We love this BUT only after you figure it out the finer details. My wife wants to scan all of our old photos pre-digital so I got her this to help with that mission (we have MANY photos). I have 3 scanners or all in ones in my house and I will say the Doxie Plus is the ONLY way to go for mass scanning images that are 8x10 or smaller. That is all you need to know on the positive and now I will address the issues I had. I am a techi so I assume this can be used without any reading but that is not he case.
I did glance over documentation and see that it has built in memory but you can add more via the SD slot. So I grabbed a spare 64gb card and stuck it in there. It would not power on and stop blinking like it was supposed to. After digging I find out that it ONLY supports special SD cards (really!!!!) That is absolutely ridiculous, but there is actually plenty of built in memory.
So I removed the SD card and it powers up fine. In the process of trying to figure out the bootup problem (having standard SD card in slot), I tried to locate a "Calibration PDF" on their website. This is the sheet you run through the scanner to calibrate it. Can you believe they make you buy that if you lose it! Another blunder in my opinion. My wife had the calibration page but I am letting you know so if you buy a used one you better make sure the calibration card is in there or your will have to buy another one if the calibration is ever needed again (not sure why you would but just letting you know).
Once the scanner is turned on the light is green (300 dpi scan). If you press the button again, it goes to Orange which is 600dpi. They should have a simple sticker above the power button telling you this but they don't and they should allow you to set a default setting which they don't.
We are doing photos so we did the scans at 600 dpi which still went plenty fast enough. 300dpi is REALLY fast (ie for documents).
After you scan all of your photos, you have to open the software to import the scanned photos. BUT, when you click on the "Import" button in top right corner, it has not completed the import process. After you select all the images on the screen, you have to click on the SAVE button down below actually save them to your local drive. Why they do not allow you to just click the import and have the save process as part of that I do not know. It is just one extra step you have to do to save the photos.
But even with these problem I still give this thing 5 stars. My wife is having to use our Epson 7510 for the larger pictures and ones already in the scrap book. The speed and ease of using the Doxie Plus is outstanding. I am sure this product is like everything. The folks who design it and package it, and write the manuals, etc, never actually use it so they have no idea on the simple and stupid mistakes they make.
Bottom line, buy one, you will be glad you did :)
1) The Doxie does allow the use of SD cards up to 32GB. And it should be formatted in FAT32. They are considering putting a sticker or some other means of letting customers know that 32GB is the max. In my opinion it might be easier and more effective to update the firmware to allow for much larger SD cards since these are the norm, not the exception in 2015.
2) After doing some extensive scanning of not only photos, but documents (ie medical records), it is evident that the saving process designed by Doxie is most ideal. We scanned many photos and documents and the documents we saved as PDF's where the photos were saved as JPG's. Also, the photos were separated by child and year. So I found my original thought on this to be a little misguided.
3) Doxie has stated that the calibration card has to be the original printed card. It is a heavier card stock and printing on a 8x11 sheet of paper would not work. You can contact them about getting a Calibration card if yours is missing.
I take pride in offering detailed and accurate reviews so I wanted to clarify these issues. But nothing changes on the fact that this device is an awesome little scanner and I am sure you will be happy with it.
UPDATE: The company has addressed the paper feeding issue and they have reached out to me to see if I like it better. I haven't had enough time to give it a full assessment, but their effort to make their product better and to try and make their customers happy has made me change my review from a 1 star to 3 star. (I may change the stars as I spend more time with this scanner.)
I always thought that Amazon customer service is the best in the world. Well, there is a new kid on the block that even Amazons CS can learn something from - Apparent!
I left a 3 star review (can read below). I did not think it was a bad review. But Dan from Apparent thought that anything less than 5 stars is fail. He contacted me and suggested that maybe I had a lemon and suggested he ships me another one. Well, I live in Israel and most vendors on Amazon refuse to ship one item and here is a guy who will ship me also a replacement? But that was not all! A week before I managed to drop the scanner on its head and while it continues working, the power socket broke and the electrician who fixed it could not find a proper replacement so he hard wired a cable in place. Never mind, said Dan and nevertheless shipped a new scanner (and no need to ship back the broken one back). But even that is not all! One of the items I was complaining about is that the scanner will not take very old photographs that are printed on a very thick cardboard. So Dan from Apparent suggested that maybe the scanner that is more right for me is the Doxie flip. And shipped both. I must be dreaming…
So this is a revised review for the Doxie Go Plus and later on, there will be a review of Doxie Flip.
The battery – I complained that after 100 scans the battery was out of power. To tell the truth, I did fully charge the battery but that was a few weeks before and while I thought that some power will leak out I believed that it is mostly charged. The new scanner I received scanned 360 pages, and the battery was still going strong (but I was out of power….)
The charger – I complained of a need to haul a charger as it is the old kind of charger, like old cell phone. However, there is no need to haul it around. The USB 2 cable that is supplied with the scanner can charge the scanner just as well. It takes longer (about 4 hours) but the most important thing is, no need to haul around multiple of chargers (if one has more than 360 scans to do) but only one with the ability to switch cables.
The feeder – I complained that it will not feed a page that is not strait as an arrow and will try to twist it around. But even for that there is a solution: adjust the rails to the size of the page and the twisting around of the page is minimized. But there is even a better solution: Apparent shipped me a sleeve for large pages and VOILA – twisting disappeared completely!
I complained that the scanner was finishing the job before the end of the page – I guess the old scanner was really a sick puppy. The new one did not have these problems at all
Very old photographs on thick card board – well, they still won't go thru but sometimes the supplied sleeve will help even with those.
All in all, an excellent scanner and an outstanding customer service

I really wanted to like this product but I cannot. The nice features first: it is compact and very nice looking. The scanned images can be stored in the scanner memory or on USB thumb drive or SD card. The box (that you buy separately) fits very snug and together it looks like a product that a lot of thought went into it HOWEVER
1) The battery is good and you can scan a good number of scans but after about 100 scans the battery needed recharging and sure as hell the charger was left at home (why I did not have the charger with me? because the snug nice box does not have a room for it)
2) The charger is the kind that has an EHX socket (like the old phones, laptops and earphones do) So it is another charger that one has to haul around. Why in the world, when manufacturers are moving to micro-USB (so all you need is one charger and one cable for different appliances) did they put this EHX socket.
3) The feeder will not feed a page that is not strait as an arrow. If the page you are trying to scan has a little rip or was earmarked, the scanner will twist it around and the scan will come unusable
4) Many times the scanner decided to end the scan before the end of the page (some pages have few lines on the top and few on the bottom, the scanner will scan the top and then decide the page ended and will stop the scan before it reached the bottom, so I had to input the page twice: ones from the top and once from the bottom)
5) If you are not hauling a computer (or device that can check the scans: tablet or phone with OTG cable) you arrive home to find that at least 20 percent of the scans are not good - would have been really nice to include a little screen on which one could see if the scan was good.
6) Some old pictures (very old pictures were printed on thick paper) will not go thru properly and the scanner will twist them
