Conclusion: The OptiCard 821 works well for its purpose. I liked the card scanning and organization abilities. Being able to scan photos is a bonus, but not recommended because it could damage your photos. The compact size makes it easy to travel with, but eliminates the ability to scan larger documents. I can recommend this scanner because it is very portable and scans text and graphics really well and really fast. You can probably expect this scanner to be priced at around $150.
