Rated 4 out of 5 by from Wish it would include the AC adapter cable in the package It is practical if you don’t have a big scanner available, but it is slower in scanning than I expected.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great lightweight solution for scanning This scanner is narrow, lightweight and easy to use. It takes a few minutes to install. The DS-40 only scans one side at a time but the speed is quick and the results are good. Be sure to go in and change the resolution to your liking.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from DS-40 NO CONNECTION FOUND NO POWER SUPPLY - only batteries - UGH!! Received as a gift over a year ago as a back-up scanner - 1) I need it now and attempted to connect using disk provided - Windows 10 would not connect 2) Downloaded software following directions - Windows keeps flagging NO CONNECTION FOUND? Following HELP did not resolve issue -

Rated 2 out of 5 by from This is an OK product I bought this mostly for quickly scanning receipts. The user interface the comes with the product is harder to use relative to others on the market. It needs a lot of refining. Also, for no apparent reason the device stopped communicating with the computer over USB. I have never been able to get it to connect wirelessly. This was true for different computers. After 2 calls for technical advice it finally started working again for USB only. I hope this doesn’t become a reoccurring event. It scans well when it works.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Travel Companion My business requires lots of traveling and paperwork. Uggh This little workhorse eliminates paper handling and initiates paper filing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I Adore this scanner I bought one of these scanners to scan receipts for my ebay reselling purchases. When my ebay slowed down. I ended up using this scanner for work and anything and everything in between. I love how it scans and I can send almost instantly by email. It's awesome and I will always recommend this to anyone needing a portable scanner.
