I was somewhat skeptical about getting this scanner. It just didn't seem like it should be able to do what it purported to do. But I really needed something like this , and at this price, well... It arrived, sans the micro SD chip, as promised. Since it only functions with the chip, they really should include one, but such is life. The gist of it all is that it works great. It does take some slight practice to make sure that you scan the pages smoothly, but it does most of the work itself. The results are simply amazing. The scans are crystal clear and exactly like the material scanned. I found myself scanning practically everything in sight just for the fun and practice. But it is not a toy. As a lawyer I often find the need to scan documents or reference materials. This tool fits easily in my briefcase with all my books and files. Its best function is that it does need a bulky computer to go with it. It scans right to the micro chip inside it. With a few gigabit chip, you could scan an encyclopedia (not that you would want to). Back at the office I simply plug the chip into a chip reader, or attach the included USB cord, and down load the file in PDF format. Couldn't be easier. Although the soft cover that comes with the scanner is probably suitable, I would, and did, opt for the hard case. It provides a certain comfort level, considering all the other stuff crammed into my briefcase.
