Excerpt: I bought the scanner, installed it no problem, but the Presto Pagemanager software that comes with it won't install. I get an error: "This application requires Mac OS X v10.6 or later". As I am running 10.10.2, its pretty frustrating. Emails to Plustek go unanswered, and the support phone just rings, no answer. Cant tell you if this is a good scanner as I can not use it! Really frustrated.
Excerpt: I decided to go completly digital in 2015. I scann and file every piece of paper that comes through my office doors, both for business and personal. The Plustek desktop allows me do do this in a third of the time that it used to take me with my flatbed scanner. My PS286 SmartOffice Plus also scanns in duplex...and I haven't even started to use all it's functions yet! It doesn't get any better! Thank you Plustek!
Summary: This is the second time I've purchased this little scanner. I was with a company that I ordered this scanner for my desk and when I left the company, the new employer did not have a scanner for the desk so I suggested this one based on my satisfaction with it. I have had a great experience with the PlusTex tech support in setting it up with the operating system as well as my current PC. I recommend this scanner, it's a workhorse for it's size. LOVE IT!!
Summary: A lot smaller than expected, but great software and speed. Easy to set up for one-button scanning. Very good image quality. Seems sturdy, but just looks so small sitting there. Highly recommended.
Excerpt: I purchased the scanner to put all the documents into the computer that were needed for a refinance. It handled one- and two-sided documents, check stubs, licenses, ... anything I needed to scan, and it is very fast.The product works very well and it arrived quickly. B&H's price was very good too. I am very pleased with the machine. I have started emptying file drawers and scanning other things in.
Pros: Easy To Set Up, Excellent Software, Good Resolution
