  1. I have one and it's wonderful!! So simple to use and excellent scanned images. You just put in the micro SD card, turn it on, press the start button, roll it across what ever you are scanning (there are actual rollers so it glides accross whatever you're working with), press the stop button, and you're done. Hook it up to the computer and see what you just scanned. I was nervous that I scanned it too fast, but you can actually roll it across fairly quick- just go at a constant speed. One of the best purchases ever!

  2. Thanks so much for the information Julie! I love it's portability so I could scan them while sitting on the couch watching tv!! I can't wait to try this product!

  3. Michele, you could by an ALL IN ONE printer, scanner, copier (PSC) from any 'mart' store for about the same amount of money. With the resolution being only 600x600, it might not create such a clear, detailed picture.

    Just sayin'....


Thank you for stopping by ~ Hope you have a crafty day :-)
