Planon's DocuPen R705+ is a handheld scanner that operates on batteries for full portability purposes. The DocuPen is capable of storing up to 200 pages into memory and takes approximately 4 to 8 seconds per page. The DocuPen is different from other pen scanners in that it scans a FULL PAGE width and therefore scans the entire page including text and graphics in just 4 seconds. Other handheld and pen scanners only scan single lines of text or records handwriting and cannot scan graphics making them much less practical.In comparison, the DocuPen is truly a breakthrough in technological development because it fully realizes the potential of what other pen size scanners tried to accomplish. The need for convenient out of office scanning is enormous but has not been satisfied because the products to date did not fulfill that need adequately. As the fax evolved from the telex, to successfully satisfy its communication need, the DocuPen is the practical solution to the pen scanners finally opening the market for wide spread acceptance.

Comments about Planon DocuPen DPEN-R705:
I got this to use for school and business purposes and was recommended by a friend to get it. It is horrible in my opinion. Even following the instructions it is extremely difficult to use and hard to actually get it to scan 1 page fully and correctly. If I could get a refund I would.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I can't really comment since i wasn't able to make the product work for me. I returned it for a replacement and apparently got the same item back as a replacement... so I returned it and didn't replace it.
