Summary: it falls down and can't support its own weight (rotates around the usb connector towards me). it glares in my eyes and on the screen because it has insufficient top cover. to make it useable I used black electrical tape and a coat hanger until i can get another brand.
Summary: 1. This is very poorly designed, there is a lot of side glare from the LED's. The LEDs should be recessed or shrouded. 2. I Bought one on 10/12/08 and today it is 1/30/90 or about 3-1/2 months later. One LED is burned out and another is flickering. So far 2 bad LED's, six more to go. I will see if Kensington offers any options.
Summary: I am not impressed with this item, it has proved to be more a hinderance than asset. Firstly, on installation, I was conned into paying £28 to download the 'required' software. This proved to be a virus which disabled all USB ports. Laptop had to be taken for repair. Secondly, the scan quality is not as good as one might hope. The software is not user friendly; it is slow and combersome requiring manual input of information not scanned clearly.
Summary: The OCR is worse than hopeless. would be better if it recognised nothing, so you could just scan the card and not need to overwrite the gibberish it places in apparently random fields. The odd card works, so I know the device is at least functioning. The scans themselves are of poor quality, which I guess does not help the software.
