Good hardware, but software isn't great
This review is from: Plustek MobileOffice D412 Color and Duplex mobile Scanner (783064284295)
Pros: Very light, sturdy, and portable. It's powered entirely by the USB slots on your computer. The autofeed makes putting any size of paper in it easily. Wonderfully easy to scan both sides of a document.
Cons: Very difficult to get 600dpi scan size to work. 150 for docs and 300 for pictures is the default.
Other Thoughts: I tried using the windows software included with the device and couldn't get 600dpi to function, which basically ruined the whole purpose of me buying the thing (I'm scanning very detailed photos that I can't transport). I even hooked it up to linux with all its tools and still couldn't coax 600dpi out of it. Were it not for that one issue I would give it a 5.
