    "The VuPoint Magic Wand is an inexpensive, fairly well-regarded 'wand' style scanner, i.e. you run the scanner over the piece of paper, rather than placing a piece of paper inside the scanner. This is one of the lower-end models and refurbished, a decent choice for someone on a budget who wants a scanner."

    "I homeschool my kids and needed an all-in-one home office solution for all the printing and scanning I do on a daily basis. First of all, this thing is huge and heavy - seriously. Secondly, I'm not the best when it comes to office equipment, but good grief, it took forever to set up. The instructions aren't veru clear and really should be worded better for people who might not be familiar with this sort of thing. However, after my *neighbor* finished setting it up for me, it works like a charm. I highly recommend!"

    "If you're looking for a multi-purpose thing, this is the best. Brother is consistent with their quality, hard to argue with the results. If you're looking for just a paper scanner, you can probably find one cheaper....but it's always better in my eyes to get a multitool."

    "This is an all in one machine. It will scan your documents but does not have the speed or precision of a stand alone scanner. The scanner was somewhat slow and the images were not as high quality as I wanted. Scanning a lot of documents requires you to constantly be present as opposed to the better scanners where you can just line it up and let it work. "
