I own a flatbed scanner and I'm always thankful I've got one when I need to use it. But if I had to add up the times I actually need the scanner's services, I could probably count the number of times on two hands for an annual total. That means the rest of the time, even the fairly slim form factor scanner we own takes up a lot of room. That's why something like the Doxie Go + Wi-Fi scanner seems appealing: wireless syncing, with no computer required, with the option to upload directly to cloud apps like Evernote, Flickr, or Dropbox using an Eye-Fi X2 wireless SD card. The Doxis is also 1/5th the size of a regular flatbed unit, making it well suited for both home office and on-the-go use.
