    "This Epson does not scan precisely. It can add new color marks or stretch things out. It performs like a low-end model but isn't priced low."

    "This is exactly the sort of product I expect to see in this search. The brand is an excellent printer manufacturer and the features are just what I'd need in this item. The user reviews could be more positive, but generally this is a good looking product. The price is maybe a tad too high for me though."

    "I was at a recent business convention and this scanner was a huge help in cataloging potential associates' business cards. I was able to transfer them to my digital contacts and use the card as the profile photo. The battery life was a bit low, and it could be a bit awkward getting a good scan, but otherwise I'm impressed."
