Very basic scanner
July 16, 2015
By EmileeP
Purchased this scanner today and I am EXTREMELY dissatisfied.

Pros:
None. At first I liked its compact size but then as I used it the compact size became a problem.

Cons:
feels fragile/easy to break

A very lengthy set up process. They walk you through the download but then you are on your own for configuring the network setup. Took about 1.5 hours and 2 IT specialists to finally get it set up.

DOES NOT HAVE A 1 SIDE scan option when trying to scan into a network. Which makes the scanning painfully slow. I called customer service because I thought surely there was an issue with my device and "tod", my ever so helpful agent, told me that this was just a product limitation and there was nothing that could be done to fix it... your kidding me right? 1 hour on hold for that fantastic advice?

This scanner does not have 25ppm. When using network it is closer to 5ppm. Around 10ppm when using usb cable. FALSE ADVERTISING.

After scanning 50 documents in a 20 minute time frame the device simply stopped working. Even after a full re-boot the device continued to not work.

OVERALL:
I will be returning this tomorrow. If you are looking for a scanner for home use and a small 2 page job then this will work fine. If you need to use it consistently then take my word for it and spend the extra money for a quality scanner. THIS PRODUCT is not a quality scanner.

Great purchase

I really like my scanner. It takes a little while to get the hang of it and it does a great job. Each time you use it you have to go back the the scanner central icon.

Disappointing
July 6, 2015
By GSalvo from San Diego, CA
The button/lever that allows you to open/close the scanner to clear jams, etc., broke after only the second use. Sadly, I waiting too long after purchase to install, so the machine was no longer under warranty. Could only exchange it with Brother directly and needed a scanner NOW, so bought a different one. Expensive lesson for me. Stay away, this scanner is flimsy, and there's nothing to catch your scanned documents when they exit the scanner!

It scans both sides of documents quickly and has been quite reliable so far.
