Product Description

Document clutter doesn't stand a chance! With Ivation's Magic-Wand-like Handheld Scanner, you can easily scan and record photos, documents, articles, newspaper clippings, book excerpts, receipts and virtually anything else printed on paper or presented on screen. The PS4300 can operate on batteries independently and store recorded data on a micro-SD card. Alternatively, you can connect the scanner to your computer using a standard USB cable and scan directly onto the computer. It is even compatible with iPad and Android tablets - simply establish a USB connection (iPad may need adapter) to copy scanned images from scanner to tablet.

Included in the box is: PS4300 900 DPI (Dots Per Inch) Portable Scanner, Direct Plugin (no drivers necessary) Software CD, User Manual, USB cable, Three AAA Alkaline Batteries, & a Handy Pouch.
The 3 included AAA alkaline batteries power the device when not used with computer, and last up to approximately 300 full-page scans. Scanning speeds vary depending on DPI settings: a 900 DPI scan in color takes about 9 seconds, while a monochromatic scan takes about 8 seconds. At 600 DPI, a color scan takes 4 seconds, and a monochromatic one just 2 seconds. Switch the sensor to 300 DPI for 2-second color scans and a quick 1- second mono scan.

The included MagicScan software features full-fledged optical character recognition (OCR) capabilities. With picture direct scanning, scanned images are inserted directly into your software of choice (e.g. Microsoft Office, MSN, Skype). Supported file formats include JPEG and PDF, and the micro-SD card slot can handle cards up to 32GB in size. A status LCD display lets you know battery life and scanning information among other things, and the device has an auto-off feature that powers it down after 3 minutes of inactivity.

It may be a bit surprising but I think a large variety of people could use out of a portable scanner. As a parent it is very useful for scanning art projects or scrap booking. Students can use it for copying from books or notes at a library. In business, it can be a handy tool for anyone who is doing audits. Finally, someone who collects recipes ay find it useful to use a portable scanner to get a *perfect* copy of a recipe.

The Ivation Portable Scanner is especially handy because it is both small and easy to use. I was able to begin scanning almost immediately (although you will need to have an extra micro SD memory card handy).

Notes-

- Uses 3 AAA batteries which are included

- Also requires a micro SD card in order to scan to a memory card - the micro SD is not included, but they are pretty inexpensive

- Can scan in either color or black/white - color scans are done as PDF files.

- Plug and play easy on a Mac - I simply connected the provided USB cable to my computer from the scanner and I was immediately able to transfer the scans

- My only complaint is that I wish that it tracked/rolled a little smoother... not that it is bad, but if you don't scan the picture while keeping the scanner perfectly straight it causes the picture to have a bit of an arc. The best way to describe it is to think of a squeegee you must keep it perfectly vertical or horizontal or it will leave arcs.

- Comes with a vinyl carrying case.

Final Verdict - I like the Ivation Portable Scanner - it a very simple device that delivers high quality scans. I am impressed at how quickly you are able to go from the box to having a fully functioning scanner - I wish that it tracked/rolled a little bit smoother, but other than that I don't have any complaints.

I was almost required to return this item, because firstly it failed to work because the supplied batteries in a sealed package were completely flat, but with my quick sense, it prompted my awareness to get a pack of brand new batteries costing nearly £5, secondly after successfully kick started its functionality, the cable for the connection to my computer is too hard and stiff as it keeps coming off making connection NOT possible. I had been offered to return this item by the seller/manufacturer but I failed to do because I passed the deadline of the "RETURN DATE". I still have not used this item that much yet, but shall try to use it more later and see if it will function well and productive!,

When you scan using the flatbed scanner, it is possible to use the text mode. In this mode, there is no grey tone in the page. It is not possible to use this scanner inj text mode.

Disappointed that even with a steady hand (ie no shakes or other manual problems) it is almost impossible to get a good copy without some lines of deformation in the copy.
