Good buy but with some drawbacks
on June 30, 2013
This was highly recommended and I can see why. It is made to order and fits the scanner very well. Quite well designed. It does the job it is supposed to do and protects the scanner. You can also use the scanner without taking it out of the case. However there are 03 main drawbacks as I see it.
- It add weight and heft to what should be (and is) a portable scanner. So you trade of some portability for better protection.
- Connecting the USB to the scansnap port is bit tricky when the scanner is in the case. It normally takes a couple of tries to get it right.
- Most annoying is the issue when you are scanning. The cover opens up and lies flat on the surface. This should normall facilitate the movement of the paper through the scanner (scanner scans horizontally). However the little velcro strip at the end of the case tends to 'catch' the paper as it is coming out of the scanner and that tends to mess up the scans some times. Not sure how to fix it but it can be quite annoying at times.
So overall it is a good buy for the scanner but think it could have been much better designed.
