Rated 1 out of 5 by from Never connects Every time I need at least an hour to be messing with the scanner for it to actually connect. No matter what I do it does not connect and it makes it complicated to scan anything.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Compact scanner. The unit is compact and portable so it is great for when we are travelling. We have used it and it is slow and not suitable for multiple documents but great for what we need.
