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.
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: 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
