Summary: The installation instructions are easy to follow. The software installs with just a few clicks. There are options to choose from when installing the software. I choose to install everything offered, using the defaults. This is a great little device.
Summary: Set up on Win XP machine for a novice user. Scanner works great and the software is very intuitive. I trained the user in a matter of minutes. She likes it and is using it effectively. Only complaint: Scanner often pulls the pages sideways.
Summary: Using the Visioneer Strobe with Windows XP works fine for us; except the unit is much larger than expected and may not be practical enough in size to accompany business travel. The technology in terms of size, speed, greater compatibility, and ergonomics could certainly be improved.
Summary: This scanner is very different from the scanners I have used in the past. I am used to the "flat bed" type of scanner, which has a glass surface (that never stays clean), and it scans by the light passing underneath the glass.
Summary: Meets my expectations. Works great for converting docs to PDF. Small enough for between my keyboard and monitor, even flips the post scanned page back to me. I only scan a few pages a day but this feels like I am saving hours!
Summary: I purchased three of these scanners. These small scanners are the best for scanning to PDF. However, they are not the best for light text. For standard pages they are the best. The small foot print is great for the desktop.
