    anyone using the neatdesk organizer?

    i have been thinking about getting this digital filing system, tryneat.com. it looks handy. with three business' i have alot of related paperwork and scanning and filing and all the good stuff that comes with it can take a toll on a man, and my wife. i am wondering if it is as useful as it looks. anyone have or investigated it?

    I agree....have mine for going on 3 years now - and really like it.

    I think the basic difference between the Neat Desk and the Neat Receipt is speed.

    You can take the neat desk with you.....it's not very big. Problem is it needs a 115V power supply and USB to your computer. I'm not entirely sure of the requirements of the smaller version.

    It's really a simply machine to use - scan in whatever you want a copy of, and it pops up on your computer screen.

    The hardest part for me was setting up my "file cabinet"......and that wasn't overly tough to do.

    Yeah, TryNeat is a program that is installed on your computer. The information from the scanner is kept within the program.

    Basically the program consists of electronic file cabinets that you set up.....all it really is amounts to areas where you can quickly find the information you're looking for.

    The program does allow you to convert images to PDF's and save them in other folders on your computer (folders unrelated to the TryNeat program).

    When all is said and done - it's really nothing more than an electronic filing cabinet.....and while it does have a few little bells and whistles that I haven't really looked into - TryNeat does about what your current filing cabinet does.

    what is the difference between the two? i am kinda leaning towards the portable one. i need it to be easely moved and set up each time? do you prefer one over the other? with the portable one, does it need to be hooked up for every scan or does it have some storage?
