NOT QUITE THERE
Epson has entered the portable scanner space with its WorkForce DS -30, a tiny rectangular block that does not occupy much space. The top panel only has an LED light with a scanning button.
However, there is a catch. Like regular scanners, the DS-30 also needs to be connected to a PC or laptop for scanning. We had to first install the software for the system to detect the DS-30. Once done, we inserted a page face down and pressed the scan button. Instantly, a window opened on the PC displaying options such as page size (auto, A4, A5, A6, etc.), resolution (ranging between 75 and 600 dpi), image type and adjustments for brightness and contrast.
You can also initiate scanning by double pressing the scan button on the gadget, which takes less that 30 seconds to scan an A4 sheet. By default, the scanned documents are saved in JPG format. Be it blacks or colours, the scanned results were of good quality.

BAG IT OR JUNK IT? Is not quite the competitor to the Portronics Scanny.
