“Very handy light and compact scanner to bring along on trips!”
The neat portable scanner is another tool has recently been made part of my road warrior arsenal. Having a scanner on hand is great when you need to send information back to people quickly, scan in something, and send it off. It can accommodate up to a 8.5″ wide paper and 14″ in length.
The rollers inside allow you to easily scan smaller items as well such as business cards and receipts. Neat has created a software suite to help you categorize your receipts and create expense reports while on trips.
This 600 dpi mobile scanner can scan up to 3-4 receipts per minute, seems to have the same scanning rate for larger papers, and weighs under 11 oz. It is only 11″ wide and roughly 1.5″ x 1″ in size. Very compact.
It does not require external power and feeds off the single USB cable. It comes with a soft case but I really like the optional harder shell case you can get for it.
I have been very impressed with this scanner and use it to help reduce the amount of paper I need to carry around. If you are able to name your files appropriately and sort them, it makes retrieving a multitude of documents while you are on the road very easy.
