Hello Skooter Blog readers. Today I talk about a Handheld Scanner A4 Wireless LCD 1.5 ", USB, and Card Slot Micro SDHC / TF, 2 pilhas AA (1.5″ LCD Cordless Handheld A4 Scanner with USB + TF Card Slot (2*AA)) acquired on DX – DealExtreme, whose purchase has been reported here in Skooter Blog.
I still remember my first scanner was a scanner hand, there in the mid- 90. He had wire and needed a card in the PC. I do not even remember most was an ISA card or PCI, just know that the board was required, finally there was still no USB, and for some reason think the serial or parallel ports were not fast enough (I think not all were EPP / ECP). O tal scanner was small, to scan an A4 sheet had to do it twice and depend on the software to join the two parts, which almost always resulted in a poorly patched image. A lot of patience and skill it takes to be able to scan something, it had to slide the scanner very slowly, or he just whistled you were going too fast and the image skirt with failures. With 100dpi was difficult, with 300 or 400dpi (recommended for a good OCR) it was almost impossible. Above that the scanner but was only allowed marketing, it was humanly impossible to move it as slowly as needed.
That One scanner hand cost me about £ 300,00 at that time, where there were already scanners Table, but they cost over £ 1000,00 and they were not viable for me. Only a few years later I was able to get my first scanner Table of Genius, which used parallel interface and was easier to use than the old scanner hand. Years passed, I had some other scanners, after multifunctional, to arrive at the HP Officejet Pro multifunctional 8500 Wireless I have today, which has a good scanner, with automatic feeder.
To imagine that scanners hand were extinct, until one day my girlfriend said I needed a. Strangely, the need for such a primitive equipment today. That was when she explained to me how this was scanr hand and realized that they had already evolved enough, today and meet a very specific niche, the bulky scanners connected PCs to the table can not meet. These are people who need to scan documents that can not be taken as far as is scanner Table. It is the case of legal proceedings that can not leave the forum, for example. Then enter the new scanners hand, like Handheld Scanner A4 Wireless LCD 1.5 ", USB, and Card Slot Micro SDHC / TF, 2 pilhas AA, which are portable, enable rapid passed on the document and record the image in JPG format on a memory card micro SD / SDHC. Not need computers or taken around. The result is much better than taking a picture, which is usually the alternative that some people use, or take out a xerox, possibly would have to be scanned later. Of course, none of this would be necessary if the whole process was digitized and made available on the Internet, but I think we are still far from it, at least in Brazil.
Given this huge introduction, the Handheld Scanner A4 Wireless LCD 1.5 ", USB, and Card Slot Micro SDHC / TF, 2 pilhas AA It was purchased for my girlfriend, who is a lawyer and sometimes need to quickly scan pages of lawsuits that are available but can not be removed from the forum. This scanner is the brand SkyPix, modelo TSN410. I've seen several models similar enough, inclusive na DX. I think in the end they are all the same product. O LCD de 1.5″ shows a counter, battery status, black-and-white mode (actually grayscale) or colored, and Resolution (300dpi or 600 dpi).
The interface is simple enough. It has only the power button / scan, another to select color or black-and-white, and another to select low or high resolution, namely, 300 or 600 dpi, respectively. Simply position the scanner at the top of the document and slide it to the end, with the help of 4 rubber rollers at the bottom. The result depends directly on the user's ability, but even in color and 600 dpi is possible to slide it quickly.
On the side there is the entrance to insert the microSD / SDHC card up to 32GB (possibly, when there are larger capacity cards). The card not included, so acquired together with scanner at Micro SDHC Memory Card / Sandisk 16GB TF Genuino (Genuine SanDisk Micro SDHC / TF Memory Card (16GB)). To download images simply you insert the card into a card reader or connect your own scanner on a PC through a USB port. It is recognized as a storage device. The required drivers already come with Windows.
The Handheld Scanner A4 Wireless LCD 1.5 ", USB, and Card Slot Micro SDHC / TF, 2 pilhas AA It is powered by two AA batteries. They should come included, but it was not the case. According to the announcement of DX should come 4 pilhas AA, Alkaline Energizer I see in the pictures. But they did not come. I had already acquired, with the scanner, at Bundled with 4 Baterias AA Recarregáveis NiMH 2100mAh Sony CycleEnergy Genuínas (Genuine Sony CycleEnergy 2100mAh Ni-MH Rechargeable AA Batteries (4-Pack)). Thus ended up not remembering that should have been included batteries and so did not complain. I think now is a little late to open a complaining ticket, so I'll pass.
In packaging Handheld Scanner A4 Wireless LCD 1.5 ", USB, and Card Slot Micro SDHC / TF, 2 pilhas AA came the operating instructions in English, USB out, Cleaning Cloth, bag for storage / protection, and a CD with the ABBYY Screenshot Reader. I confess I did not even look the CD contents before delivering the Scanner to my girlfriend, I thought it would be some softwarezinho half OCR mouth. But now, seeing the site of the same, I realized what appears to be a very interesting software, that lets you copy of the scanned images and paste into other software, including images, Docs & Spreadsheets, in other words, it not only makes OCR and can also handle formatting and identify data in spreadsheets and allows pasting them in Excel in their respective cells, for example. I need to look at it sometime. Anyway, the software is not necessary, because you can use the images are in JPG format and can be handled by any other software that supports the famous format.
