Good device, poor support

John "John", Amazon

  • Summary: I purchased this item through Amazon in February 2007. It has performed reasonably well for most applications. I recently upgraded to a new computer and needed to reload the application software. I couldn't find my original disk, so I called Plustek technical support, who told me that the I would need to get a replacement disk from them.

Great size but scans are often skewed

Keith Robinson, Amazon

  • Summary: The key feature is the small size. At first I thought "D'oh! It is so obvious! Why move a scanning head inside a large box when you can simply move the paper?". Having used it, I see why. The rollers drag the paper in but do not grab it very accurately. There are no paper guides to ensure paper is fed in squarely - scans often appear skewed. The description says there is de-skewing software but if there is it does not seem to be active.

Portable Laptop Scanner - Plustek M12

caroline9, Ciao
24 April 2008
  • Excerpt: This scanner's intended purpose was to provide a portable scanner for my laptop - something that I could carry around without lugging a box that was bigger than my actual laptop! It had to meet 3 requirements: be portable, scan quickly and scan in detail - as I wanted to be able to scan in business cards for work and the occasional article. Anything else was a bonus. So, what did I actually make of the M12 scanner.
  • Pros: Lightweight, Portable, Compact, High Quality, Good Software & Bundled Stuff
  • Cons: Can't Scan In Books/Booklets/Full Size Newspapers Direct

Hatte mir mehr versprochen

perein, eBay.de

  • Summary: Ich hatte mir diesen wirklich schön kleinen und handlichen Scanner für unterwegs gekauft, um "mal schnell" was einzuscannen und ohne großen Aufwand weiter zu benutzen. Leider ging das bei mir nur als "jpeg". Ich wollte eigentlich mit der beigefügten Software Dokumente gleich als PDF einscannen. War aber leider nicht möglich. Darum habe ich das Gerät zurückgegeben. Aber wie gesagt, es war wirklich sehr handlich und die Fotoqualität auch gut.
