Summary: I bought one and the scanning is difficult and very subject to requiring very slow and exacting movement. The battery and memory are suspect and require you to plug into the USB on the computer. The quality of the image on the highest setting is poor at best with large pixals.
Summary: I cannot even get this scanner to work in the first place...it turns itself off even when connected to the computer via USB so calibration is impossible. I am stuck with this non-functional scanner and not a happy camper.
Summary: Great quality scans, when it doesn't shut off half-way across the page; difficult to keep straight, even with the little rollers, and hard to manage near tight bindings--probably easier on older, worn books, or ones with broken spines, but if you're not worried about breaking book spines, stick with...
Summary: Seems like an awesome idea. Very small and portable. If you only have a page or two occasionally it would be OK, but much more than that use something else, though not sure what if you're traveling. Two main problems. 1) It keeps cutting off, and 2) getting the scan straight is very difficult.
Summary: After reading the other reviews on this site, I postponed ordering the RC800 twice. However, since I needed a scanner that would scan antique books that cannot be flattened to fit on a flatbed scanner (without damage to the books), and since Planon promised a 30 day guarantee--no questions asked--I...
Summary: This pen is very interesting, it has a great concept but it performs rather bad. The other reviewers were right in saying that this product fails in every aspect, its a great technical feat but it does not deliver.
Summary: I work at the courthouse and their is a line for the copier. I am able to finish twice as much work as before with this pen. If you do not need to copy color pages then definately would get the black and white. It works great on low resolution. I am the envy of the courthouse.
It works until the battery doesn't recharge anymore...

Summary: A very cool gadget, and no complaints about the scanning itself. Great images. Very true scanning, and easy to do. The unit I received was odd. The first issue was cosmetic quality control. There was surplus cellophane tape on the lens which I had to carefully remove.
