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...
Scanning time is slow, 2sided scanning a real plus.

Summary: I was in need of a replacement for my Vissioneer portable scanner, (no driver support past Vista, will never buy Vissioneer scanner again). This Brother scanner is slower than what I wanted but TWO SIDES SCANNING, made it worth it and a time saver.
Summary: I like this scanner based on its size, ease of use, price, and speed. I do not like, however, the challenging task of aligning the paper in the scanner to prevent a black line, which is usually crooked, across the top.
Excerpt: Great scanner for the price. It runs a little slow but I can work with that. Only negative is that I received an e-mail a week after ordering it that I can receive $20 off an online purchase: (
Pros: Accurate Color, Easy To Set Up, Excellent Software, Good Bit Depth, Good Resolution
Summary: Scans both sides. Unfortunately, I use windows OS and Ubuntu. This scanner will not work with Ubuntu. I have searched for drivers that would allow it to work, but I haven't had any luck. So I am stuck scanning into a windows machine. Other than that, it's a great scanner.
Summary: If this scanner had a provision for aligning the feed document better, I'd give it 10 stars. I manage to butcher about one out of three scans because the paper gets sucked in crooked. No matter how careful I am, the scan is off kilter. Other than that, it's a fantastic little scanner.
Summary: I have been using this with my iMac for a few weeks now and am really liking this. I have been trying to get rid of all paper receipts in my house and moved towards keeping electronic copies of papers instead. This scanner includes MAC software which just works.
Summary: We just got this scanner and the software is a little quirky but the scanner is what I expected. I like it a lot, it uses a USB for power, it's small, light and portable and pretty fast too. The actual DIRECTIONS are included with the software so DO NOT plug the USB into your computer.
