Ratings and Reviews

Customer reviews

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Really fast. Small profile. Needs and 'off' switch. Really impressed out of the box. Its small and stylish. The scanning speed is excellent and I would really recommend it on this basis alone. The software isn't bad either. Only gripe is that it could do with a proper off switch given the cost.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good value It is coping well with the work, it's just a little slow in transferring the scan to the computer, but this could be due to our system. Good value and would purchase another if required elsewhere in office.
