Tricky to feed; uneven software

Carl L., Newegg
5 March 2014
  • Summary: Need to practice to get the sheets to go in straight. Smaller than full-size sheets are even trickier; smaller items (like receipts) are impossible unless you use the plastic sleeve.
  • Pros: * duplex scanning * small, portable, no power brick required * easy to use * works well on photos
  • Cons: * tricky to feed sheets in straight * using plastic sleeve reduces contrast of scan * included software can be confusing * does not auto reverse upon jam * grey scale scan quality only so-so

Reliable and convenient

Doctor Nick, Amazon
11 February 2013
  • Summary: Works great so far. 1 or 2 sided scans (2-sided is a little slower, but not much and both are reasonably fast.) Good, clear images. The software that comes with produces JPG and PDF easily. Convenient to attach, remove, and store.

Great personal scanner

Craig S, Amazon
23 September 2012
  • Summary: I read several reviews and settled on the DS700D. I am using this scanner at my desk at work. I wanted duplexing and color with reasonable speed and I didn't want to pay $1,500 as I had paid for multi-feed scanners for our document imaging system. The setup was easy and the scans are very good.

good and bad

Brian, Amazon

  • Summary: Pros: scans quiet and pretty quickly. duplex is nice feature Cons: roller does not grab small paper items, like receipts. have to rescan often due to slippage of paper. you can use the included clear plastic sleeves for these small items and rollers hold much better.

Great scanner

Nevada, Amazon

  • Summary: The scanner is great but the extra software (not really needed) is pretty weak. If you are looking to scan documents for a home office this device is fine.

Mostly Happy

Victoria, Amazon
27 February 2012
  • Summary: I am over-all quite happy with this product. It scans fast and is very quiet. The software is strait-forward and very easy to use. When I first thought of buying a duplex scanner, I worried that the "see through" effect I often got from scanning thin pages on my flatbed scanner would be twice as...

Great scanner for desktop

ReeseCup, Amazon
27 February 2012
  • Summary: I bought the Brother DS700D to scan receipts for digital files. It takes up very little space on desktop, is fast, and decent image quality. Also double sided scanning is a great feature. File software is not the greatest, but for the price,overall,well worth it.

Decent, but not up to par

Nicholas Anthony, Amazon
20 January 2012
  • Summary: First off, let me say that this scanner will do basically everything you expect it to. It will scan documents or business cards, and has duplex capability for two-sided scanning. It can scan in B&W, color, or grayscale, and has variable resolution settings so you can work with it to get your scan...
