However, a few reviewers pointed out that it had a few flaws. One reviewer pointed out that the scanner would draw the pages to be scanned in the incorrect order and that would cause the pages to be saved in jumbled order. They were quick to point out a quick fix to problem, they figured out that you have to put the document in face up and everything is scanned in from the last page to the front. Your physical document will come out sorted, and the software will reverse the order of the scanned pages for you so the electronic document is correct. A few other reviewers pointed out that it does not have an auto rotate feature to correct the scan if the document goes in crooked it cannot fix the image by itself. The vast proportion of reviewers had none of these issues.
Although there were a few more negative reviews on Amazon.com than we would normally like to see, there were still more positive reviews than negative and when looking at other websites every review but one was extremely positive. The system received an average of 3 stars rating from Amazon.com with 175 reviews.
