After reading the other reviews I was concern about the scanner, however, my time and buget was limited and I had a lot of cards to input. So, I decided to give the scanner a try.

I was pleasantly confirmed that I made the right choice. It does have problems recognizing hand written cards and fancy font - which is good for me to know about my own business cards, however, it's real easy to fix when adding notes about my new business associates.

Overall, I really like my scanner, I found the whole system easy to install, the program user friendly, and the set up quick to start scanning - about 5 - 10 minutes. I was able to scan 50 cards, add notes and edit recognition issues within minutes - about 15.

Hope this helps!

I have scanned over 500 cards using this new scanner. It has worked great and recognized over 90% of the content correctly. Only has problems with fancy fonts or cards that are hard to read in the first place. I highly recommend this card scanner!

I bought this scanner solely to scan business cards. It has a slot that is about 4 inches wide so it would probably not be very useful for scanning much else. It does a pretty good job of scanning cards - the software that comes with the scanner is dedicated to business card scanning and keeps an image of the business card as well as doing OCR and assigning the recognized text to various fields (name, position, address, etc.). It only does a fair job of getting the data off the card but it is fairly easy to edit the OCR and reassign the fields. A nice feature is that it can scan in various languages - if the right language is selected it does a better job of getting the field identification right (because addresses are formatted differently in differnt countires). The software can sync with Outlook - which includes adding an image of the business card to the Notes field. Compared with other business card scanners, this seems to be good value. I am using Windows 7 (64 bit) and Outlook 2010 and did not have any trouble installing the scanner and getting the software to work.

I was looking for a duplex card scanner to scan ID/insurance cards at a medical practice. Amazon did not have information on this scanner to say for sure, but some other sites online did note that this is scanner can do double-sided scanning. This is *not* a duplex scanner. The included software allows the user to scan a double-sided card as a single record, but the user must manual scan both sides of the card separately. There are other scanners out there that can scan both sides in a single pass...Ambir and ScanShell both make these types of scanners.

We purchased the card scanner because we acquire a lot of business cards/prospective customers from trade shows. This machine is a life saver - it will scan the card in very quickly and displays the scanned image right away. The contact details (company name, name, address, phone, fax, etc.) are also listed. The only problem we saw was that the card scan was not 100% accurate - it would scan the text correctly, but would populate some of the fields incorrectly. I would probably double-check things out a little bit, especially if the business card is very non-traditional.

We currently use Salesfoce to keep track of these people and you can import this directly. Another great selling point is the fact that it is Windows 7 compatible. At work, we have Windows 7 and XP computers, so it's nice to be able to use this software/machine on any computer.

All in all, it's a great product.

Within 2 hours, I installed, scanned and corrected 150 cards - I'm impressed.

What it does well:
Good text recognition
Clear scans of cards which are saved to the record
Software is easy to use and learn quickly

Not so well:
Doesn't recognize italics or script as text
Has problems with cards with a lot of texture
Need to make sure cards are absolutely flat with no creases, bends, etc
Software font is very small

I've had to go through about 80% of the records to check something, but it has still saved me a TON of time over typing these individually. For the price I didn't expect perfection, but am very very happy.

This product is very nice and easy to use. I installed it easily on a PC running Windows 7 64-bit OS and encountered no problems. It scans quickly and in most cases, accurately. The OCR is good, but it does do some funky things once in a while with cards that may be formatted unusually, it's fairly easy to correct errors, though, and the info appeared automatically in Outlook with no prompting from me.
Overall, it's a very nice item with easy to use, intuitive software. Plus, it's way cheaper than other card scanners.
As for scanning photos, which it claims to do, I don't know, I didn't buy it for that purpose.

This is a pretty handy little gadget to have around... especially when you have hundreds of cards to input into your computer. I just plowed my way through 293 business cards!

It has a hard time reading fancier fonts, and some card layouts trick it as well - so you will probably have to do some sort of editing. But it's a heck of a lot easier than typing it all in from scratch! And importing the data was a breeze.

It was also super easy to install (and I'm very low-tech.)
