring will be, if that is a concern for you.
