Summary: Should be more of a 4 1/2, as it was frustrating and difficult to figure out how to configure and adjust the 9 available settings (hint: you need to click the scanner icon in the tray on the menu bar in order to select and re-configure the settings.
Summary: The price of this scanner cannot be beat. I am a mobile attorney and this scanner allows me to scan anything I need even when I am meeting a client at their home. It is small and can be plugged into the wall or into the USB port of your computer, so you can take it anywhere.
Summary: The quality of the images scanned is good, and the double-sided scanning is incredibly convenient. That said, the software (Presto! Page Manager) is kludgy, and while it runs on 10.7.5, it clearly isn't designed from a macintosh perspective. The documentation is next to useless.
Summary: Scanning quality is really bad... specially on those documents with colors... simply speaking... this scanner does not worth your attention. It's portable... and it get power from the USB port, but for me the result is more important that this two last features, and if you are looking for an scanner...
Summary: Very good scanner. It's fast, very easy to use and portable. It scans to PDF directly. I use the power supply exclusively, I've never tried only on USB power. The reason I give it 4 stars (I'd give 4.5 if it was possible) is that sometimes it scans 2 pages together from the paper feeder.
Great little affordable scanner with feeder. Terrible linux support, DIY.

Summary: Great little scanner, terrible linux drivers. The scanner is very affordable and very compact (I don't think you can get another ADF scanner in such a small form factor), and it's a lot of value for the money in my opinion.
Summary: works great. I've taken stacks of paper, scanned them, saved them in evernote. Cleaning out back-years of documents in case I need to see them again. Works on Home Depot receipts as well as regular size paper.

Summary: First one had a hardware error that kept the device diagnostics from recognizing the top was closed. I now cannot use the device because the software doesn't play nice with current Mac OS -- and, even then, it was just the Windows software through some kind of emulator.
