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.
Summary: There are a few things I like about this scanner: It can save multiple pages into a single document. I can select from some presets documents sizes, and color/gray-scale/b&w before I scan. It scans up to legal size paper. It will also allow me to set the size of paper to be scanned manually.
Summary: has a mechanical switch that registers as no paper in scanner if receipt is bowed up at all. entrance chute wont take the receipt if its wrinkled at all. works fine on letter paper. if you dont want it for receipts, great product.
Not a bad scanner overall, but a few very frustrating quirks

Summary: The scanner was easy to install and seems to work well enough. I use it heavily for all of my receipts and recently went through my file cabinet and scanned most of my documents into digital form. It allows you to scan to PDF, JPEG, or TIFF and to set the varying qualities for each.
Summary: In retrospect, I would likely have been better off purchasing a standard wireless printer and keyboard combination, but I wanted a nimble scanner to digitize my pay stubs. This scanner does a better job than many similar products, but it certainly takes some work!
Summary: Ok, I was looking for a scanner to rid myself of paper clutter and those magazines that I was saving for one or two articles. I was undecided between the Brother DS-600 or the Fujitsu Scan Snap S1100. Since the Brother was less expensive I decided to try it out.
Summary: All flatbed scanners I own have a white background, meaning that if you scan a business card in a full letter size, the background comes out white. The downside of this is that if there is written stuff on the other side and the paper is a bit translucent, the other side will show up lightly in the...
Summary: I returned this scanner after one use, and I believe that the one I received had some defects. Installation was fairly easy. The very brief instructions make it clear that you have to install the software FIRST before connecting the scanner. The software disc has a more detailed PDF guide.
Summary: The unit works fine for single pages, which it is designed for. I am happy with the speed, size and weight of the unit. It is very portable and fits nicely into my laptop back-pack. The only negative I would mention is the paper feeding.
