Summary: Purchased this scanner to replace an older Xerox[Visioner] flatbed scanner with adf. Much smaller footprint, and seems to do all that it advertises. I like the wireless connectivity to my computer. Duplex scanning is a plus.
Typical Brother Quality -- Which is to say "Fantastic"

Summary: This has become my go to scanner for most work. Set-up on wifi was much easier than I expected from reading reviews. It's been about 6 months since I started using it, so I don't remember any set-up details -- But that's a good thing. The quality is much higher than I expected from such a high-speed, duplex scanner, with no blurring or noticeable artifacts. I tend to use this for receipts (without the receipt holder) as well as full page documents.
Summary: Scans quickly. As other reviewers say, to connect to Dropbox, it requires "Full Dropbox" access, as opposed to "App Folder" access. I was uneasy with this. I found an option that I think works better than linking it directly to your Dropbox account. I made a shortcut on the device to scan to my PC. In the PC software's settings, I can choose what folders scanned files land in. I chose folder within my Dropbox folder, and it's done.
Summary: Love the compactness. Bought for desktop use and needed to do double sided scanning. Came with receipt/check sleeve for easier scanning. My only qualm is that it didn't always scan straight, it would veer to the side for crooked scans. The receipt sleeve has an arrow and directions on it that come through the scan, so I always had to crop the scan every time. Without those 2 things I would have given it 5 stars.
Form factor is good, no driver issues too which is always nice

Summary: Form factor is good, no driver issues too which is always nice. Would give it 5 stars if I was happy with the software but I am not. Ended up downloading a freeware program that scans docs into pdf much better for me.
fast and good quality scans - But some advertised features are already withdrawn!

Summary: I'm generally happy with the speed of scanning and so far jams have not been a serious issue. Unfortunately it does not hold online settings when it is turned off and on again, this may be a security feature but it is needlessly time consuming. Very difficult to get card scanner going - I have not managed it yet Even though the product is less than a year old Brother has already withdrawn the scanning to e.mail function.
Summary: The WORST scanner ever!!! I researched and researched for months to find the perfect scanner that would be able to scan my receipts and documents to I could become paper free. WRONG I was, almost every receipt will either get stuck and create a paper jam so you have to open it up, pull it out and reset it. Happens on 98% of them.
