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 international reviews
- 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.
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.
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.
I just wanted a simple solution that could sync easily and that is what the Doxie Go does brilliantly.
Being so small, literally just wider than an A4 sheet, light and battery operated, you can walk around your home with it in your hand and crank through a pile of paper. The battery lasts a good while which means that you can happily munch through 100 sheets and not worry too much about it running out of battery. Then simply plug it into your computer via the USB cable and it syncs beautifully to the Doxie software which is perfectly simple in its approach and regularly improved. The scans transfer to the app where you can edit, crop, rotate and export as needed.
I usually just transfer the scans into Evernote so that they are on all my devices and searchable there, however, you can save to pdf, jpeg and all the usual formats including word - which means that a scan can become an editable document in no time at all.
I really like the build quality of the Doxie Go and you can happily upgrade the storage capacity if you feel that the included memory isn't enough.
The standard scan resolution is absolutely fine for most documents, but you can quickly change the resolution by holding down the scan button... the only button on the device. You now have something that can archive treasured photographs at a quality that can display or print well.
There is a useful slider on the document feeder which will keep the edges from wondering if it is a business card or an A5 flyer for instance. It provides straighter scans which cuts down editing time.
I have never, in all the time I have used the Doxie Go had a jam. Business cards need a little push to help the thicker paper go through, however, that is not an issue.
This is a very useful scanner to have to hand that does what it does really well and without fuss - it always sits within arms length of my desk. It is quick and easy to get scans onto a computer at a realistic price - why have anything more complicated than this? I love it!
And you may think paying nearly £200 for a scanner is ridiculous when you can find much cheaper options (c. £50) on Amazon. But honestly, the size, speed and intuitive performance of the Doxie is just f-ing fabulous. It's tiny; can be slotted into a drawer for safe keeping when not in use, and doesn't need to be hooked up to either a computer or charger to function.
Yes, scanning hundreds of old documents is a ballache, but it’s just part of the process. Once that initial phase is done, things couldn't be easier if you stay organised.
Highly recommend the Doxie to anyone if you're looking for a compact and easy-to-use scanner to help quell the tidal wave of post and paperwork.
Although I have to feed sheets individually, at the standard 300dpi (plenty for OCR documents) the scanning is fast enough I do not spend long waiting between sheets.
Sometimes sheets go in a little wonky, but the software is very good at detecting and automatically adjusting this (or if I am feeling fussy, it is obvious when this has happened, so I just rescan immediately).
I have been pleasantly surprised at how well it copes with folded, creased or otherwise damaged sheets - most sheets go through top first, and the few that don't have almost all gone through bottom first. The Doxie software easily allows you to rotate any sheets that need it before saving elsewhere.
I did have one problem page - the Doxie took it in OK and then stopped mid scan. Top first, bottom first, nothing seemed to work - although the sheet seemed in perfect condition. Solved with a document protector.
it works very well and very east to use the scans are pretty good I use it in 600 Dpi mode
the software that comes with it is very usable just the thumbnails are a bit small which matters when you are trying to Identify individual pages of the scans to staple together into a PDF document I have stapled together pages from other documents buy mistake because of this I think the software needs updating to make this task a bit easier
I would like the scanner to have a scan to PDF feature built in I would like to be able to press a button and to be able to keep putting pages in through the scanner and when you have finished doing that press the button and it converts them to a PDF document this would make life a lot easier than having to search and select the pages manually which is very time consuming especially when you have dozens of pages to look through
Even if you could select a folder to put the scans into so as to keep them separate so there easier to find and convert to PDF
Its a very good scanner and would recommend to others just bare in mind the issues I have highlighted.
The reason for this review is we discovered this week that the power charger has malfunctioned and was not able to charge the doxie(but we could only charge the Doxie via USB).
As we had the Doxie for over a year and was out of warranty we emailed the company requesting a new power charger. One simple email to the company and within 4 days we received a new charger free of charge. I am extremely happy with the Doxie and customer service of this company.
I keep it at the side of my desk these days and as soon as I've read my incoming mail, whatever needs to be recorded is immediately scanned then shredded and at long last, I've managed to get on top of my "filing".
It is very simple to use and has immediately solved the "problem" of masses of bills/letters etc., lying alongside my old scanner/printer to be scanned "one day". With the Doxie, I scan *immediately*.
More than a good buy, it has been a very good investment.
The scanner has built in software so it was very easy to switch on and attach to a computer to transfer the scans. Because there is built in memory and battery it is a completely portable solution. You can leave it next to your computer, take it to the office, take it whilst out and about visiting clients etc and scan on the go, then upload the scans when you return to base and connect it to your computer.
The software that comes with the device is intuitive and simple to use. You can stick several pages seamlessly into one document and there is the option to send the scans direct to Evernote or share via email straight from the software. It all works very well.
There is an option to buy a wireless card for the device which allows you to wi-fi the scans to your computer without connecting the lead, although Amazon reviews seem to be be mixed as to how well this works. The battery in the scanner charges quickly when charging via USB and has lasted through some pretty major bulk scanning sessions.
In terms of the downsides: for me the only key area for improvement would be to allow the paper to feed more easily. if the sheet you are scanning is not flat it can be a bit fiddly to feed it into the scanner (perhaps because the feed gap height is very narrow) but with documents in decent condition it's not a major problem. The other thing to note is that there is no auto/ bulk feed capability.
Overall this is easily the best home/ small office minimalist scanning solution I've found. If you only get standard documents (A4 or very slightly bigger seems to be the limit) and reasonably low daily volume this could well suit you extremely well. It's easy to charge, scan, carry on your travels with you and has good software - highly recommended.
update 4th Jan...blown away , just had an email from Doxie customer care to tell me they are gifting me a travel case! What a great company and such a cool gesture. Great company to deal with.
Update 8th Jan....as promised Doxie sent me a travel case as a gift, really impressed with it. Solid robust case with magnetic closure. Will complement my Doxie and allow me to take it on my travels safely in my bag. Thank you Doxie.x
Supplied software is intuitive and works well. Easy to manipulate scans, "staple" scans together, rename, rotate and then send to Evernote, Dropbox etc. One wish: I'd like to be able to zoom in on scan preview to help me read dates etc. when scanning a pile of similar documents to help with appropriate naming before sending to Evernote.
Follow up a few days later: The company got back to me to answer all my comments after my initial review. It works well with iPad with an SD card and Camera Kit. You can zoom in with the Quick View feature button. Damaged or curled paper can be fed from the other end and then rotated in the supplied software or fed with a photo sleeve. VEry impressed with this company and this scanner. My filing cabinet is much slimmer. Just have lots of paper to shred now!
