Love portable gadgets
from Toronto Ontario
Glad I purchased this when it was a SS, love it and its very easy to use. I did have a hard time opening it to get my batteries in and out but I found that a good thing, if u carry it around in a bag u know u wont loose ur batteries easily. I scanned quite a few things with this like warranties, pix and important receipts. This is great for scanning hard to scan items like books. Very easy to use and easy to carry in a laptop bag. This is as good as my big bulky scanner that is just sitting on a table (which cannot be moved around as easily) I also love the fact that u can just remove the micro chip and put it in a computer or just plug it in right away. I found it hard to see how clear the scan was in the little window When u scan u got to make sure that u do it in one good sweep, if u move ur pix or paper, or ur scanner doesnt go straight it will over lap. Once I looked on my laptop how it looked I found that u need to do some cropping with the images, but that was an easy task to do. I used this on a dresser and it slid around and had to redo my scan a couple of times till I figured out I need a non skid surface for this :o but once i got the hang of it, its AWESOME ITEM!!!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I was really looking forward to scanning all of my old pictures into my computer once I received my MiWand scanner. How disappointed I was when I couldn't even get the battery cover off to insert the batteries. Poor quality control on this product.

I was unhappy that I might have to return this scanner as it took two of us over half an hour to pry open the battery cover. What at shame because I really enjoy the product and find the pictures to scan clearly and I can ajust what I want on my computer. It is too bad that the cover has to remain placed loosely on the top for use. If it was reinserted, I'm not certain we could pry it off again without damage to the scanner.

I bought this for my husband as he does a lot of scanning and he loves it . He has been literally scanning everything and said it is very easy to use
Easy to use. Good results
This product is very easy to use and the pictures are clear. We bought it to use on items we cannot place on the scanner, pictures in old photo books or pages in books. We were very pleased with the results. We also tried it on single pictures and it worked well but you have to crop each picture.
Just a so so scanner
from NEPEAN, ON
I should have read the reviews before purchasing this item. Like everyone else getting into the battery compartment is extremely difficult when you have arthritis in your hands. The battery life is not very long so I will probably return it. What I did scan wasn't too bad but I'm sure there are other scanners out on the market that perform better.
I was really excited thinking of all of the pictures I would be able to scan into my computer. What a disappointment when I tried to use this product. I could not get the cover off to insert the batteries. I looked up the reviews on this scanner and found others had the same problem.
just bought one
from oshawa ontario
i hope i can work it i hear so much wrong with this and i just bought it i havent got it yet so i have my fingers cross that i can use it cause i hate sending things back i will let you know how it works when i receive it thank-you all
from richmond bc
i wish i had known this was on sale previous with online reviews, i never would have bought it. Sure enough i am the one who cannot even get the battery compartment open to put in the batteries, and i have no one to assist me, so had to send it back. If i had known about this possible difficulty, i never would have bought it, what a waste of time and money - i never even got to try it out.

First of all, I am so disappointed that I wrote one review after another, and both reviews on this product were erased. Anyway here is my review once again, regardless of the quality. I have to say that the resolution is good though.This product is a nice piece of equipement for people who do scrapbooking, want it for fun, or who do not care about the precision of the scan. This product do not give you the same quality than a regular scanner does, since it deforms the image with any tiny little movement of the scanner while scanning. So for professional scanning for documents which have a lot of text this does not work. This might be good for students or people who do not want to photocopy something at the library or elsewhere and prefer to scan it.I returned it after reading the full manual, which I had to download online from the manufacturer's website, since it did not come with the product. My item never displayed any image on the screen, it seemed to be defective.
