Pros
On using this product, none come to mind.
Cons
1. The output is washed out and has an un-editable blue tint.
2. It is misleadingly called "iConvert" which hints to Mac compatibility.
3. It is not compatible with Macintosh Computers
4. Does not work on all Windows XP Machines.
5. The software is very amateurish and does not fit the descriptions in the manual
6. A total waste of time and money.

Star rating 
0 out of 5, and that is being generous.

How long have you used the product?
I have had it for close to a year but only used it for one month.

Build quality and value for your money.
The build is ok but the functionality is far below your moneys worth.

Other comments
If you are considering getting a scanner for personal or professional use, then stay away from the Brookstone iConvert. It maybe worthwhile giving it as a gift to someone you totally dislike because it will give him or her endless headaches.
