I love it! ...mostly,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
--Small, I can easily carry it to and from work
--Acts in stand-alone mode (no drivers required)
--Fast, quiet, duplexes
--"Skip blank page" works fine
--Feeds almost anything. I'm archiving family records now--feeds almost anything up to 100-year-old letters, card stock, stacks of photos.
--TWAIN and ISIS drivers, that the Fujitsu does not have
--Paper path is less angled than an all-in-one ADF's 180 degrees.
--Easy to clear paper jam
--Deskew generally works, but not always. I scan a stack of veiably-sized items, so I often do not use the paper guides. It's pretty gppd about keeping things straight.
--Does not like onionskin paper
--Takes 2 USB ports unless I want to pay $35 for an AC adapter
--Black-and-white (1 bit) mode does not really like anything except crisp black test. Typewritten text, of which I have reams, does not come in well, I scan in grayscale or color. Have not played with the sensitivity
--No output tray
--I'm not at all pleased with the quality of scanned photos, but I suppose that's to be expected. I have an Epson Perfection for that.
--Scanner software will handle only a few variations. Button can be assigned only to one
--Will only scan to 14" long
Have not tried OCR
I like it. I'm glad I bought it.

Though the scanning speed may slow down a bit, you can use the scanner only with one USB without AC Adapter.

You can buy AC/USB adapter that are sold for iPod Touch / iPhone / iPad and any MP3 player that requires USB cable. This adapter should cost less than 3 bucks shipped. My Palm pixi plus came with this adapter. Same with iPad.

What about the photo scanning disappointed you? I don't suppose you could upload an example scan of a photo? My main use will be document scanning, but I also have a stack of old snapshots I want to quickly scan to a digital archive. I'm not bothered about top quality, but would be good to know that the scanner does not produce physical artifacts like scratch lines, or terrible color reproduction. Thanks!
