    "This is definitely not a scanner for the impatient. You really need to work with it to get it to do its job, and in this age of technological advancements, a scanner shouldn't put up such a fight. It's huge, it has confusing settings that render it difficult to use, and the wireless function on it doesn't work well. I would stay away from it and get a smaller, less expensive model from a well known brand. "

    "As a portable scanner, the Scanny-6 Wifi Portronics Scanner works fairly well. I can't say it's one of the best scanners period, however, because it still requires a flat surface and lots of trial and error before I felt comfortable with it. At this price I was hoping for better, actually, but I'll hang on to it for now just because it is still operational."
