Summary: There was no instructions and am still trying to figure out somethings! But it does work but is very tempermental....You have to hold the item you are scanning just right or it puts lines in your image. I bought it to copy some pages from a study guide and that didn't work because of the binding of the book :( Not what I thought it was and would not recommend for copying pages of a book however, it works ok if you have a sheet of paper or photo on a flat surface.
Summary: This scanner was brand new as advertised, and it was shipped quickly and in great condition. Since it was a gift I cannot let you know at this time how great it works! I am returning to let you know that my sister loves this scanner. She researches out family geneology so I purchased this as a christmas gift to help her copy documents and photos. She absolutely loves it! I'm so I bought it, and the seller was shipped really quickly.
