I used to own a portable scanner from a different manufacturer, it did within a few months, and I haven't even used it that often. So before I purchased the next one I did a lot of research, trying to find what would best fit my needs.
I wanted one that would scan to SD card, well there not many around other than what I had before.
Many portables scan to the cloud, which I do not want, especially since most want you to sign up for their own cloud service, none accepted the cloud service I already have.So I ended up purchasing this.
It was extremely easy to set up, there is a huge manual on that CD that explains everything.
I installed the driver and Button Manager only, I do not need all that fancy stuff receipt manager and things like that, I can manage my receipts without special software.
Withing minutes I connected the USB cable and the scanner to my laptop and scanned my first test page.
It automatically noticed that I already ha a folder "my scans" and that's where the scan landed. You have a choice in settings to scan as JPG or PDF, also if color, black/white or gray scale, you can adjust the area you want to scan. So it is all really easy.
Quality of scan is just what I need, I would not scan high resolution photos with a little scanner like this. For me it is all about being able to scan documents when on the road with my laptop.
It fits in my laptop case without making the bag bulky or heavy.
