Summary: I have been scanning a lot of print photos for a web site I am running and had been using one that was smaller and only did the 4 x 6 photos. This is scanning 8 x 10 photos and documents and is doing a very credible job. I am able to scan photos in the evening while watching TV. Pros: Portable, fast, decent image quality, Cons: Battery life is a bit short and I have had intermittent luck trying to power with a usb power cord.
Summary: Absolutely one of the best portable scanners on the market. I have used this scanner for about 4 years with out any problem with the scanner. The 600 dpi scans are as good as any flat bed scanner scanning at the same resolution. The batteries last a long time as well. Love that it works independently of a PC. Would highly recommend it.
Summary: This is a great little scanner for the price. It's not a high end scanner, however it is great for a homeowner/SMALL business owner. I truly like the portability of the unit and the way it stores images on the memory card as stated in the product description, I use the scanner to scan and save all my bills & receipts for the year. This way I can throw away all the paper is used to save to year-end tax reporting.
Summary: I have several Viewpoint portable scanners, but I wanted one that was sheet fed, so I considered the sheet feed adapter for my Viewpoint, but that was too expensive. One day I saw this scanner on HSN but branded Viewpoint for 139.00 compared to this which was 59.00 I recognized the name SVP from quite a ways back so I did not hesitate to get it despite some of the negative reviews. This scanner is great, I use it all the time now.
Summary: This is a great little scanner. All the setup involves is putting in the batteries, the micro-disk, and setting the time/date/quality settings, and it is up and running. I was concerned about the maximum A4 setting, but it also handles the slightly larger letter size. A sleeve for photos is included so you don't have to worry about damaging your photos. I am highly pleased with this scanner.
Summary: NOTE: In the description it states "standalone" which means it stands alone, it does not hook up to the computer except for power. You scan to the mini sd card then put the card in your computer reader. This was not explicit when I purchased mine some months back and caused me a lot of time but figured it out and have done tons of scanning since and it has worked flawlessly. Just did 160 pages and only used about 62 meg.
Summary: This is a slim and small very attractive scanner that can copy both documents receipts and photo direct on on to a sd memory card. The most attractive thing about this scanner is that it runs off 4 aa batteries and therefore can be taken and used anywhere in the world any time Also more amazing is it does not need to have soft wear to run it on a mac or a windows computer. No drivers needed.
Summary: My only gripe with this scanner is that it doesn't work with Linux via it's cable, but I have to admit that that is one of the reasons that I bought it . This scanner is awesome. What it does is it scans documents to a memory card (Micro Sd) and saves them as a .jpg image I was able to remove the card from the scanner and use an micro sd adapter to plug it into my PC and then use a program called gscan in Linux to create PDF files out of the images. So problem solved.
