Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Duplex Scanning I had to use this equipment a little while before I could give it a fair review, and with that said I want to say that this scanner is great. I am glad it uses the TWAIN Drivers and that it does 2 sided scanning, along with scanning in color. It is small and compact, which makes it very portable. I seems a little on the overweight side, but not much. It has the weight that I like to anchor it to the desk without having to worry about it falling over. All-in-all this is a very good product.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Unreliable This scanner works beautifully at times, and not others. It jams a lot. Now there is a problem connecting with the USB to my computer. I have had to send it back for a replacement once, and the replacement does the same thing the previous one did. Support tries, but no help in the end. Shopping for a scanner made by another company now.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works Well;Small Footprint;Good Value This unit does what it says it does and generally I am pleased with it. It also comes with better than average support by phone. I also regard it as a good value. It has both wireless and USB interfaces which is a nice touch. Paper jams are easily cleared. It supports a large number of paper sizes. The unit will directly scan to popular cloud servers. Unfortunately it can be complex to initially setup in order to take advantage of all its features. More comprehensive documentation would help. This is especially an issue for Mac users as much of the documentation is Windows focused. One thing that would make the unit more attractive would be to have rechargeable battery operation. Currently it must have AC power to operate. Given that the email feature only supports POP servers, using it with Apple Mail is not an option as Apple on supports IMAP. Some of the included 3rd party software for OCR scanning and operation could stand some improvement. OCR operation is slow and some of the software interfaces are complex and confusion. The Mac software is 32 bit based which will not longer function after MacOS 10.13 (High Sierra), according to Apple as they will only support 64 bit software in the next major update. The card scanning software is especially confusing and lacks features found in competing products. Many of the scanning features are duplicated in a similar manner in some of the included software packages which adds to the confusion. Better integration would be nice. However the software drivers, from Brother are up-to-date and do support the latest operating systems. While scanning can be started from the color led display panel on the scanner, its 'shortcuts' do not store custom settings but must be redone for each scan. Storing custom setting in 'Shortcuts' would make this feature much more useful. Consumables such as some of the rollers and paper guide have a long life and are easily replaceable by the user at a fair price.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Product! I use this product almost everyday and it is easy to use. You can scan multiple items at once or one at a time and long items. There are only a few issues I'm not happy with. I don't like using the receipt holder to scan receipts. If you scan the receipts without the receipt holder the receipt could jam up in the scanner. I like to scan at best quality but lowest file space size. Even though you can adjust the file size/quality it doesn't always seem to work well. You either get small file size at low quality or good quality at large file size. I'm still an amateur at using this so maybe there is a way to get the best of both quality and small file size.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fast and Easy! Just what I needed - a wireless, multi-page scanner. Using it to digitize binders full of genealogical printed pages. Especially like ability to direct variety of where and how to save scanned images.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Precision The precision of the scans is fabulous. In Acrobat Pro, the OCR always comes out perfect. Love this scanner. I just wish the documents went in face-up, but I'll live with that.
