Product Description

Document clutter doesnt stand a chance! With Ivations 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, MagicScan direct plugin (no drivers necessary) software CD, user manual, USB cable, and a handy pouch. Three 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.

A Video Review of the Ivation Portable Scanner, June 23, 2013
CKE (USA)
     
This review is from: Document Scanner Mobile Scanner Handheld Scanner 900DPI Color Mono Handyscan For Document, Photo, Receipts, Books - Optical Character Recognition (Ocr) Software Included (Office Product)
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.


Portable, Easy To Use Inexpensive, June 29, 2013

This review is from: Document Scanner Mobile Scanner Handheld Scanner 900DPI Color Mono Handyscan For Document, Photo, Receipts, Books - Optical Character Recognition (Ocr) Software Included (Office Product)
It's a fairly simple device. Simply connect the USB to Micro USB connector cable to your computer, set up the software to your computer and fill in any software questions, such as color, resolution number, etc.

The unit runs on 3 (AAA) batteries that supply plenty of charge for the scanning light. It also needs a micro USB card (which is not included). Get at least a 2 GB micro USB card. The buttons are also very simple. There are tiny indicators for battery charge level, color vs. B/W, resolution (up to 900 'dpi'), and the numbers of pictures scanned and whether the scanner is connected to the computer. The secret to scanning is to hold the item to be scanned flat and to slowly go over the document in a straight manner. If you swerve, you may get a blurred area. If you hit a bump in the surface, you may get a shadowed area.

After scanning, simply stop the scanner, plug the USB cable into your computer and download your images. At maximum scanning 'dpi', it takes.


Does not take good scans, August 29, 2013
Katherine Brown "Eiranthia" (TN)
  
I was very excited about this product. As a university student I wanted to be able to scan books that are not allowed at the library for later studying. I looked around at several different hand scanners and decided on this one. I have practiced with this scanner for over 150 pages. not a single one turned out correctly. The words would skip or bundle up etc. I tried it at many different speeds to see if it was just me. They all messed up .I always had it on a flat service. I practiced and practiced and practiced. I really really wanted and still want this product to work. But it just simply doesn't. I'm really disappointed. I'm going to try again later today but I doubt it will work this time either. I plan to return it if possible.
