Pros I can scan documents from anywhere!
Cons More memory perhaps, but that's about it.
Summary What an amazing gadget, I work in the legal profession and I frequently need to go to the hospital to retrieve medical records, and the Docupen has certainly made my life easier. The pen worked fine from the get go, but because I didn't read the instructions properly, it was my error, but both the tech support and chat line support were indeed most helpful.
Pros Light weight, portable, scans 100 pages, great for out of the office scanning.
Cons Would be great is color feature is available.
Summary I am in the real estate industry and I use the DocuPen to scan lots of my documents on the go, property taxes, and various other forms of documentations.
I never have to run back and forth to find a photocopier anymore, and the cost for photocopier is an arm and leg in my area.
Pros Makes my work life so much easier
Cons Needs more memory perhaps, but current memory is ample
Summary The DocuPen has helped me perform lots of on-site scanning needs, I am a lawyer that deals with numerous documents and the DocuPen has helped me scanned the items on the spot and then bring it back home or to the office. Tech Support was great as well, as they ran me through some initial setup troubles, but it was my fault that I actually didn't read the steps properly.
I own the previous model as well, and that too has worked wonders for me, I like the R700 model for its rechargeable battery feature which is Lithium-ion battery as it recharges through the USB cable supplied.
I am also very proud to say that I own a piece of Guinness World Record history, as I know this DocuPen was in the record for smallest scanner I believe.
I look forward to future versions of the Docupen
Pros Nothing to say about the Pros.
Cons Could not get product to work even with tech support.
Summary DocuPen driver didn't work on 2 different PCs machine using Windows XP and therefore DocuPen could not function. Despite technical support's attempt to help the product would not work.
Tech support was not easy to obtain by phone because of the hours of operation. When calls were placed during office hours the calls were forwarded to voice mail without prompt call back. E-mail was equally slow taking approximately 72 hours for response.
I am returning the device as soon as I can.
Pros This little thing is great for scanning on the go. To address some of the issues mentioned by users of the previous model (the non-rechargeable one), one only needs to run the calibration on the device to sort out a lot of the issues with crappy scans.
Cons You definitely need to calibrate this thing before using it. If you don't, you will only get about %20 of your scans coming out legible. With calibration and a little practice, that number jumps to near %100. Another con is the slowness of transer bet
