Summary: The good: - It's small and portable. Battery life on two cheap alkaline AAs from IKEA seems to be decent. - It is fully standards-compliant and requires no driver installation whatsoever, it simply writes files to a microSD card and then acts as a standard card reader when plugged into a computer.

Also you will have to be very careful how you scan otherwise the resultant image will be not be square.
