Summary: I have spent 2 days getting this scanner to connect to my computer. This software is some of the most poorly designed I have ever seen. I have had numerous printers as well as other devices put on a wireless network, and never have I had such difficulty. The scanner software itself is very primitive and hard to use. I cannot believe anyone in this day and age would release software that was so poorly executed.
A very good and compact document scanner, but software has limited photograph adjustment

Summary: From a hardware perspective, the DS-510 is a nice piece of equipment. Solidly constructed, attractive and compact. It's easy to unfold the inward and outward hoppers and to access the insides in case of jams (though no jams have occurred thus far). The automatic sheet-feeding is so great to have.. it's nice to be able to put a stack of pages to be scanned and let it auto-feed, vs. manually placing each sheet individually on a flatbed scanner.
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.
