Pen Power Super Scan Eye


Recommended Posts

I paid HKD1480 and bought it from Cyber System Computer, 2/F Wanchai Computer Center, Exit A4 from Wanchai MTR. The shop is next to the stairs, they have a display of Penpower products. You'll need to ask for the Wireless Pen Scanner as it's not on display.

The scanner won't magically imbue you with Chinese grammar nor will it shortcut the necessary grunt work of learning hundreds of characters.

I think it's useful for reading printed matter, newspapers and magazines where you understand the gist of things but run into characters/words you haven't come across.

The character recognition is fairly accurate, though it's fairly tedious scanning more than a sentence or two. For that you'd be better off with a flatbed scanner.

The onboard dictionary isn't fantastic,but you can transfer to the PC or PDA for dictionary lookups or text-to-speech.

Overall, it works for me, your exact mileage may vary depending on what you are hoping to achieve.
