Summary: Now that it's up and running, ist great. However, getting it there is a different story. I could not get the Wi-Fi to work, so I went with the USB cable. Download appeared straight forward. There was not desk top icon. Checking the program in the startup, the Scan folder was empty. I spent 52 minutes talking to tech support and they couldn't get it to work. After talking with a supervisor, I was transferred to a level II tech. Ray was great.
Excerpt: Did a lot of research and decided on this vs more expensive fujitsu models. I was not disappointed. Set up is easy, no blank pages, no double feeds, multiple pages in one PDF file so easily !. I don't have to do one by one in my flatbed scanner. The double sided feature works beautifully, just scan it once and it reads both sides !!
Pros: Easy To Set Up, Good Resolution, Multiple Users, Wireless Scan
Summary: This scanner is an amazing piece of hardware. I wanted to go paperless, so I retired my 3 file cabinets. It was a task to scan over 150,000 pages double-sided in color. I cannot imagine doing this task without this scanner. Not even my Oki all-in-one scanner compares. The S/W that comes with it it's worth just the money. It corrects crooked pages, the color is scanning is fabulous, feature that are not available in Acrobat XI Pro.
Summary: This scanner was pretty simple to set up. It did take longer than I expected it to for the software to install. I also found that once you had chosen a set up option (wireless vs. USB cable), you couldn't go back to change it. Once it was clear that the wireless setup wouldn't work for me I ended up having to force quit the software in order to go back and choose the USB option. There is a 'go back' button, but it was disabled for me, at least.
Summary: It does what it is supposed to do, but I haven't found much use for it as a teacher. A flatbed scanner is more versatile for my purposes. If you are running a business and have to constantly scan documents and business cards, then this may be the scanner for you. I have only tried it on a PC and it works fine via USB.

Summary: Let me first say that I wholeheartedly believe in OWNING a scanner. I think every house should have a scanner to quickly deal with and then recycle / shred and recycle paper. There is just so much paperwork generated by our modern world. There's no reason to clutter a house up with it. Not only that, but having the scanned version - and backups online - means that even if the house has flood damage or fire damage, all those papers are still safe.
Summary: Being a paperless office, I use a scanner all the time. When my Dell scanner bit the dust, I purchased this one as a replacement. Installation could not have been easier. Once installed, the set up portion connected to my wireless network without issue. I use Nuance's Paperport and Power PDF for my paperless document handling and was concerned that there would be a time delay in making Nuance work with this scanner. That was not the case.
Summary: I really like this scanner - it does the job outstandingly well. Fast, efficient and relatively small. I love how easy it was to set up, the software is a bit difficult to deal with at first though. Scanning to the iCloud is a really nice feature, and the fact that it scans both sides at once really impressed me. I'd definitely recommend this scanner to anyone.
