Straight out of the box the Pakons color is awesome.
Now the minus, it takes quite a bit of effort to get the hardware and software set up. I spent a full day downloading, researching etc. and was getting nowhere quick. I think part of the issue was me being on a mac. The Facebook group helped with some Videos but the saving grace was a forum member here. He sent me all needed software and with that and a few hours watching the set up videos again i was on my to scanning. RFF comes through again! Thanks
I'll post examples when i get some time. K
What additional software did you need? I'm in the same boat of hitting a wall with the software install: Everything installed but the software can't see the Pakon. The computer itself sees it and recognizes it when plugged in, but not the software. What videos helped you the best? FYI I'm on my old, dusted-off Dell XP laptop from 2006. I'd love any advice on how to get this thing going. Thanks!
