Excerpt: I will recommend this to friends and family,i scanned my documents very fast.Unlike our scanner that you need to open the scanner and close it.This one is perfect for the business.And when im uskng it i want more paperwork to scan.so buy it now and you will know what i mean .
Summary: This is awesome. It scans a full size sheet (obviously), and anything smaller, fairly quickly, and quietly. It will scan legal size also. It will turn the scan into pdf, or a jpg, saving the image to an SD card in the back. Since it has a rechargeable battery, it is very portable and handy. It is very easy to scan a document, or picture, move the SD card to a computer and e-mail. Software is included to organize your files.
Very useful and convenient - doesn't do 2 side printing though.

Summary: This machine has been excellent for me. I travel a ton for work and all the checks I write for our business, I scan a copy of the check with the invoice. So nice that it doesn't have to be plugged in to scan or connected to your computer - it just saves straight to the SD card. The one bummer is that this version, the 820 does not have 2 sided printing. Besides that, this is my new best friend for an assistant whose always on the go and doing business on the road.
Summary: Compact, light, fully featured AND a great price. It does everything I need at the office, home office and on the road. It doesn't do duplex scanning. That's OK for me. Most of the papers and receipts I scan is one sided anyway. And if I, occasionally, need to scan two sides, I'll just have to feed the other side one more time. Scans to memory card, to my desktop and to my iPad. Great for on the road scanning. Very satisfied!
Summary: I have used several desktop scanners, but sometimes you are working on a project or task that takes you away from your desk, but still need a scanner. rather than lugging around a big one or going back and forth to your main desk, this is an amazing solution. It is light, easy to transport and most importantly, provides and excellent image. Yes, you must recognize what this is and its limitations. It is not the fastest or highest quality scanner you will ever use.
Summary: Brother continues to amaze me with their combination of high quality and lower cost. Here is another great product from Brother that works as well as products costing 2-3 times as much. I need to scan and print from the road so this item is a lifesaver. The size is super small and it works perfectly. Also, the setup could not have been easier. I Highly recommend this portable scanner if you are in need of one.
Summary: As others have said, this is not a duplex scanner, and it has to be hand fed. To scan receipts and orders while away from the office, it works fine an the image quality is clear. It is very compact and wireless which is exactly what we needed. If you are looking for a good solution for simple scanning needs, this is the way to go. If you need a scanner that you can press go and leave it while you work, you will want to look for something else.
