      This is an excellent portable device especially for those who need to scan away from home or the office. I find that the ST-420's automatic feedthough is more convenient versus "wand" type scanners which are manually passed over photos and documents sometimes resulting in distorted scans.

      The so called "low" resolution setting is 300dpi which is actually more than would normally be needed for crystal clear copies of documents. At this setting, documents literally zoom through the scanner in a matter of a few seconds. Speaking of documents, the specs seem to indicate that "letter" or "A4" docs are the largest that can be scanned however I've found that 8.5" x 14" (legal size) are no problem whatsoever! For photos and/or smaller items the 600 or 900dpi (medium and high) settings are perfect. Image quality is quite good, but if photos are your main concern you'll probably appreciate the advantages and control of a flatbed scanner versus a portable.

      The mini status screen is a real plus. Here you can control and confirm your setting for dpi resolution, output type, and the like. I love that it uses standard AA batteries rather than USB or rechargable batteries. Although a set of batteries is included be aware that this scanner DOES require a microSD card which must be purchased seperately. It can handle cards up to 32GB but for practical purposes an inexpensive 4gb or 8gb card will be more than enough temporary storage for most users.

      The package also contains some decent software such as "Paperport 14" which can be installed on your PC for organizing and managing scanned documents, and also "ABBYY FineReader" OCR program (lite version) for optical text recognition and editing. The included "ScanDirect" software allows you to scan straight to your PC and view the images as they are acquired. You can then save them as jpg or pdf if desired. If you don't install the ScanDirect, just plug the scanner into a USB port on your computer and it appears as a drive (like a DSLR camera) so you can simply copy the scans to your desktop. It also includes a nice drawstring case to protect the scanner while traveling. So it's all good, but be aware that this unit does not have WiFi capability, meaning that you can't upload directly to the cloud.

      I needed a portable scanner that would be able to scan to both PDF and jpeg outputs without using a big machine so i thought this would be ideal. I compared the specs on the box and on the website to ensure it would be compatible with my PC but nowhere in any of that information did it indicate that a micro-SD card would be REQUIRED in order to make the unit functional. I had to find an old dead phone and extract the SD card to see if the unit would even work! The scanner does scan quickly, but it will only scan to a SD Card, and it WILL NOT SCAN while connected to a computer. It also does not permit you to scan multiple pages into a single document. Scanning of business cards or ID cards are blown out into full size pages. It is not at all what I would ever consider usable. Scanning was fast, but then you have to connect it to the PC, download the document from the SD card onto the PC, then knit the multiple pages into one single PDF file. What a ridiculous waste of effort. It may be usable for some, but at least full disclosure of what is required would have been appreciated. I wasted a lot of time in reviewing this ahead of time for pitfalls, and the most critical factors to its operation were carefully hidden, so i wasted several days in this process. It got returned in a hurry! What kind of scanner doesnt work when connected to a PC!

      Comments about Vupoint Solutions VuPoint ST-420 Scanner:

      I was using a very old Cannon scanner and I recently bought the VuPoint Scanner. It fits nicely on my desk and is fast. I have it plugged directly into my laptop and am not using for photos just yet. I do plan to buy a SD card soon, so that I can try that feature out as well. I would recommend this product. It is nice, if you scan multiple pages, it will save it in a single pdf, which makes it awesome to e-mail. I should have bought this product a long time ago. I am definitely happy with it. It was priced reasonable compare to others.

      It just does the job! Makes very clean jpeg and pdf copies without any fuss. It's very compact and can copy without being connected to a computer. I would highly recommend this product for a portable scanner.

      I needed to be able to copy a lot of client information for my school its internship and was always using my preceptor's copy machine. I felt bad that I was using her stuff. Also wanted a way to copy when I was out of the office instead of making an extra trip. This scanner solved my problems. Make great copies every time and now I can only print the ones I want. I like the convenience of having the files on a micro usb so that I can just print them on a printer with that and don't need necessarily need a computer. Very compact and easy to take along.
