Brother Wireless Scanner

Mani, B&H Photo

The scan quality is great, but it jams very easily

Brent Foster, Amazon
26 November 2015
  • Summary: The scan quality is great, but it jams very easily. It needs additional guides to help feed the paper into the device. In addition, the network sacnning feature is not compatible with the new Mac OS. Disappointing.

OK option for portable needs, but not for desktop

Christopher F., Newegg
2 November 2015
  • Summary: I bought this instead of the ScanSnap because I felt the need for TWAIN drivers was required - big mistake. Many software programs CAN work with a ScanSnap despite TWAIN drivers.
  • Pros: Fast scanning, decent quality
  • Cons: Not user friendly, crumples pages regularly & jams, requires scanning all the time BACKWARDS

Terrific Scanner!

Rebecca, Amazon
13 September 2015
  • Summary: I am very pleased with the Brother ADS 1500W Compact Color Desktop Scanner. Prior to this purchase, I was using an all-in-one printer/scanner and it was slow. I can't believe the speed of this scanner. It has the capability to scan both sides of a paper in one run through the scanner.

Good Scanner, a little design flaw.

J. Hernandez, Amazon
1 September 2015
  • Summary: I think the software is good and I think for the most part it is a decent scanner. Does it Jam, it depends on the paper. I think I found a design flaw. I was going to get rid of the scanner because it was just not reliable because it would always jam or skew.

An affordable cloud enabled scanner with auto-feeder

sushyad, Amazon
27 August 2015
  • Summary: Very happy with the scanner. I always wanted an auto-feeder on my scanner but they were always so expensive. This is a very affordable scanner with auto-feeder and cloud capabilities are an extra bonus. My wife always complained that she could never get the old flatbed scanner working.

Another Great Product from Brother

David S., Amazon
27 July 2015
  • Summary: I am a big fan of scanning and had been using the scanner feature of my Brother printer to reduce the paper clutter in my office. After comparing several similar products I decided on the Brother ADS-1500W because of it's compact size and my previous favorable experience with Brother products.

Great product for scanning mail / invoices

Da Chen, Amazon
16 July 2015
  • Summary: First of all I want to point out a solution for 'Dropbox security' concern, that many guys worried that providing Dropbox account to Brother's website is too risky, this can be resolve by creating a new Dropbox account, scan document to that account and share the FromBrothers folder to your main...

Almost, but Not Quite, Linux Plug-n-Play; Very Good as a Standalone Scanner

xıo, Amazon
1 July 2015
  • Summary: Let me be blunt: I run Linux and this unit was advertised as being Linux compatible. It is, but with more effort than it ought to - even by Linux standards. Linux-oriented documentation is negligible, whereas as the Mac OS X documentation is paltry and the Windows documentation is thorough.

Would not recommend

HOTinPHX, Amazon
26 June 2015
  • Summary: Does not live up the the quality of other Brother products. Very cheaply made, and only works when it wants to. Software was difficult to install, and wouldn't even run on my laptop.
