I absolutely love this scanner. I have been working to diminish my stuffed file drawers by throwing away what I don’t need and scanning what I want to keep. If you compare the prices of large-format scanners, this is an unbelievable bargain. Most importantly, this scanner creates clear, high-quality scans.
I’m an artist and work on 11 x 17″ paper so the size is perfect. It works like a dream. I’m on a brand new iMac 5k, latest software. I use this scanner with the Apple image capture- a quick fit in PS or image capture adjustment works great. Great scanner for the price.
Working with scanners on Linux desktops is made easier with scanning tools such as XSane, Simple Scan and Gscan2pdf to many Linux users. However, the staff at the Ministry of the Interior in Uruguay still find it painful to scan with these popular tools.
This is a wonderful little scanner that replaced my huge printer/scanner/copier. Once you get the knack of using the software interface, it’s literally one button and 15 seconds to scan in a doc. At a standard 300 dpi for document (e.g., PDF) scanning it’s faster than my old scanner. And I love that it doesn’t need an external power source.
This thin scanner takes up little space and installed quickly on the first pass. I run Windows 7 and it recognized the driver right away. To be honest, this was the fastest and least complicated installation I have ever had for a new piece of hardware. I would recommend this to a friend in a heartbeat, and already have.
I love this scanner. It is thin and lightweight and barely takes up any space. Yet, it behaves beautifully like the bigger units. I would highly recommend this product to anyone looking for a way to transfer information from paper and/or books to their computer. It truly performs the way it claims to.
I wanted a simple flat-bed scanner that will work with Win10. It makes very good scans. Unit is very light and uses USB power so no power supply is needed. I was skeptical about this but it works well. Bottom line is that for personal use if you don’t need a feeder this is a very good scanner.
