Works good

Dale K., Newegg
24 September 2010
  • Summary: We haven't used any of the included software, since the primary use is a TWAIN connection to our medical records application. Remember; always download the latest driver from the company's web site.
  • Pros: Works as advertised. Originally installed on a Windows XP system, and is now installed on a Windows 7 (32bit) system. It's used daily in a medical office, and regularly scans standard and odd size documents such as insurance cards.
  • Cons: Nothing to note.

  • Summary: I wrote my review last year, but I wanted to respond to the last reviewer. I upgraded to Windows 7 - 64bit a couple months ago and I haven't had any problem using the scanner, either with the built in software or with 3rd party software.
  • Pros: Works fine with Windows 7 - 64bit.
  • Cons: No free Acrobat Professional.

Excellent Hardware

  • Summary: It handles small receipts just fine and the software does a decent job of deskewing them if they rotate during the scan. I haven't used the Fujitsu 500/1500 that competes with this, but I wouldn't buy one just because they don't come with a TWAIN driver.
  • Pros: Very solid hardware, fast, easy to open, nice and simple driver software. If all you want is to drop papers in and have pdfs appear on your computer, it's great. It scans both sides very quickly. The "Epson Scan" front end to the driver is good. If you want those pdfs to have OCRed text you need ...
  • Cons: The Fujitsu comes with a full copy of Acrobat Pro, which is very handy software if you work with PDFs alot, and if you're getting this kind of scanner, you probably do. If this scanner came with Finereader Professional 8 I'd give it five stars, but though the hardware is great, and the driver sof...

Solid and fast. Software bundle needs help

Harrison M., Newegg
17 March 2009
  • Summary: Gave it 4 stars because of the speed and build quality. This scanner should last forever. Had to dock it because software is just poor. When I compare it to the forthcoming Fujitsu Scansnap S1500M it falls short on software.
  • Pros: This thing is built solidly. It's a brick so don't buy it if you're space challenged because this is one stout unit. The scanner is fast and has a clean front panel. When closed up it's compact enough to stick in a corner of the desk but extended trays take up more space naturally.
  • Cons: Software. As the previous user stated on a Mac this thing requires admin passwords 6 times and after that long process you're greated with Abbyy Finereader software that looks like it's circa 1995. I thought I was back in OS 9 days. The Presto card reader software was equally abysmal. Epson Scan ...

  • Summary: Good Scanner for the price. Simple scanning procedure. Usb mode simple to install and use. Network version more difficult as would be expected. Only minor complaint is the delevery tray is a bit flimsy other wise very happy.
