Rated 1 out of 5 by from Minimal I bought this scanner 01/18 to replace a lovely portable cabled (corded) scanner. I don't mind a wifi scanner, but this one permits only ONE wifi network. So you can't go from your main place (let's say home) to cottage or hotel or airport and have it work -- this isn't like an iPhone that sets up and then detects networks. Moreover, the AP mode simply doesn't work. I thought I'd set it up to use at cottage, hotel, airport. Nope; a talented IT person and I tried for an hour. No luck. Lastly, the included cable is just for power, not for scanning. This is clear enough if you read details in manual, but it's a disappointment, and should be made crystal clear. In sum, what a lousy purchase. What limited capabilities (for location) compared to my prior cabled scanner.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Device We love our scanners, they make for convenient scans of patient information. Only downside to this model it turns off after a short period of time and it only scans face down(rest of ours are face up).
