I have to start this review by stating, my wife would give this SIX stars of Amazon supported such a rating. She absolutely loves this little, fast, portable scanner.
One of the tasks she's saddled herself with -- and the reason I bought her this portable scanner -- is the quest to archive her entire family's existence. To that end, she has our home office filled with large boxes of old, old photo albums. Additionally, she will be going "on site" to one of her great aunt's houses to scan photos that are (for some reason) not allowed to leave the premises. We thought about bringing a full-size flatbed scanner, but that seemed impractical. Plus, at about 30 seconds per photo, it would take her many, many hours.
On a whim, I picked up the Visioneer Mobility cordless scanner. This thing is absolutely amazing and ultra-convenient. In just a few evenings, in front of the TV watching "The Big Bang Theory" reruns (recall that this is a cordless, COMPUTER-less scanner), she managed to archive over 2,500 photos from my side of the family. Sitting tethered to a computer desk with a flatbed scanner, this accomplishment would have easily taken her ten times as long. The photos are all scanned at 300 DPI, and unprocessed, meet or exceed the quality of my $400 Epson flatbed scanner. With the supplied 2GB SD card, we calculated that you could fit ~12,000 4x6 scanned prints before needing to offload them to a PC or file server.
My wife has thanked me at least a dozen times for this handy, dandy little scanner (our agreed-upon limit is three "thanks" per gift), so in retrospect, the Visioneer Mobility mobile cordless scanner has been better received than any previous gift I've given, exceeding the appreciation of diamond earrings and expensive French perfume. If only I knew the secret to a woman's heart earlier ...
If you have mass quantities of photos or documents to scan, pick up this scanner right now. Even if you already have a high quality flatbed scanner, you'll find that this quick, handy, portable scanner will soon become the primary/exclusive method of importing photos and documents.
