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.
I purchased this to replace a ScanSnap iX100 scanner. I liked the idea that it could scan directly to SD card without being attached to a computer-true portability. Unfortunately, beauty is only skin deep, and when you peer into the inner workings of this Doxie scanner, it isn't the end-all answer.
Let me start by saying I scanned 379 documents directly to the included SD card and then downloaded them wirelessly into my iPad - so that system works fine. But my first issue was the size of the PDF files compared to the size of the files the ScanSnap produces. For example, a multiple page photograph enriched document produced a 10.5MB size file with Doxie. That same file with ScanSnap was 3.5MB. Three times the size. And that difference continued throughout all types of scans.
Another issue I found in scanning my 379 documents - what if you're in the field, scan a customers invoice, give it back to them, and then when you get home, you see the scan is crooked, or not the right contrast, etc. It's too late at this point to scan it again. I had 5-10 scans in my 379 that would have been unacceptable if I was in a real world and not experimenting in the office.
Next, the software for this scanner is pathetic. It shows you thumbnails, but only lets you rotate the image - no crop, no contrast, not much of anything UNLESS you are connected to a laptop and using the full software package. But that defeats the portability. I want to be able to scan documents in the field, download them to the iPad, enhance, crop, rotate, and then send them to the cloud storage. I can't do that with just the iPad.
And if you use the full software suite to adjust the scan to "Photos", then in the field, with your iPad software App, you can't change that setting. So every receipt will be scanned as a photo...part of the large file sizes.
And last, it doesn't really save time to scan directly to the SD card. When you get home and import the documents, in my case, I had 379 imported documents, with little thumbnails, that I couldn't file quickly. Multiple page documents have to be "Stapled" together. The problem is, all of the little thumbnails look the same (if your scanning the same looking invoices). You constantly have to click on the next document to see where the last document is that you want to "staple". This is very time consuming. With the Scan Snap, if I scan a 5 page invoice, at the end of the scan, it automatically puts those 5 pages into a singe PDF file.
Overall, while I like the idea of scanning to an SD card, this Doxie needs a much more robust app for the iPad, the ability to change the settings from Photo to Document without having to be connected to a computer, and a more streamlined way to group pages together other than hunting for the last page of particular series.
I'm returning the Doxie and continuing to use the Scan Snap until I find a better alternative - the Doxie is not it. And I will close by saying, this is my opinion, with my limited 379 scans and your mileage may vary with this product.
Top reviews from other countries
- Light weight, compact, portable with build-in rechargeable battery.
- Decent scan quality
- While not the fastest of all scanners, the speed is ok for the occasional scan. You do not want to scan a 50+ page document with this though.
- Pleasing design.
- Overall good software with decent OCR and clean, easy interface.
- It comes with a USB port and a separate (round) charging plug. The enclosed charger is for the round charging port. However, you can also charge via USB. Why don't they include a USB charger and get rid of the separate charging port?
- The time until the app finds the scanner in your network can be very long.
- No auto-update feature for the app. Whenever a new version of the software is released, they send you to their website to re-download and re-install the software - cumbersome! Get your software on the Mac App Store!
- This is the deal breaker for me: The document feeder is very sensitive and highly unreliable. If the document has as little as a small wrinkle or holes from a stapler (obviously after you remove the clip) etc., it won't reliably feed the document straight into the Doxie. Also, the Doxie itself often creates a kink on the upper left hand side of the document. Super annoying and a huge waste of time...!
Hence, only two stars from me despite overall good concept.
That's not to say it's without its flaws - if you are scanning something thicker than a few sheets, or with staples, or frayed edges, be prepared for a little frustration and compromise. Documents that are yellow in colour can confuse it, too, as the hardware/software uses a yellow background to decide where your document 'isn't'.
However you can get round most things with a bit of ingenuity. For simple scanning of A4 and below it's perfect. Spare batteries are also very cheap (I found a generic NP-120 camera battery works fine).
I'd been thinking about "going paperless" for a while, but thought it would be too hard. Enter the Doxie. With the built in memory card and wifi, you can scan a bunch of items in and then load them to your ipad/computer all in one go. From there, you can "staple" multiple scans together to create multipage PDFs. It does OCR too, so you can search your PDFs for specific text strings. And to top it all off, the app integrates with Dropbox, Google Drive, and Evernote.
The best part? The app is super intuitive....I haven't had to look up how to do anything I've wanted to do, so far.
Who is the Doxie not for? Someone doing industrial amounts of scanning. If you're a normal person, the Doxie will handle everything you can throw at it. These days, bills, etc, get put in a pile, and I scan them while watching football every weekend, and then PDF and file them once a month.
The not so good - simplex not duplex is a real pain, as is not having a document feeder. And why is it soooo slow at importing images from the Doxie's SD card? I scanned about 500 documents this evening and it's taking 5+ seconds to import each one = about 40 minutes! It's like going back to 1990. From my cameras SD card that much data would have taken... 30 seconds? It's no deal breaker, I can just leave it running (while I write this review!).
So far, very impressed. Got totally fed up of my (2nd) Scansnap - confusing, unreliable software, having to have wires trailing everywhere, laptop on, press buttons after every single scan... it just drove me crazy and willnow only be used for large (over 10 pages) documents.
Well, I have no more to say just yet and the import is still only a third of the way through, very odd. If it takes this long to transfer a few jpgs, how long is it going to take to convert them all to PDF and OCR them?!
UPDATE: Day 2.... Preview of scanned images - it would be really handy to be able to see what I'd just scanned to make sure it scanned correctly. I've now done over 800 scans and there have been a few duff images, but only two where a document was messed up. That's a great success rate but even the low failure rate is enough to mean I have to check every single one before converting to pdf. I would definitely have paid the extra £25 for the Wifi one if (?) that gives you a wireless preview after very scan.
Software - it's pretty simple/intuitive and a billion light years ahead of the Scansnap's overly-complex nightmare of confusion and often simply refusing to connect.
Would I buy another? Yes, 100%.
It's reasonably quick at scanning, at 300 dpi, but obviously does slow down when scanning at 600 dpi, but it's still fine. Transfer to the PC is easy, the PC sees it as a storage device and you can copy off the JPG files. If you want PDF files, then it will do that but you need to download the Doxie PC application. And this is easy to use too.
It just seemed to me that when the import function in the PC application was used, it seemed to take longer to read the scanned image files from the scanner, don't know why this should be. That is a little frustrating. If you're only interested in JPG scans then you don't need to use the application software to transfer them to the PC.
My only gripe so far, is that there is a preview mode in the application software which allows some basic editing of the scanned image, cropping, automatic rotation, contrast adjustment, but the preview mode shows the full A4 page, but you can't actually zoom in on the preview, and the preview image is just far too small for you to determine if the image requires any adjustment. It's a very silly limitation which Doxie really need to sort out.
Battery powered, portable, very compact, doesn't take up much desk space. Great design.
