The scanner is very sturdy and the stand is weighted to stand without falling over. It scans very quickly and has been very helpful in our library. The price is certainly very affordable for a wireless scanner as we had an older one that was very expensive (not this brand). I think it will be invaluable during inventory as we wont be restricted by a cord. It is lightweight and has a manual with all the codes for scanning. It was very easy to set up and we were scanning in minutes out of the box. I would certainly recommend this to anyone looking for a reasonable, efficient scanner for a library or a home office.
