CZUR Shine Ultra

A New Way To Scan

A New Way to Scan

I have used scanners for many years. I sold scanner beds in the 90’s. Over the many years since then I have scanned using the scanner contained in the all-in-one printers. In December 2019, I saw an Indiegogo ad for a CZUR portable document scanner and projector. I was too late for the cheapest price, but I signed up for the crowdsourcing of the CZUR Shine Ultra Scanner for $119. It was still in development and manufacturing in China and would be ready for shipping in about 3 months.

I took delivery in September 2020. I did a presentation that shows some of the features of my new equipment on my weekly show, Tech For Seniors, https://www.techforsenior.com/tech-for-seniors . See below for the video of the presentation. During the Q & A session after the show, there were many questions. There was some difficulty finding the model that I purchased. There were also questions on the specs of my model and the differences between it and the other CZUR scanner models.

To find the links proved to be difficult so here are the current ways to find the model that I purchased.

There is currently a new Indiegogo campaign for their Aura model, at a more expensive price than the model that I purchased. The Czur website does not make it easy to find the specs or compare the models. I have captured the info from various pages on their site. Here are the specs (Click each to enlarge):
