Great Process Server Tool!!

Today I purchased a Vupoint Magic Wand Portable Photo and Document Scanner for $99 at Wal-Mart. I have to admit, it's awsome! This tool is something that will come in handy time and time again!

When I am serving court documents, I always try to get a copy of the Driver's License, or other I.D., of the person I am serving. This ensures that I will have "ultimate proof" that a person was served in the event that the service is contested (which rarely ever happens). I used to snap a photo of the person's I.D. with my cell phone camera and it would come out crappy. Not anymore! This cool device enables me to easily take a very clear copy of the person's identification.

Also, as a paralegal and notary public, I am constantly dealing with records and other important documents. Many times I would like to retain copies of some of the completed documents; however, since I provide mobile (traveling) services and am usually sitting at the client's home or office, there is no copy machine available. Now with this portable scanner, I can quickly and easily make a copy of the completed documents for my files.

I have played with this device several times now and it works great! It runs off of two AA batteries. The "wand" is cordless. The scanned images are stored on a Micro SD card that you must purchase yourself. When ready to put the documents or pictures on your computer, you simply plug in the USB cord and connect it to the computer. THAT'S IT!
