This review is from: C-PEN 3.5 Scanning Pens (Personal Computers)
Using bluetooth with this scanner seems to slow it down, on my PC at least. When used with the USB cable it is very quick. When scanning from books it is incredibly fast and accurate and only marginally less so on newspapers and magazines.
One tip I picked up from another Amazon Review of a scanner is to use a ruler to guide the scanner, if possible, as this improves accuracy (and speed), particularly if you are a beginner.
Not perfect, but I haven't heard of anyone finding a better hand held scanner and I can't imagine how any student can get by without one of these.
