Summary: Purchased scanner in December 2012 and used sparingly for personal items (receipts, tax forms, etc.). Scanner died November 2014. No longer powers on when plugged in. Since it's outside of 1 the year warranty period, this will end up in a landfill.
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.
Software and hardware could get improvements for a better workflow

Summary: I purchased this scanner because I am on expenses for my company most of the time, and they require me to scan all receipts as soon as I get them. I was looking for something that could help me do this as quick as possible and this scanner did not help me.
Excerpt: I bought this to scan a bunch of photos, some of which are odd in size. First, the DVD could not be read. Not a huge problem, I was able to download the driver from Brother's website. But the Presto software was not available from the website.
Summary: I purchased one of these for scanning documents and reports on my travels. It stopped working after only a few scans. I contacted Brother to send it for repair as I really liked the compactness and good quality scans.
Summary: I was really excited to receive this, but from the moment I hooked it up it would not feed. I called Brother support and they said it was defective, but were only willing to offer me a refurbished one and I was to pay for shipping. They also wanted a $50 deposit.
Summary: I personally feel that the DS 600 did not deliver what I was looking for in a portabel scanner. I tried to employ this sytem on two computer OS Window Vista and Windows 7 the scanner would not function after I calibrated it.
