I am torn when it comes to the Doxie Scanner. When it does what you want it produces picture perfect scans. When it won’t do what you want it is a frustration and you feel like your threw your money away.
First, the pluses: The price is simply amazing for a scanner that goes up to 600dpi. It gets it’s juice from the USB connection so there is only one cable and no wall warts. This also makes it incredibly portable (and it comes with a little leatherette pouch that holds the scanner and cable together). The software doesn’t bog down your system with extra stuff all the time, it starts up quickly when you hit the button on the scanner. It’s cute little Doxie character walks you through the process, and more importantly, when you know what to do you can make the character go away.
The negatives: Really there is only one. The Roxie is designed for paper and photos. Anything else (such as magazine pages, receipt paper, or anything else thin) is going to twist as it gets pulled through and your scan will not be straight. The solution I found for this (and it’s not an elegant one since it produces it’s own problems) is to take a sheet protector, cut it to fit through the scanner and put a piece of paper in. Then put what you want scanned in there and run it through. It creates a larger picture and any scratch on the sheet protector reflects light back so after a few scans you have lines on your magazine pages.
If you want to make your office more paperless you really can’t do better than the Doxie. It integrates perfectly with Dropbox and Evernote (this was the main selling point with me) as well as Google Docs, Flickr and many other cloud based services. Just know of it limitations.
