Incredibly smart, useful and simple.

I've never used a scanner of any description before, but had this out of the box and working beautifully within minutes. the hand-held wand is a very useful tool for documents or research, but the feeder dock is truly amazing. I wanted to scan my old photos into digital form and spent a couple of relaxing, enjoyable afternoons sifting through them and doing just that. I use a Mac and - with the help of an SD card reader - the Pandigital had no problems connecting and being used by my iPhoto package. I did download the accompanying software but haven't used it. The quality is fantastic, and the scanning very smooth. I have had a couple of pix come out with a single line across it near the end, but this is easily retouched if necessary.
It took me a few goes to work out how to reduce editing time by getting the scanned image up the right way the first time, whether in portrait or landscape format. Basically, feed any photo or document into the scanner 'head first' and it will be correct.
Be aware that the hand-held wand must only be rolled across a source in ONE DIRECTION. This is not prominently displayed, but is apparently important. The rollers are very smooth and - even though I stopped and started once or twice, the scan remained steady and without flaws.
Highly recommended bit of kit and an amazing price.
