WARNING

  • Summary: I have had this scanner for several months. I loved it. And then we changed my OS to Maverick. The scanner no longer works because Panasonic has not upgraded the driver since 2012.

Mac updated to 10.9 and now scanner does not work

Marisa Murgatroyd "documentary filmmaker/phot..., Amazon

  • Summary: Beware this scanner if you have the latest OSX (10.9). It does not ship with drivers that work. They blame Apple. Their "fix" is to install some other bloatware that comes with it and use that to scan instead of the usual scanner driver.

Great for in the field sales!

Pamela Field, Amazon

  • Summary: Great product! I'm in sales and need to be able to scan and send same day contracts when written out of town, away from my home office. It's user friendly. The only change I think I'd make is leaving the document name blank to enter a new one each time a new document is scanned instead of the name of the last document scanned. Not a big issue though once I remembered to set it before starting the new document scan. Set up on a flat surface to assure best copy.

Love it!!!

  • Summary: No more faxing! Wonderful. I don't know what anyone is talking about that there wasn't a manual. If you follow the instruction it says put the CD in before you do anything else. I did. And poof! I installed all I needed and saved the Manual opening it up and followed its instruction. I then scanned my first document! Someone also said that you can only scan one document into pdf well you're wrong.

REVIEW UPDATED 11-2-2013

Tax Accountant "Tax Accountant", Amazon

  • Summary: It's portable and works well in that respect. It is also USB powered and works off your laptop battery, so you will not need batteries or to plug it in when you are traveling, which is a nice plus. But two major drawbacks: 1. Won't scan to PDF. Of course you can scan, then open the image, then save to PDF if you have Acrobat, but it's a lot of extra steps and hassle when you are a busy professional. 2. Also, it scans a multi-page document as a bunch of separate images.

Great entry level portable scanner

Boys like thier toys, Amazon
1 July 2013
  • Summary: I got this to help me scan in my receipts and signing and forwarding forms because I will be traveling and working in a remote office. I tested out the features, after calibrating, I found it easy to use, simple, straight forward, and the scan quality is pretty good, even with a weeks-old wrinkled receipt I had sitting next to me. What I don't like is the larger USB type B plug.

  • Summary: I've enjoyed using this scanner. Quite slow compared to a regular scanner, but if you have a portable office as I do, the most important thing is size and weight. It can even scan a driver's license. I have a Macbook and use the Image Capture Software. The Page Manager Software on the installation disk will not work on my Mac. Brother, please include a quick start guide, or at least have a folder on the installation disk titled "start here.
