4 out of 5 eggsPerfect for travel

Pros: Bought this to use while traveling around Afghanistan. Finding adequate equipment to perform your job is a real challenge. You have to take everything you need with you. This is the perfect size for travel to use with a laptop. The usb power means you don't have to have additional power sources. Especially if they are not available. The built in software means you don't have to load the full scanner suite or you can use it on different computers without worrying about the drivers. It is relatively fast. Compared to a flatbed scanner it screams. Thanks Newegg for the fast shipment to APO address, you guys always rock!!

Cons: Come on Cannon!, you couldn't put the AC adapter in the box! It's an option?! I knocked off one egg for the AC adapter. For the price that should have been included. Using two usb ports to power could be and issue for smaller ultra books. It does allow the use of one usb 3.0 port, if you have one, because of the higher power output. To be fair, I did know it was usb powered when I bought it. I bought it for the size and scanning features.

Other Thoughts: If you are always scanning docs while traveling, this is a good investment. It does add a little more weight to the computer kit. The convenience of not having to search for a scanner is a plus.

5 out of 5 eggsI heart P-215

Pros: I love this little scanner. I literally can't believe how often I end up using it. I scan just about everything with it including important receipts, documents, and more. I thought I would use this a few times per month, but once I got used to using it, I now use it almost every day for one thing or another. Now I have decided I want to go paperless, utilizing Dropbox for storage.

The included software is great, and even has embeded software you can run directly off the device that works great, especially when using it on other computers without having to install any drivers or software. It doesn't however work with the 3rd party software I was planning on using (see Cons). But figuring out the settings in the included software, I get exactly what I want out of the scans, stored in PDF's just like I want them. The scan quality is great, and I love how fast it is, especially when scanning both sides of a document at once.

If you have USB3, then all you need is the one cable.

Cons: Before receiving the scanner, I was aware that the 3rd party software Vuescan was not supporting the P-215, but I had hoped to get it to work. Even trying to use the twain drivers, I couldn't get it to work. However, the included software provides 95% of all the tools I wanted out of Vuescan (Actually a PRO).

Other Thoughts: I HIGHLY recommend this scanner. I can store it in my Laptop bag, and pull it out anytime I need it. I have scanned hundreds of pages of documents with it and am very pleased with the PDF output. I was also pleased with the Card scanner portion, that can scan hard plastic cards and thick business cards. I went ahead and copied everything I have in my wallet in case I ever lose it, I know exactly what was lost.

If you are in the market for a portable scanner, this one is great!

5 out of 5 eggsLet's be fair..

Pros: Best bang for the buck you can find in a portable scanner. In fact I just love the fact that its small and compact when not in use sitting on my desk 90% of the time. It's even easy to maintain with parts you can replace yourself.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: To the guy complaining about old OS issues. If you buy something today don't expect it to support OLD OS. It was designed for current. It's lame to bash a product for not being backwards compatible especially when they don't advertise it as being such.

2 out of 5 eggsBeware of OS.

Pros: You don't need to load software to get this scanner to work. The scanner has self contained software for simple duplex scans. It comes with software to do more advanced scans. See Cons!

Cons: I was unable to get this to work on computers using Windows Vista and XP with the extra software. It worked with no problem on Windows 7 and Windows 8. When I called Canon, they too had problems. It has been 4 weeks and they have not figured out what the problem is.

Other Thoughts: If you have windows 7, I think you will have no problem. 4 starts for using this under Windows 7. If you have XP or Vista, get something else.
