Takeaway: Lightweight and portable, get clear digital copies, fast.

The Visioneer RoadWarrior Lite Portable Scanner (model #S8X1100) is a lightweight and high resolution scanner that makes it easy to keep track of receipts and scan individual documents on the go. Lightweight and portable, get clear digital copies, fast... As long as you're fine doing it one page at a time.

This is exactly the kind of scanner I was looking for to travel with. The scanner is powered by USB, so I don't have to hunt for another outlet and it's pretty much plug and play. The one touch scanning is a great feature since once the unit is on I can insert a new page without having to click or press any buttons between sheets. The black and white settings and OCR text recognition work great on receipts and documents and the quality of the color scans isn't bad either. The only thing you wouldn't be able to scan versus a flatbed would be book pages or thicker media. You should be able to get business cards and heavy card stock through it though. By default, the scanner saves each page as its own file, but you can change the setting to aggregate multiple pages into one file without having to take a break in between pages. The software that came with it is also impressive. It will automatically "clean up" your images, straighten AND crop them! My all-in-one printer/scanner combo doesn't even do that. Just be sure to remove any paper clips or staples before feeding your pages through. You should probably stick with only putting single sheets through this one. The footprint is so small that I keep this on my desk at home even when I'm not traveling. It beats having to stand by the printer just to scan a few items.
