The Magic Wand vs X05

Summary: I cant say that I've used the Planon Docupen X05 or RC800 unit before, but review after review mentions its poor construction and poor shut off feature (shuts off after every scan, or a few seconds of inactivity). I planned on getting it but these reviews and the price tag turned me off. I'm trying to scan pages of books and don't want it to turn off after each scan. I ended up going with the VuPoint Magic Wand.
Summary: This product is, in a word, useless. In two words, useless and expensive. I am a PhD student in History. I do most of my research in libraries. Some of these libraries do not have copy machines or scanners available, so when I found this product, I thought I had found a perfect solution for scanning multi-page articles from books and periodicals from non-circulating libraries. I am guessing this product was not designed with someone with my needs as a user.
