How does it work as a mouse ? I wanted to get the LG version but I was concerned about using it for hours at a time as a mouse.

Purely as a mouse, the IRIScan is more comfy than the LG, thanks to its slightly more ergonomic shape.

Thanks Ardjuna. Also does it have Mac drivers ? The LG originally didn't, I think it does now.

Whoops, just saw the "Only for Windows" in Cons. Oh well

A couple of problems I have found with using the Iris Scanmouse are: 1, the scan button is conveniently placed on the side of the mouse just where you grip it, making it very easy to accidently trigger the scanning mode and 2, like most optical mouse users I am in the habit of lifting the mouse and repostioning it rather than stretching, with the scanmouse this will put it into editing mode forcing you to abandon the scan and start again. Using this mouse will need some adjustments to be made in ingrained habits.

That's valuable input, Andy (for me anyway). I'm trying to decide between this mouse and the LG scanner/mouse, and yours was one of the few reviews I've found for this mouse. The ergonomics are apparently pretty terrible on the LG, so again this is very helpful to me.

So I bought this mouse because I am a student in diagnostic imaging, and part of my field requires me to be able to identify things on images. To test this ability, I thought it would be a good idea to buy this mouse, so I can quickly scan images from reference books without the information and just test myself. However, the images come out looking bad: density, contrast are bad and the grains on the images are horrible... If you are looking to scan documents, then I guess that would be for you, but then again I would just simply use a normal scanner. For anything else and anyone with a relatively good eye, this is horrible...
