Does anyone have experience using a handheld scanner to capture text and graphics? I have a project coming up where a handheld scanner would probably be helpful if the results were good and easy to manage.

Handheld scanners seem to have faded from use in recent years, to judge by their availability in the average computer store. The reason, I think, is that you need a steady hand to get a good scan.

They have their uses -for example, if you want to scan an old book whose bindings might be damaged if you placed it in a flatbed scanner. But, unless you have a particular reason for using a handheld scanner, a flatbed one would probably give you better results.
