Summary: Yes There is the huge scanner available albeit Scanner Mouse is just where I need it, when I need it for all of those SMALL jobs like business cards, envelopes, receipts and so forth that were going in the FILE.! I replaced the desk blotter with a non-slip pad, to keep the target in place, and just scan away! No issues with HOW I scan, just move Scanner Mouse over the target and it will PIECE together all the parts of the scan.
Pros: Performance, Style/Design, easy to use, Features/Settings, Quality, os compatable
Summary: It scanned no better than my old 300 dpi scanner, even when set at 1200dpi and with me scanning back and forth many times. It seems that the software included is improved over older software, but there is still room for improvement. It is a great idea, and will probably become a great product . . . eventually.
Okay scanner for flat 8.5 x 11 sheets... for larger thick books, forget it.
5 November 2013
Summary: I bought this scanner because I wanted to scan book pages from recipe books, music books, etc., some sizes larger than an 8.5 x 11. I found that scanning books with smaller (.5) margins were impossible to scan without some excessive work at keeping the sensor on the page and any shift in position caused the scanner to start scanning at a different angle instead of straight.
Summary: The bad: The Scan button is too easy to hit and when I was trying to scan a page in a book, when I got close to the inside edge, I had to move my fingers to get the scanner close to the edge and twice, the mouse hit the book and scan key and quit the scan mode. The scan button should be on the top of mouse, out of the way.
Summary: I've been using scanners since the "olden" days, when they had to be connected via SCSI adapters. I still have a big old flatbed scanner on my desktop, though it's connected via USB 2. The LG LSM-100 scanner/mouse scans as good as the flatbed, plus the software is easier to use. With the old type scanner, you have to scan whole pages most of the time. The LSM-100 allows you to scan just what you need, and allows you to skip parts of documents you might not want.
Pros: Performance, easy to use, Features/Settings, Quality
