Reflecta MemoScan review

Reflecta's CMOS scanner is fast, but is its 3.8MP resolution enough?

Our Verdict


  • Very easy to use
  • Scan times are fast at 5secs for a basic scan
  • Anti-dust and scratch technology is a nice option


  • Software is not Mac-compatible and installation was difficult
  • Its top resolution of 3.8 megapixels is only enough for a 7x5in print
