It's a pretty good network scanner, but could be a lot better.

Jack, Amazon
15 August 2014
  • Summary: I purchased this scanner to use with a document management system (DMS) I'm currently implementing at work. The scanner has been pretty good so far. The small size is an advantage on a crowded desk and it folds up to take up even less space when not in use. Setting up the scanner was simple. I did not install the included software; I'm just using it as a standalone network scanner.

Too expensive for regular office use

W. Parise, Amazon

  • Summary: I do like it. It works well, although sometimes I need to reset the scan settings if it has been unplugged. My main grief is that you can get one almost as good for much less money, even within the Brother family.

Not recommended.

Amazon Customer "oferefo", Amazon
9 January 2014
  • Summary: With the first one, the touchscreen was frozen, it never work. The cd with the software never opened. I had to download it. The setup from the devise is impossible. I finally realized it is easier to set it up from the computer. Useless customer support, very difficult to find email address. With the second one we kept test scanning and every time several pages were upside down no matter what. I am returning it.

Not good for network scanning unless you want to spend 1 minute waiting for it scan and send.

Brian Largarticha, Amazon
10 December 2013
  • Summary: I bought this scanner because it has network functionality. I was able to get it connect to the network, although the instructions are not very good and I had to try several different formats for the path. The problem is this scanner takes 30 seconds to "connect" and start scanning, then another 30 seconds to send the file. That's too long! I have a 10 year old ricoh multifunction copier that has faster scanning on it.

Meets my needs perfectly

Eric Romaine, Amazon
7 December 2013
  • Summary: This scanner handles paper well, scans fast, and the output is fantastic. The setup was fast and easy and I have not had any problems with it. I can't comment too much on the features because I simply use it to scan huge documents (25 pages) into PDFs and then save them. For my needs, it works perfectly and has been hassle-free. I love Brother products and I feel they are worth the extra price.

Not good

  • Excerpt: We could not connect to the wireless no matter how we tried. So it was returned. Could be just a defect for this particular machine, but we decided to go with a different brand all together.

Easy, fast network scanner

Walter L. Keeney, Amazon
6 July 2013
  • Summary: The best connected small workgroup scanner I have had. We use it in our small office for a lot f scan to e mail as well as archiving documents. The software running on each workstation makes it very simple for any user to connect with and use the scanner and it is a lot faster than scanning with any of our multi-purpose devices. The only bad point is that it is a little noisy but even that is not too bad.

working extremely well

G. Yorke, Amazon
25 June 2013
  • Summary: We've used this for about 100 pages / day in an office environment and have mostly positive things to say. This replaced a six year old HP document scanner which, though a workhorse, was slow by today's standards, and only scanned one side at a time. The positives are: - fast ... everybody who uses it for the first time comments on the speed. - duplex is a timesaver and no slower (it seems) than single sided.

How much is your time worth?

Reademandweep, Amazon
22 June 2013
  • Summary: I won't do a side by side comparison. Thank you to the previous reviewers who took the time to do a better job than I probably would. I want to add a vote of yes to anyone on the fence. I'm self employed with years worth of paperwork I've been told not to destroy. Half my attic has boxes full of documents, contracts and receipts dating back to 1975 - not to mention thousands of photos taken over the years (4 kids and a husband who's an entertainer).
