Review: Doxie Q Wireless Scanner and Software

Recommended by The Minimalist guys as their preferred de-cluttering device for paper and photos, I purchased this scanner to see if it would meet my needs and thought I’d bring you along for the initial experience. As you’ll see, it doesn’t all go exactly as expected. 😛

This is a fairly thorough first-impressions review of both the Doxie Q Portable Scanner and the software that comes with it.

I start from scratch with a basic ‘unboxing’ and first-impressions, and then do some test scans of various sized documents and photos.

Finally, I explore the functionality of the included Doxie Software and give some final thoughts about the product and it’s suitability for various purposes.

I’ve reached out to Doxie about the poor performance of the document feeder. They claim that this is definitely not ‘normal’ behavior and have offered to send me a replacement. I’ll report back ASAP whether or not the replacement performs better than my original unit.

ReeWray Travels says:

Follow-up: I have to say that the Doxie support team has been extremely responsive. They have responded consistently within 12 hours or less to my emails, without fail. I got my replacement scanner today and began scanning. I was initially extremely satisfied to see that the new scanner’s automatic document feeder seemed to be working MUCH more consistently than the original unit I got. However, after about 30 or 40 pages, I started having to babysit the thing more and more. I’d say that after about 50 documents, it’s now pretty much on-par with the original unit, where I have to coax the first and last pages in particular to get through the feeder. So, I’ll leave my comments/recommendations as they stand in the video.
