    Mar 30, 2007 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Intuitive, easy to install, easy to use, easy to get organized/stay organized.
    Cons: Blank stare

    Summary: I want to be upfront and tell you that I have issues. I have a TON of paper - receipts, bills, insurance claims (think about all of my medical stuff!!!). It just piles up. I'm always thinking that at the beginning of every year, I'm going to ... read more

    Pros: Size: Brilliant
    Only one wire: Usb
    OCR is accurate but makes the machine very S-L-O-W
    Cons: You grow old as the software prcess the scan.
    The software is not all that intuitive.

    Summary: For this review, I am simply cutting and pasting the letter I wrote to Neatco after I ried this scanner for a few days:After a search on the internet for a quick review of the Neat Receipts ADF scanner, I bought one at Costco on Sunday, hoping ... read more

    Pros: Scanner is tiny, I carry it in my bag and use it wherever, whenever.
    Cons: May become addicted and scan in every piece of paper you own!!

    Summary: I bought neat receipts for my Mac last year on their version 1 platform. They have continually improved the software, which was already quite good when I bought it. They just released NeatWorks 2.0 for the Mac and I downloaded it, again they have added ... read more

  • HORRIBLE waste of time and money

    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: good idea
    Cons: VERY SLOW, glitchy, poor OCR, poor export, costly updates, fail to fix bugs, poor upgrades

    Summary: I've been told for months that NeatReceipts update ($20 cost to existing customers for version 3.0) would have better exporting to Quicken. Specifically I'm disappointed that MEMO data (you know - that line that has been on checks for 100 years now) does ... read more

  • Neat Receipts SCANALIZER

    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: I like having the ability to split receipt expenses among several categories.
    Cons: I would like to have more flexibilty with the build-in reports.

    Summary: I first saw the Neat Receipts Scanalizer hardware and software product at the Seattle airport being demonstrated by a sales rep. It looked real easy to use. I saw a variety of receipts and full-size pages being scanned in and filed automatically into ... read more

  • Great Idea, doesn't really work for me.

    Pros: Good Sorting & Extraction
    Cons: Very slow boot-up and execution

    Summary: As a hopeless receipt piler, I am always screwed at tax time, and berated and charged heavily by my attorney. I have tried programs like PaperPort and OmniPage in the past, but they never did a good job of pulling information off the documents- and they ... read more

    Pros: Great for organizing receipts ... love the ability to split a receipt into multiple categories.
    Cons: Calibration paper does not work and almost caused us to return the unit.

    Summary: Background Info: My husband and I saw this product at Costco and decided to research it before we spent the $150 on it. We thought it sounded great, but would it really work? We visited their website and it looked like it would be the savior of our ... read more

    Pros: It's small and the software works with outlook.
    Cons: The support for Vista is silly.

    Summary: I first purchased the Neat Receipt Scanner when I first started my business and also was keeping track of medical receipts for my mother for whom I’d taken over financial responsibilities. I found that I could scan receipts and that the software ... read more

    Pros: Nice idea and concept.
    Cons: Two units wound up being defective. Store informs of high return rates.

    Summary: Well, I certainly wish I could write a nice review for the Neat Receipts scanner, but I can't. WHAT IT IS: At barely around 12 inches long and only a few inches wide, the Neat Receipts scanner seems wonderful for those who wish to have a ... read more

    Pros: None, for me, I can't even install it
    Cons: Zero real support, only canned troubleshooting and suggestions that don't even closely fit the problem.

    Summary: No phone support. No chat support.  Only e-mail to start then their customer support web page.  They only send canned answers, that didn't even closely apply in my case.  Then, they don't respond to updates to the ticket...  ... read more

    Pros: It's lightweight and neat looking and doesn't require a separate power supply
    Cons: Doesn't live up to its promise

    Summary: The product looks well made, but the software is very lacking. It can't scan a whole sheet to copy and keep it straight, there is no real image adjustment for scanned documents, although there is some for receipts. It is slower than a Prius in the fast ... read more
