Overpriced Disposable Scanner - Buyer Beware!

DJL, Amazon
3 November 2014
  • 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. I don't expect Brother to cover it beyond the standard year but it's unacceptable for this device to die so quickly after little use.

  • Excerpt: Staples claimed that item was refurbished, although did not function when received. Very disappointed as this was my first attempt at purchasing on the Staples website.

  • Summary: I've tried 10 times to get this thing to work. It looks like it would be amazing. But clearly not compatible with a mac, even they claim to be.

WARNING

24 January 2014
  • 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/photographer", Amazon
17 December 2013
  • 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.

Returned mine

as93021, Office Depot
11 February 2013
  • 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. Then when we started to scan, we realized that a) it was thinking that every photo was 8.5 x 11, b) you can select standard photo sizes but not odd ones; the scanner won't automatically detect paper size, c) we could make the...

Poor customer support for a bad product

Amazon Customer "Tony", Amazon
13 August 2012
  • 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. After several attempts at contacting Brother by email on their product support address I received NOTHING back. I gave up and now it is a paper weight. I accept that things go wrong, but it is just unforgiveable that they will not even respond.

Disappointed - defective

Deborah J, Amazon
13 March 2012
  • 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. Thank goodness Amazon backs their products. I sent (the brand new) scanner back and ordered a Fujitsu that works great. Thanks Amazon!

DS 600 did not stand up

Andre Oldham, Amazon
5 March 2012
  • 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. I did a compatibility test and it said it was not capatible with the OS systems, However prior to purchasing it I verified OS capatibility.
