Handheld Scanners

Electronics are replacing mechanical items all over the place, and many of us now need files in digital form or we can't use them properly. When you have hard copy and need to digitize it, you need scanners. (Like when need to save money, you need Overstock.com.) Scanners are like copiers except that they output a data file instead of a piece of paper.
Scanners come in a variety of models, suited to the needs of a variety of users. If you travel a lot handheld scanners can bring the convenience of the home or office computer to the road. This digital scanner is battery powered and recharges via USB, so there are no cables to hassle with. Additionally, flatbed scanners are the general purpose scanners, good for documents and photos, large or small. Document scanners may be designed specifically to read text documents. For those of us with loads of slides or transparencies, film scanners are specialized units designed for non-paper items. Are you a member of Club O? Well, then you should buy one of each scanner--you'll save a boatload on shipping!
Many a handheld scanner looks like a large pen and is as light as a few ounces. Some are large enough (over eight inches wide) to scan a full page of text in one sweep. This type of computer scanner is great for work in libraries or archives (with the librarian's permission--light can be very damaging to old documents) or when on the go. Handhelds are very basic digital scanner models, small enough to take almost anywhere and a perfect match for your laptop or PDA. They are as handy as they are affordable (at Overstock.com, that is) .

    was excited to receive scanner but the instructions are terrible. after figuring it out still couldn't get it to scan satisfactorily. most times the scan would skid causing the picture to skew. after doing it many many times could not get a consistent picture.

    Got it up and working in a short period of time. I had to hunt online to find the correct bar code to print out and scan in order to change one of the defaults, and it would have been easier to have that provided in the documentation that was packed with the unit. But in all other respects, I'm pleased with the unit, which works as advertised. Because it will be used regularly "in the field," I added in Overstock's three-year warranty, to maximize its working life, at a good price. A great purchase at a good price.
