1.0 out of 5 stars it's rubbish, 31 Oct 2008
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Planon DocuPen RC800 - Hand-held scanner - 400 dpi - USB (Personal Computers)
Given the two widely differing reviews, I decided to risk it.

There is a big need for a product that is a small portable scanner -but the Docupen isn't it and it is hard to believe something that performs so poorly can be marketed for as long as it has.

You just cannot get the scanner to move slow enough to scan a whole page. It will start scanning a few inches down from the top and decide to stop before it reaches the bottom no matter how consistently and smoothly you move it.

There is no point using the offer to buy this with a Gb mini-SD since the according to the documentation and my own experience the device won't work with cards of large capacity.

Brought mine from Save4, who gave me a refund but kept 15% for a product that does not perform as advertised, so I'll not be dealing with them again.

Docupen is rubbish. Someone invent something that actually works.
