Here is part of an article I had written on Hub Pages several months ago. Follow the link to read the full article and to see other articles on scanners.
I found the Magic Wand by accident. I first noticed the Vupoint Scanner during a trip to the electronics store. I saw the scanner on the shelf and had no idea what it was at the time. As I investigated I realized this was a hand held document scanner. I didn't even know something like this existed. It was a complete surprise when I looked over the specifics and realized this gadget was a document scanner. I couldn't believe it could run without being attached to the computer or that something that small could scan full page documents. Initially I was skeptical because the prices seem extremely low. It was on the shelf for $89. I thought if this scanner does what it says it will then $89 was a bargain.
I assumed that the Magic Wand would be difficult to use and that it would produce marginal quality scans. But I was pleasantly surprised by the outstanding results. This is truly a portable scanner that you can take anywhere. It runs independently when not attached to a computer and it is simple to use and very effective.

Mobile Scanning to increase productivity
Here is an article that discusses how the new wave of portable scanners can help get your paper work in order. These are all scanners that can be considered portable or mobile. They all can be used in multiple ways and all can be tremendously useful to anyone trying to get a grip on the massive amounts of paper work consuming so much of their time. I think each hasa niche where it can be applied the best, but all four seem to be getting a majority of reviews in the good to great range.
You can take what is in this article and get some ideas on how the Flip Pal matches up with NeatReceipts and the Vupoint Magic Wand Scanner.
Organizing is not always easy but some people are very good at it and some people are the opposite. But there are no hard and fast rules to being organized. Everyone has to find what works for them and create their own system. If you are more visual you may have to put together a system to keep your most important items organized and visible. You will likely run into space issues if you have to keep all of your files on your desk so this is were NeatReceipts or the Vupoint Magic Wand Digital Scanner can help you.
The Neatworks software that scans, reads and categorizes your paper for future search by keyword makes inputting your paper work fairly simply by one sheet at a time. It will allow you to keep your records in an easily accessible place that will be right in front of you on your computer screen. The NeatDesk also uses Neatworks software and it had an automated document feed that accepts up to 50 pages at a time. If you have a lot of paperwork this would be optimal for you.
The Vupoint Magic Wand Scanner also can help you. I like to use it with PaperPort organizational software. It will let your organize all of your paper work and receipts in different folders and sub folders. It will help you organize everything on your computer. If you are having trouble organizing your paperwork and receipts take a look at NeatReceipts, NeatWorks and The Vupoint Magic Wand Scanner. The latest contender that is not even for sale as of yet is the Capture ID by Couragent. Couragent is formerly Rocky Mountain Ventures Company and they have created this more business friendly version of the Flip Pal that is a bit larger and has its awesome scan in binding technology that eliminates the wave on your scan that usually comes with photo copying or scanning books that have bindings.

If you are more interested in scanning photos or scanning oversize objects then you need to look more closely at the Flip-Pal™ mobile scanner. It is a fantastic work of modern innovation and has taken mobile scanning to the next level.
