Summary: This is a great scanner for travel, although I have found that I love it on my desk permanently as well. It takes up so little space that I use it all of the time and replaced my desktop scanner with it. It is QUICK and responsive. There is no CHARGER or power supply; it charges with the USB once it is connected! The accompanying PaperPort software is "ok" - a little cumbersome at first. Once you get used to it, you can do almost any editing with it.
Summary: This scanner is small and light-weight. It may be great, but since I have a Mac, I wouldn't know. Sure would have been nice if the description specified that it only works with Windows. I was fooled by the information referring to the ability to save to a "cloud" for access from my Mac. After reading several reviews for other scanners, I see that some are specifically for Macs and some are specifically for Windows.
Excerpt: I got an e-mail asking me to answer a question: "Will this device scan negatives?" The answer is definitely NO. It's a great machine at a good price for single sheet fed documents. Won't do anything with negatives or transparencies.
Summary: I needed something small and light weight to take from Illinois to Oslo, Norway and be carried in a suit case and backpack w/ a laptop. And copy lots a photo's and documents it worked great color and black and white and it works great with my paperport program.
Summary: I have the older version of this scanner. I really liked it and bought this updated one. There was a driver issue, I called Visioneer directly and also put a notice into the seller (Systemsdirect). Visioneer solved the issue for me. While I was still on the phone with Visioneer, the seller (Systemsdirect) tech support call (very fast response). Dave was very nice and sought to help me.
Summary: Just installed it onto a Windows 8 machine and the product works great. Other than needing calibration, setup was a breeze. Definitely trust the brand compared to other knockoff brands so happy with the purchase.
Summary: I've used Visioneer scanners for over 10 years. They are work horses in a small package. So far I am happy with my new scanner, which I had to buy as my original Visioneer Strobe (bought in 2001 and still works!!!) didn't have drivers for Windows 7. If I could update it, I would still be using it. Very reliable.
