I have been considering getting a portable document scanner and figured I would ask for help here, knowing full well that I will be besieged by pitches for units that I have zero interest in buying, accompanied by dissertations about the things that I *really* need to consider when scanning documents.

All I really want is validation.

So, before you unleash your furious typing fingers, here's what I want:

One of those little skinny scanners you run documents through.

They make cordless versions that work off of Wi-Fi and corded versions that do not.

My interest has centered on the Epson and Brother brands, less so on Doxie.

I think that software may be a big part of my decision, and I'm most familiar with Epson.

Versions I have been considering:

Neither of the two Epson machines possess DUPLEX capability.
The inexpensive Brother does.

None of these units have a document feeder - they're manual feed only, and for space saving and infrequency of scanning I think that it's not worth looking at larger units that occupy more valuable space that I'd rather fill with cardboard pirate stuff.

You know, as rarely as I need to scan something like this would be great. Want duplex but not a printer. I'll have to keep this one in mind. Let us know how you like it when you start using it.
