Summary: I have never before submitted a review before using tech product for a couple of months, at least. But this works just as advertised. A local genealogy society is pushing a 4" by 6" battery powered flatbed scanner for document research -- at $250 and up, depending on the package you choose. I bought this mouse/scanner on sale for $46 from NEWEGGFLASH, and it is not limited to that 4x6 bed. It should scan an A3 doc with my 8GB, i7 laptop.
Summary: I bought this thing to take to Taiwan with me, to help me in my traditional Chinese lessons. To my surprise and disappointment, LG does not recognize this language in it's OCR data base! (Oh, but it has over 180 other languages in its database!) What a waste of money! Other than that, it's just fine.
Summary: Recommended, especially if you have limited space.
Pros: I love this little thing. Everything I've tested comes out great. I bought this to replace a flat bed scanner that quit. I don't use a scanner everyday, so not having to dedicate desk space to another machine is a huge plus. (I didn't have any problems with the cord.)
Cons: Thick edges (hard cover book cover) not so easy. You will need to surround the cover/book with something the same thickness.
