Conclusion: The Brother ImageCenter ADS-2500W has some rare features for a desktop scanner at its price, such as Wi-Fi connectivity and a color touch screen, but proved sluggish, especially in scanning to searchable PDFs.
Pros: Very good OCR performance. Wi-Fi and Ethernet connectivity. Color touch screen. Scans to multiple destinations.
Cons: Slow for its rated speed. Very slow in scanning to searchable PDF. Relatively frequent misfeeds. "Full" software setup leaves two programs uninstalled.
