My boyfriend just bought the MiWand 2 from Simlim Square at S$130 after bargaining with the shop owner. So I am going to do a review on this handy gadget today, based on his input of course.
MiWand 2 is a mobile scanner that allows you to scan without a computer or software. Simply gliding the scanner over the surface of a page and the scan is done. It is produced by Avision which is a Taiwanese company and it has received the 2012 Red Dot Award.
Included in the package are 4GB Micro SD, 2 AA RECHARGEABLE Batteries and CHARGER, and a software (Presto PageManager) which apparently we have not used before. Just the 2 rechargeable batteries and charger
are worth the price, because they might already cost S$20-30.
The scans will be stored in the Micro SD and you will be able to transfer them out via the port at the side.
First look at the MiWand 2, my boyfriend was very skeptical of its capabilities. The gadget itself is very light and only powered by 2 AA batteries. How can this small gadget compare to a flatbed scanner?
We had tested out the MiWand 2 and were amazed by its quality.
Scans by MiWand 2:
appeared to be stretched or skewed.
In conclusion, we will recommend this gadget for people who need to scan documents on the go, without the need to carry bulky flatbed scanner!
