Description
Save the memories. Preserving and sharing special photos, important documents, and more is easy with the HALO photo and document scanner mouse--now available in all new colors and prints! This clever mouse functions just like a regular computer mouse, but it also works as a convenient scanner that you can use right at your computer. And, it's the same size as a normal computer mouse, so it will fit perfectly on your desk or in your laptop bag when you're on the go.

What makes the HALO photo and document scanner mouse special? This easy-to-use, all-in-one mouse scanner lets you scan any document, drawing, book, magazine, photo--and larger items that won't fit on a standard flatbed scanner--without needing to set up a cumbersome, separate unit. Once you've scanned your item, it instantly assembles the images onto your computer screen for easy editing, saving, printing, or sharing via social media or email--whatever you need. Plus, a 10" x 12" mouse pad is included for added ease of use--and a great value!

What does the OCR technology do? Optical Character Recognition lets you transform text into an editable document--so whether you're scanning a recipe, an Excel sheet, or a Word document, OCR technology captures those words and turns them into text that you can edit instantly! It also recognizes multiple fonts and languages. From assisting with daily business tasks to helping the kids with their homework, this handy technology will prove itself an awesome tool the whole family will appreciate.

What about when I don't need to scan something? When you're not scanning, the mouse functions as a typical mouse you'll use daily for everyday computing. To scan, all you have to do is hit the scan button on the side of the mouse.

What's in the box? HALO scanner mouse, 10" x 12" mouse pad, setup disc, and instruction manual.

Rated 1 out of 5 by This was a total waste $ Purchased this item last year and did not install it immediately. I never got it to work. AT ALL. Terrible product and should be pulled from your site. I am computer savvy and even had my IT guy take a look. It just does not perform. I would ha be rated it 0 stars had I been allowed to do so. 11-22-15
Rated 1 out of 5 by Can't get it to work??? I've downloaded it all hooked up but the scanner will not work. when i click the scan button it seems like it going to work but the scan memory is GREEN and will not scan....BAD purchase....no where in the instructions does it talk about the scan memory!! I would return it but I waited to long to install over my 30 days...ugh 10-02-15
Rated 3 out of 5 by hmm wut well its not as easy as it looked on tv... thats for sure now my pc wont go back to my org mouse of left click now its premanent right click .... and scanning is not so easy for someone who has hard time with hand movements ... as for me i am sneding it back but it came really fast good luck.. 07-20-15
Rated 2 out of 5 by Cordless Would not be a bad scanner if it wasn't for the cord . Scanning items the cord kept getting in the way 07-07-15
Rated 1 out of 5 by GOOD IDEA - BAD EXECUTION HAD TO RETURN IT. SCANNING IS NOT AS EASY AS SHOWN ON TV. THIS WAS NOT AS PRACTICAL FOR ME. I WILL STICK WITH THE PORTABLE SCANNER I HAVE NOW. 07-03-15
Rated 1 out of 5 by poor quality scanning very disappointed. scan function worked well but the color was very yellow and the focus was poor. returned item 07-02-15
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good for some purposes The scanner part works good and you can quickly capture items, however, the color on some items may not be as good. We played with the settings and got it as good as we good and some of our photos have a yellowing in the color. This may be because we are scanning older photos (garbage in garbage out). If we put something under the plastic it was worse so do not do that. It is a nice to have and certainly handy to capture documents, pictures, etc. quickly and anywhere but if you expect or need perfection you might stick with a large scanner. 06-29-15
Rated 4 out of 5 by So Far So Good! I was very excited when I saw this demonstrated on QVC! I thought it was a new technology! I found out it wasn't exactly new but. I read the reviews, after I had made my purchase, and was a little nervous. There were several very bad or questionable reviews but then there were also excellent reviews. I received this last week but tonight was the first time I had a chance to sit down and install it. I am going to use my regular mouse for mouse work and only use the scanner mouse when I scan. So as not to inadvertently mess up the scanning screen. I tried to save the little protector but it seems to have been lost on my desk. So I will just make sure to keep it clean and safe when I am not using it. I have scanned three test photos this evening. It did work as advertised but you do have to make sure your hand is steady and even. I will have to check to see if there is a way to manually set the DPI. The pictures I scanned were very clear and bright but the scan wasn't quite. They were good, but not the same quality. I will continue to make tests and will update this if I find any issues. So far so good! 06-22-15
Rated 2 out of 5 by Disappointed I'm very disappointed in this product. It is much harder to use than demonstrated on air. The directions to download have not been updated to match the actual website, and so it's not out of the box ready. I've learned it works better on smaller items that you can revise the size, however I was hoping to use it on 8 1/2 X 11 documents for work - does not provide even satisfactory scans when document is that large. Kept it for small items like receipts, etc. but not as useful as I had hoped 06-22-15
Rated 1 out of 5 by Not Happy ! Bought this last week and tried to use and it isn't easy to use . Also went to Amazon and same product was $ 29.99 am shocked QVC would be that much higher in price. The halo was 2 easy pay and I pay would have paid for product .Also the pad is only a paper folder and you don't even need it to scan. I love QVC but this product was just wrong from price to performance. 06-22-15
Rated 1 out of 5 by Makes Your Pictures Into Abstract Art If there was a way to give zero stars, I will. When you try to scan a photo, it causes the picture to become very distorted. I did a picture and after many attempts, I made a picture passable, instead of something that should be in a Picaso's art gallery. Even the passable picture, the mouse scanner makes the picture very grainy. I am sending this back. Halo should work out kinks out of this product. Very, very disappointing. 06-18-15
Rated 1 out of 5 by distorts easily I bought this in 2013 and occasionally use it, but very hard to get photos correct. Even when I am holding mouse straight as I go across photo, the square scanning the photo starts to turn and the image gets distorted. It is extremely hard to do a larger photo, have to go over it numerous times to get an image that is just passable. This would be a great idea if it worked. Don't understand why fellow that presents it doesn't talk about the fact that it starts to turn and you have to start over.....is there some trick that he is not sharing? Wouldn't purchase again, nor recommend to anyone I know. 06-10-15
