Halo Scanner & Mouse

By Melanie

from Mississauga, ON

I ordered this in the leopard print and love it. There was a bit of a learning curve and playing around with the product but that was to be expected. I normally don't use a mouse with my laptop, so I disconnect it when I am not using the scanner. I went to the Halo website to d/l the Mac software as suggested, and installation was easy. No freeze-ups or any other problems at all. I love the software and the fact that you can save the scan in multiple formats! I was able to scan some documents and e-mail them to a relative who printed out the .pdf's and said they came through quite clear! So, overall, very pleased. I have not used it for photos or other items yet.

Freezing Up

By Grace

from Aurora, Ontario

I am amending my previous 3 rating to a 1. It is constantly freezing on the screen now. Takes a reboot to get it moving. Have replaced it with my wireless mouse, and I'm not sure I'll go to the trouble of plugging in back in to scan an item. Too bad - good concept, not so good on execution.

Love the concept

By Blondetundra

from Southern BC Canada

The software was easy to install and I had no trouble using the scanner. I found too that I can use my original mouse as well as this one and have them both connected to the computer so I don't have to unplug one to use the other. I was not happy with the delay in receiving it. This isn't the first time I've waited and waited for an item only to call TSC and find out it was either back ordered or hadn't been send out yet. This is frustrating to us as customer and not a good business practice for TSC. TSC should at the very least email the customers that have back orders to let us know instead of letting us go to the Post Office every day looking for a package that hasn't even been mailed.

Not the greatest

By Scooter Girl

from Sudbury, ON

It works great on receipts and smaller pictures/documents. I was not happy with larger pictures or documents. You have to be very careful and if you go over the same spot twice it doubles up the image and distorts your image.
I returned it.

Disappointed

By dog lover

from Loretto

I gave this mouse a good shot because I really wanted it to work - it seemed like a great idea. However, I could not get it to function and ended up calling technical support in the US three times. Each time they told me to unplug the mouse and reboot my computer and then download the software again. On the third call, they told me to return the mouse to TSC for an exchange as they felt it was defective. I simply returned it. My mother also ordered one and hers did not work either and was returned. Would definitely not recommend this. It's one of the few items I've ordered from TSC that was a disappointment.

Works Great!

By R

from near London

I'm very pleased I ordered this scanner mouse as I found the software was easily installed and easy to use. The quality of the scanned item looks identical to the original. Thanks Halo and TSC for a great product.

Good idea

By MARGARET

from TORONTO

I cannot give more stars as I bought it as a gift and I did not try how it worked. I read all opinions and if it would not work it would be too late for me to return it.

The idea is super as if scanning is needed at the time of creating any document or letter it could be done immediately with the handy mouse.

I believe that presentation on air was correct and - that with a bit of practice, it would be a fun to have such device , which is a space and time saver.

Finally received

By Sissy

from Surrey

I noticed my first review was not posted. This item took a month to arrive. After 2 phone calls to TSC which I found out this item is not shipped from their warehouse but the vendor. Apparently there was a problem with the tracking number.

It's okay!

By wife of gajit man

from Hamilton Ontario

Honestly, I've only used it twice so far. It took some getting used to. Certainly not as easy as they showed on TV. I think with time it could get easier. I'm not giving up!!!

not so good

By precious

from SAINT JOHN

If I want to take it to another computer I have to download the driver on each computer. Not convenient. I have another portable scanner and it is far easier to use and goes on a sd card that I can put in any computer. I will be returning it.
