Excerpt: Have not used the Brother DS-620 Scanner a whole lot yet, but what I have used it, it seems to work well. The size of the Scanner is quite handy in that it fits right into my Computer Bag. That way I can scan items when I am on the road into my Thumb Drive and when I get home I can just put the Thumb Drive in the USB of my Desktop Computer and either save the scans to files or print them on my Desktop Printer.
Excerpt: Scanner works great AND IS easy to operate. Paper flows thru the scanner easily and no jams have been experienced. Scanner is lightweight and portable and seems to work well on all three laptop computers that I have tried it on. I would definitely recommend this scanner to anyone who is looking for a light weight and portable scanner.
Excerpt: I needed this scanner like I needed a whole in my head. But, I was in Staples and this was on the clearance table. It would have been nice if the scanner came apart so it could be used as a wand to scan books and other non-sheet items, but I have a flat bed scanner, so I overlooked that issue.The scanner was easy to set up following the instructions. My scanner has not demonstrated earlier reviewers' issues where the scan interrupts itself partway through.
Summary: Not a bad scanner, but it wont last long. I was using mine a few times a year and after 13 months I could not scan more than one page before I got an error code. After a total of 45 mins on the phone with Brother tech support, I was told I could send it to a facility in TN to get an estimate on what it would cost to repair it. Not sure its worth all that for an $89 scanner. So I guess you get a years worth of use and then throw it away and get a new one.
Excerpt: The Brother DS-620 scanner has been a great find for our office. The small footprint of the unit makes it great for portablity, but it also does great in a desktop setting as well. Because of the units cost, size, speed, and ability to scan multiple pages, we are in the process of changing over to the Brother DS-620 throughout our small office, (more than 15 of these units). I think it is great for the value!
Excerpt: As a traveling salesman this little scanner goes everywhere i go. It scans with great clarity and the dpi is adjustable in the software which allows me to keep the files small enough to email. I use it almost every week. Will be thrilled when they create a program that will work on my Tablet... then the computer will stay home for ever. The software that came with the scanner is very user friendly.
