    "An interesting product to virtualize documents. But once I read the amazon reviews the product is a little flimsy and if you want to use more than 2 computers with it you must buy a license for 5 computers. This leads me to believe there are better solutions on the market."

    "When it comes to scanners, Canon is the only name you need to know. A lot of times when you scan a photo, the colors can get washed out and you end up with a image without any of the vibrance of the original. That is not the case with this model. Crisp, clean scans that are identical to the original are what you get. Would buy again."
