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.
Pros: Easy setup Good mouse Good scanner with slick software!
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.
