Evaluation

This device has the combination of great function and simple, elegant design. The user interface is one touch, it can’t get simpler than that! The form factor and the way the device internally functions are designed to minimise the shelf or desk space this device requires. In thinking carefully about the users’ needs and real-world scenarios the designers have developed a smart and useful scanner. It has some other neat features like an automatic extension of the document placement area and a user interface to allow easy data handling. This is a good, holistically designed product.
