Awesome product that is a great value for the money!!!

  • Summary: I am really getting great usage from this handheld scanner. It makes scanning from my collections a lot easier and quicker. I no longer have to take the pages from the binders and put on the flatbed scanner, and then open and flip the page. This is great, and an amazing quality for a great price.

excelent portable scanner

Eric Lieb "Eric Br", Amazon
14 September 2010
  • Summary: Very small, easy to use. Delicate piece, handle with care! Good quality for a portable scanner, pen-like. I use it everywhere. Scanned pages do not compare to a flat-bed scanner, but are decent for later reading / printing. Highly recommend for the road warrior!

An alternative to consider

R. A. Ferris, Amazon

  • Summary: I do not own this product, but I was strongly considering it before a friend told me about the VuPoint Solutions® Magic Wand(tm) Portable Scanner (Model # PDS-ST410-VP, [...]). It is slightly larger, but still easily portable and usable. I bought one last night. They retail for $100.00, and they are available at Bed, Bath & Beyond, both retail and online. I used one of those 20% off coupons that they are always sending out and got it for $80.00.

No Way

  • Summary: - Low quality scans, b/w or color - auto-shutdown in the middle of a scan - slow data transfer - Iron Age software - impossible to get a full A4 scan, without a shutdown, X icon or steady image.

docupen 805

Kashyapa Yapa, Amazon
22 March 2010
  • Summary: I always dreamt about having a portable scanner when I visit libraries for my investigation work, as I spent hours copying pages and pages of articles and then break my back carrying the heavy luggage around. I could not believe that docupen gadget was so simple and so portable. So the first impression was of Five stars. Getting it installed was quite easy, though the instructions weren't that clear. Also installed the microSD to jump up the storage from 8MB to 2GB.

  • Summary: It takes a little practice to generate a clear scan. Excellent communication and assistance from manufacturer. Rechargeable battery has outstanding longevity.

Good for portability, horrible software

Jeffrey D. Doan, Amazon
24 May 2009
  • Summary: The software to view scanned images on the scanner works fine. However, every time I want to export the images from the scanner to my Vista laptop hard drive, I had to export 1 image at a time, cuz if I export a group of them, they will all be corrupted and not viewable. I don't believe it's a Vista issue, and had to return the scanner and got hit with a 15% restocking fee.

This product needs some work

Christopher, Amazon
2 May 2009
  • Summary: Considering the money I spent on this product I am somewhat disappointed. 1. The pen powers off in the middle of a scan. 2. The drivers and software provided are tricky you must install in a particular sequence before the thing will work. 3. The case it came in looks nice but it is not form fitting causing the items in it to fall out when opening. 4.
