I bought this scanner because it will operate independent of a PC. It scans to a microSD card (not included). The scanner will not scan direct to a PC, but can be connected by USB to download scanned images to the PC without having to remove the microSD card. Be sure and hit the arrow key on the scanner when connected to the PC or it won't recognize it. This wasn't clear in the instructions. Pros: Will scan up to 8.5" width although it says A4 size. Very easy to operate and very light. Good quality scanned images color or B&W. Scans quickly and has adjustable guides to get straight scans on small receipts. Adjustable resolution. Includes cleaning card, white balance card and handy carrying bag. Cons: Runs on batteries only, 4 AA (included), no AC adapter. Scans to jpeg, but has OCR software for PC which I haven't tried. Limited instructions. No direct scan to PC. Requires separate purchase of microSD card. No immediate feedback of scan quality until image is moved to PC. This scanner would be great for the person on the go to organize travel receipts or email scanned documents. I gave it 5 stars for the application I intended to use it for. It is not a replacement for a high quality desktop scanner.

Product Overview

PS-4200 Portable Scanner is a innovative standalone portable scanner that instantly preserves important documents, letters, or recipes, recording its contents onto a memory card for later retrieval on your computer. As you feed in a paper and push the scan button, its sensitive color image sensor scans at high (600 dpi) or standard (300 dpi) resolution, saving images as JPEG files stored on an inserted microSD card (sold separately). You can download your images to your computer using the included USB cable. Its built-in display shows the selected resolution, remaining battery life, and memory status. Unlike similar devices currently on the market, the PS-4200 Portable Scanner does not require a computer or learning a new software program, and it takes very little space to operate, store or transport. PS-4200 Portable Scanner is good for scanning documents, pictures & anything else up to A4 size. 600 or 300 dpi, color or monochrome scanning option is provided. JPEG files can be saved directly to your micro SD or to your computer via USB port. Driver free to download for Windows 7 / Vista / XP and Mac OS10.4 or above (direct plug-in, driver installation not required).
