    I learned that they won PC Mag's 2013 best of the year.

    Its friggin' awesome… I think I would give this away as a gift to someone if I won.  I just don't see myself toting a portable scanner around.  One of my friends would love it, early christmas present 😉

    I visited the Flip-Pal site, and I learned that the Flip-Pal saves the images that are scanned to an SD memory card in a folder called 100_SCAN.

    I like how the scnner cn go to the item needing scanning. That i really helpful with the older items that you may not want to move around because they are too fragile. Thanks for the awesome giveaway and chance to win!!!

    You should be able to get about 150 scans from quality alkaline batteries.  

  6. Karen H in NC January 23, 2014 at 10:13 am -

    I think it's great that it will scan sections of a large item and 'stitch' it back together. 

  7. rayraycartucci January 23, 2014 at 10:35 am -

    The scanner is designed to be powerful,quick and easy…learned that from visiting the site.

  8. Suzanne Giroux January 23, 2014 at 10:39 am -

    One of the things I learned from the website is that you do not need to remove photos from albums or frames to scan them.

  9. Debbie Loy January 23, 2014 at 10:53 am -

    AQ computer is not needed to scan just an SD card.

  10. jo n January 23, 2014 at 11:41 am -

    What a great idea to have an extra copy of important items.

  11. Harry Pleer January 23, 2014 at 11:42 am -

    I can save all my old photos very easily with this scanner.

  12. Carrie January 23, 2014 at 11:47 am -

    I love that you dont even have to remove photos fom albums to scan them

  13. LDC (@elle_dee_see) January 23, 2014 at 1:53 pm -

    Flip-Pal is AWESOME!! There's a stitch function that lets you combine small scans into one big photo. You can scan things right on the wall or in a frame because the lid comes off — ie, a quilt or wall-hanging. 

  14. Gord January 23, 2014 at 2:29 pm -

    I learned that it is quick and easy to set up.

  15. Debbie Petch January 23, 2014 at 3:00 pm -

    I am to crafting so I really like the tile idea!

  16. terrijean jacobo January 23, 2014 at 3:10 pm -

    wonderful! they support breast cancer awareness too!

  17. Jodi S. January 23, 2014 at 5:16 pm -

    What a great idea – so much better than the wand scanners that are usually offered. We have family members who are very protective of old family photos, and this would be great for being able to scan items at THEIR homes, giving them peace of mind that they have them and yet we all get to enjoy them. Loved the website for this scanner – informative about the product itself, comparisons between results of items scanned with this vs other methods and scanners, plus I really liked seeing the instructional videos and that they offer protective screen sheets!

  18. Lucy Lopez January 23, 2014 at 5:19 pm -

    I learned that it is wireless and you can be sharing your pictures in less than 2 mins.

  19. Cynthia P January 23, 2014 at 6:08 pm -

    It's nice that you can take the scanner to the photo (cuz it's battery powered) instead of the other way around, and also, it's allows a person to scan photos in place without removing them from a frame or an album.   Cool!

  20. Rose Hately January 23, 2014 at 6:25 pm -

    You can scan photos in place from an album. This is a wonderful, useful feature for genealogists and family historians. I could make great use of this device!

  21. Juliee Fitze January 23, 2014 at 6:34 pm -

    I learned it runs on batteries and it scans to a sd card 

  22. Wanda C. January 23, 2014 at 6:40 pm -

    I love how easy it sounds to start using.  No software to load.  Great.

  23. Jan Hall January 23, 2014 at 6:43 pm -

    I LOVE that you can scan photos without taking them out of the frame or album. I have some old photos that I would like to share but can't remove them without tearing them up. I need this

  24. Jennifer Johansen January 23, 2014 at 7:55 pm -

    I learned it doesn't need to be connected to a computer to scan, and that it can scan photos that are still in an album or a frame.

  25. j gentry January 24, 2014 at 3:41 pm -

    This would be awesome to scan photos or pictures my grandchildren make for me and I love that it is so portable and convenient!

  26. Catherine Alger January 25, 2014 at 9:47 am -

    I learned that it runs on batteries and saves on a sd card

  28. Anna W January 25, 2014 at 1:23 pm -

    I learned that the expected life span of the scanner is a minimum of 10,000 scans. That is a lot of awesome scanning!!

    This would REALLY be HANDY everyday for photos,documents and just plain anything!

  30. Robyn B. January 25, 2014 at 2:14 pm -

    I learned from the website is that you do not need to remove photos from albums or frames in order to scan them.

  31. Trisha W. January 25, 2014 at 2:54 pm -

    I learned it was a Top Seller on Amazon for 2012.

  32. Jody D January 26, 2014 at 7:41 pm -

    I love that it is wireless! and can scan large pics in sections. So versatile!

  33. irma5353 January 26, 2014 at 10:33 pm -

    I learned that you don't need a computer to scan your picks on it.

  34. Anita L January 27, 2014 at 6:39 am -

    I learned that the Flip-Pal portable scanner was PC Magazine Editor's Choice in June of 2013.

  35. Kathy C. January 28, 2014 at 9:02 pm -

    I learned that you don't have to take pics out of the album.  You can put the scanner on the album instead.  Awesome!!

  36. Terra Agueda January 29, 2014 at 10:08 am -

    I like that scans are saved to a card… so that they can be easily transfered to any computer or harddrive. 


  37. Joyce Mayhan January 29, 2014 at 11:32 am -

    The thing that excites me most is the ability to use it im my genealogy researc, being able to go to older members of the family and scan their precious pictures right there would be priceless.

  38. alena svetelska January 30, 2014 at 9:23 am -

    I have learning that is wireless and very easy to set up.

  39. Angela Ke February 1, 2014 at 11:10 am -

    Very versatile for scanning all kinds of items from documents to heirlooms.

  40. Beaynbopp February 2, 2014 at 8:15 am -

    I learned that you can scan pretty much anything including coins, medals and all! That is awesome!! I have never come across a scanner that could do that before! Also you can take it anywhere since it is wireless and does not have to be plugged in.

  41. Lisa F. February 3, 2014 at 8:18 pm -

    I learned that a computer is not needed to scan things. Conveinient!

  42. Jesselyn A/Jesstinger February 6, 2014 at 1:09 am -

    I've had several scanners before – but nothing even remotely close to the Flip-Pal! It does amazing things like scan photos that are already in a scrapbook or on the wall in a frame!!! 

    Then there is the "Stitch Function" that actually allows you to combine a series of small scans into one great big photo! To call it a "scanner" really don't do it justice!

  43. Janette Polivka February 6, 2014 at 11:38 pm -

    I didn't know it could burn cds.  Man, this thing can do it all, awesome!!!
