Summary: I bought it a while ago to use with a Vista laptop and recently moved it to a Windows 8 Desktop. The new drivers are available on the manufacturer's website. The unit is kind of slow and kind of noisy, but the scan quality is quite good. I don't use it heavily, so I'm OK with it.
Summary: I understand that Visioneer never claimed it would work with Linux. That's why I am giving it 3 stars, after my limited use of it with Windows. Will not plug and play in ubuntu 10.10. Spent time overriding "Visioneer OneTouch 7300" in /etc/sane.d/gt68xx.conf.
Summary: I had a HP scanner that lasted less than a year and it went clang clang clang and quit scanning. That HP one was a BRAND NEW ONE. I'm sick of buying new scanners so frequently so I decided to take a chance on this beauty.
Summary: I bought this to replace the Visioneer OneTouch 9520 Photo scanner (95201D-WU) I bought for my second computer upgrade to Windows 7 and it works some what better on the W7 OS than the 9520 model did; not perfect but better..
Summary: If you are looking for a cheap, decent-quality flatbed scanner that will do most straightforward tasks, this is what you want. It's slim, rests well on most surfaces, and has a hinge to allow for bulkier objects such as books.
Summary: I love the basic premise of this scanner: small enough to bring with you and scan everywhere, no additional electric - works off the computer power. However I felt that it was a complicated installation - too many steps, when I expected plug & play technology.
