Summary: to mini SD card, great, to any Windows system, NO. I would give it more stars if it actually scanned to a computer like it CLAIMS on its manual. It does not. If you are looking for a scanner that is portable, great, if to computer, NO.
Summary: Have had this for years. Three laptops never recognized it. Tough to get it to accept any document anyway. Have never been able to use it. This, obviously, may be an issue with my computers and an ignorance on my part.... But, three laptops?
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.
