    "This scanner is fairly compact and works well, but it's obvious that it's not intended for using it on the go. I'd recommend this for anyone with limited space in their office, or really just anyone who wants devices with lower profiles. But, avoid it if you do a lot of traveling."

    "What's really unique about this scanner is the level of detail you can get out of it. I've had a lot of scanners that might be faster, but none of them have gone past 600 before. So you get the quality from this, but be advised it's a little slower."

    "This works well enough for simple items, like a receipt. Those who want to preserve special photos may want another machine. It is also a little on the slow side. But it's a good choice for occasional non-essential scans."
