I definitely would not recommend this scanner. In order to get a straight, clear scan, I suppose you would have to move the scanner perfectly straight and at a perfect speed across the paper. However, it is pretty much impossible for a person to achieve this precision. After dozens of tries, every single scan was still getting warped -- with one side or both of the scans being elongated and/or shrunk. If you're used to an auto-feed or flatbed scanner which actually returns nice, rectangular scans, you can forget about it with this scanner. All scans end up in a weird trapezoid shape due to this image warping, and the text is badly deformed.

A previous review mentioned they could fix this warping by holding the scanner on each end with one hand -- however this also doesn't work too well. The scanner will still get lightly caught on bumps or wrinkles on the paper, causes one side to move faster than the other, thus causing the warping again. And if you're trying to scan a paper which has been folded (e.g., like a letter) or has creases (or trying to scan something non-flat like your passport or a book), you'll definitely never get a clean scan because the scanner will be getting caught and yanked around by every tiny crease.

If you want good quality, I would go for a flatbed scanner or (if you want the smaller, mobile type like I do) go for a small sheet fed one. For the same reasons people use tripods when trying to take non-shaky pictures at night, a person's hand just isn't steady enough to operate this scanner properly.

The only problem was, I originally wouldn't move the scanner level down the page. This compressed or expanded words on one side of the page. This was corrected by moving the scanner with one hand on either end of the scanner. Since then, scans have been outstanding.

I haven't had any trouble with the scanner so far. I used it almost daily for the first 2 weeks I had it. It only took 2 - 3 practice scans for me to get the hang of using it. I used it to catalog a bunch of recipes from magazines and newspaper clippings so I could finally get rid of them (over 100). As other reviewers mentioned, it is a little difficult to scan near book/magazine bindings, but I just rotated the scanner and scanned either toward or away from the binding and I was able to get what I needed. (Remember, you can always rotate the image in whatever software you're using to look at it.)

The scan quality is decent at both the low and high dpi. The quality is good for both the B&W and color scans. I did have 2 faint lines running down many of the scans so those definitely would not be desirable if you were trying to scan family photos or something like that. I believe the lines are where a couple of the rollers sit or are separated on one edge of the scanner. They are far enough apart that I could probably scan pictures that were smaller in size without loss of quality.

I have only had to change the batteries one time even with leaving it on between scans. Transfer via USB proved to be quite simple and fast. Overall, I found it to be quite useful! It's definitely worth the $39.99 I paid for it!!!
