Brother DSmobile 620

 

Low cost. Highly portable. Comes with capable document management software with built-in optical character recognition.

Although it comes with business card software, it doesn't handle business cards well.

The Brother DSmobile 620 scanner is suitable for light-duty scanning as a portable or on the desktop, with simplex (one-sided), manual-feed scanning and a low price.

Brother DS-620 Mobile Review

 

Inexpensive and more than adequate for shorter documents, but doesn't handle large scanning jobs well

Inexpensive, fairly simple to operate, a significant improvement over flatbed models

Poor text recognition, not great for long (10+ page) documents

The provides an inexpensive and dependable scanning option for those that scan somewhat infrequently. If your scanning needs include lots of long documents, however, you're going to want to invest in a more capable model.

mobile scanner

 

This is a really great addition for a mobile worker and was quick and easy to set up on my laptop and it really is neat and takes up very little room. the only design flaw is the design of the position for the usb cable it would be so much easier for...
