I'm so glad I bought it
By Granny Puddleduck
I have tried to photo copy pictures in photo albums and it meant distroying the albums so I didn't get the pictures.With this device, with the help of friends, we scanned photos to be used at our friend's funeral.She had seen a photo presentation at a funeral and stated that she would like the same but we didn't get to choose the pictures together.At first, I was afriad to use the scanner (I am not electronically savvy), but it was easy and fast and the other ladies liked it so much they wanted one.We scanned pictures that hung on her walls, and went through numerous albums and the pictures that were curled up, we set a clean piece of glass from a photo frame over top and scanned right over top. To isolate a photo, I put white paper over the pictures I did not want, placed the glass over top and scanned.Another of her friends cleaned up and centered the pictures. We sent all the pictures to her family and they organized them and added more and deleted some.Yes, Yes, Yes, I would buy this item again and it will be a gift from me at Christmas.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Eccellent for Travel
from Thompson (Manitoba)
Bought it on sale with mixed feelings. When I got it, I used it right away. It was very easy to use. I now take it with me on my travels. No more papers to store, receipts to keep and also scanned Family pictures. 4 stars because there is always room for improvement.

Pros & cons
By Blue Star Shopper
Already had a hand scanner from Shopping Channel, the EasyScan ES-01, but I have to plug into my computer to see if the scan was successful (many times not a success, therefor a hassle), hence my attraction for the MiWand2 portable scanner. It does show the scan but only JPEG, not PDF. One had to buy it and read the instructions to find that out! The quality of scanning is good, and it does up to legal size, which my old one doesn't do. However, the MiWand2 is much heavier than the EasyScan, which is disappointing. In spite of it not doing what I wanted (i.e. previewing PDFs) I will keep it but it doesn't replace the EasyScan.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

from SAINT JOHN
I bought one for myself and was so impressed that I bought 4 more for family and friends. Easy to use and I like how you can see the picture on the screen. Good price, good value.

Best ProductI bought for my a laptop
from Montreal, Quebec
I have a tower and laptop which I just bought recently also. I found the wand so beneficial when uploading documents and sending by email. Would seriously recommend this product.

Hand-held scanning is wonderful!
I was looking for a scanner. I have had a clunky printer-scanner combo for over a decade and it took forever to scan a single document. I saw how convenient this scanner was and bought it in purple. It came in handy when I had to provide documents for a company background check, which included scanning my university degrees that were framed on my wall! The quality of every scan is amazing. Uploading the pictures from this scanner is a breeze. I even bought one (the white) for my boyfriend, who travels often and has to scan a countless number of receipts. He loves it, too. It is a great invention.
