    The included carry pouch, cleaning cloth and white balance calibration sheet are just some good example of a well thoughtful product. The manual are well written, and the menu of the scanner itself is easy to navigate and understand. Scanning option are PDF/JPG in 3 DPI setting.
    The included carry pouch, cleaning cloth and white balance calibration sheet are just some good example of a well thoughtful product. The manual are well written, and the menu of the scanner itself is easy to navigate and understand. Scanning option are PDF/JPG in 3 DPI setting. LOW = 300, MID = 600, HIGH = 1050 Max 1050 DPI setting great for text and images. I was able to scan a magazine page, and using the included ABBYY Fine Reader OCR 10 it was able to convert it to text and picture as you can see in the video. The battery takes about 2.5 hours to charge and last quiet a while. The only tricky part about this type of scanner in general is you have to run the scanner across the document you're scanning perfectly straight. Please note a retail unit was sent to me for a fair and honest review.

    The preview screen can be zoomed in allowing you to check image quality before moving on to the next document. Easy to use. With a modest micro SD card (the one I'm using is 8 GB) will hold thousands of scans. Battery life seems good. I've had it for about a week, charged it as soon as received, have completed about 50 scans, and has plenty of batter life. My only knock would be that the provided USB cable is pretty low quality. The one I received didn't work at all, but the seller took care of me by refunding enough of the purchase price to allow me to buy another one.

    Scanner was provided by the good people at TaoTronics as a 'for review' item. Of course, there was no discussion of a 'good review' in exchange. So, here's my experience with the product. First of all, everything but the needed MicroSD memory card and a dedicated charger are in the box. The charger is not an issue because you can charge it through a USB (Micro) port off any generic charger or even your computer if needed. The card, you actually need to buy one and, since this is not meant to be some industrial scanning operation, even the smallest size would do so we are talking just a few dollars. So, this is what you get: - Scanner wand. It's wide enough to allow for scanning of A4 and Letter size documents (8.5"x11") but it's not too heavy. - Scanner carrying bag. A most welcome add-on. It's 'cheap', black nylon but it's good enough to minimize scratches and it looks good enough not to be embarrassing. - USB cable. Can be used for charging and/or connecting to a computer to view stored scans or do some file management. - Calibration paper. Didn't have to use it yet but it's good to know that it's there if and when your scans start looking too dark or washed out. - Microfiber wipe cloth for cleaning the scanning lens when needed. - Manual in English/German/Italian/French/Spanish. The English section is only 10 small pages but it really has everything you need to know, including phone numbers to call and emails to write to if you ever need help or support. Operation is as straightforward as pressing a couple of well labeled buttons and then sliding the wand over the page you are scanning. It's almost as simple as that. In practice, maybe 10 minutes of training should make one a scanning expert. I know it made me. Resolution goes as high as 1050 dpi but it can be as low as 300 dpi. The way this works is: the lower the resolution, the faster you can scan. For example, you can do 2-second scans at 300 dpi but it's recommended that you slower when you do a higher resolution with some 12 seconds per page at the highest setting. You have a choice of 3 formats: JPG, A4 PDF and Letter PDF and you can select between color or black & white. Resolution, file format and color/no color dictate the size of the output files. There is a preview mode on the wand that lets you see a small version of what you just scanned and you can even go back to see previous pages. It's nothing to blow your mind but it's something good to have. If and when you want to see what your scanner really produced, you either connect the wand to your computer or you take the MicroSD card out and preview it using whatever tools and interfaces you may prefer. And, this is just about it. The scan quality... it depends of course, of the resolution and your ever improving skill. It's easy to learn and I got better quickly. As for why would anyone ever need such a tool. Well... one of our kids is in college now and he is very happy because he can quickly copy someone's class notes or share his without having to place himself in line at the copier machine. Not to mention the benefit of getting it all in a digital format.

    This is an amazing device. Wells made. Easy to use. For years I tried t figure out how to scan wide format documents, such as newspapers, which are too large for desktop scanners. This does the trick. You place the newspaper out flat. Make 3 to 4 separate passes from top to bottom, making sure that you overlap the images. Each pass will create its own PDF file. Then you use a program like Photoshop to stitch the images together into a photomerge PDF. You can do one page at a time (it takes about 3-4 scans to create one page). But then using Adobe Acrobat Pro, you can combine several pages into a singe PDF document. Done... As a PDF, you can use Adobe to recognize text (although with older newsprint, the text recognition is spotty). The tool is very mobile, great for bringing to a library there they would charge you to make xerox copies. You need a bit of patience because Photoshop has to figure out how all the layers need to fit together, but the product is great, and you haven't spent thousands of dollars on a wide format scanner.

    This is the perfect scanner to carry with you on the go. The color display (1.44") is large and bright. the scanner will scan in color or mono. Great for scanning in old photo's or recipes. I really like the fact it has a built in battery or use the enclosed usb cable......choose jpeg or pdf. the wide is perfect and the size is easy to throw in a backpack or a large purse. also 1050 dpi is plenty enought resolution. Comes with a cleaning cloth, felt bad for carrying, CD installation, and user manual. This is the perfect portable scanner and would not hesitate to recommend to others.

A: It can scan 8 1/2" x however long. If the scanned item is flat, easy to keep straight. If original has ragged corners or bumps, a bit more difficult.

What is the difference between this and model tt-ds001 and which would you recommend. i want to use it mostly for photos so is the resolution good? Customers are chatting about this View conversation
A: I prefer the TT-DS011 because it recharges via a USB cable to my pc, the DS001 needs two batteries. I can't really give an opinion about the scan quality of the DS001 (as I've never used one) but if you go to the TaoTronics website you can open a PDF of the products Manual which might give you the answers you need.

How well does this work for photos, color and b&w? Customers are chatting about this View conversation
A: It works great for color and B&W as long as one dimension is less than 8 inches so it fits in one pass. I always scan on high quality (1050 DPI). MI (600 DPI) or Low (300 DPI) also can be selected.
