Excerpt: Over the years I have purchased many scanners and this Brother document scanner is the best I ever had. Great design, small footprint, wireless, double side scanning in color, intuitive software (downloaded latest from Brother website) and relatively fast.
Pros: Easy To Set Up, Efficient, Fast, Quiet, Sharp Detail
The scan quality is great, but it jams very easily

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.
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.

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.
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.

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
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.
