Summary: Have been using the Brother ADS2000 for about 2 years. Comes with Paperport which is a very intuitive and easy software system to use. Allows you to scan directly into the file you need , works with Twain specs.Was told to get the scansnap and that it blows the Brother away. Hardware of the scansnap, and the quality of the scans is far superior to the Brother , but after spending hours on the phone with Fijistu support , they told me that the Paperport software is much...
Excerpt: Our office is working its way to become paperless. Most scanners take too long to scan multiple documents, and aren't duplex units. This scanner scans fast and includes duplex (front & back) scanning. Without this unit, we'd waste too much time trying to scan. Super simple to use, too!
Pros: Doesn't Jam, Good Value, Easy to Use, Fast, Quality, Easy to Set Up, Performance
Excerpt: I converted a six drawer file cabinet of over 2000 file folders to about 5 GB of disk space on a computer over several hours, days and weeks. It was so easy and trouble free...uncommonly trouble free. Now scanning/filing and retrieving data is a breeze via PC. Very worthwhile investment!
Pros: Accurate Color, Easy To Set Up, Excellent Software, Good Bit Depth, Good Resolution, Widely Compatible
Summary: Great scanner, did a lot of research and read many reviews. It lives up to the positive ratings. Works very much as described, and functions as shown in many youtube clips. The Scan Snap software is very easy to use and the integration with cloud services is awesome. Experience with Evernote has been perfect, very happy. In 1 week, was able to eliminate 15 years of paper filing. Would love to see business card scanner integration with Outlook or iphone address book.
Excerpt: Use in a small office for scanning bills for offsite bookkeeper. Ease of use = 10/10 - just hit the blue button. Fast double-sided scanning is a huge plus. Multiple physical configurations of the scanner depending on how many sheets you have to scan--small device footprint fits easily on desk or shelf. Ability to scan directly to wifi is a plus; processing time for scans to iPad is slower than to desktop, but that's not the fault of the scanner.
Pros: Accurate Color, Easy To Set Up, Good Resolution, Works on Network
Excerpt: We recently have begun to file all our documents electronically and the old scanners we had just could not keep up. We bought these after reading the reviews and couldn't be happier!!!! They are very compact, fast and efficient. The software is very similar to Microsoft office (ribbons, task bars, etc.) so it was easy to get use to and are now up and running and can now keep up with the demands of the job. I LOVE It!!!
Pros: Accurate Color, Easy To Set Up, Excellent Software, Good Bit Depth, Good Resolution, Widely Compatible, Works on Network
Summary: good product, but most of the functionality is for a PC.... As a Mac user, I am tired of most business applications ignoring Macs. This comes with great software....if you have a PC. If you have a mac, you get basic software that eliminates most of the functions promised.
