Bad hardware _and_ software -- avoid this scanner!

AudioEngineer "Pablo", Amazon
2 weeks ago
  • Summary: I owned a 5590 until yesterday. It jammed for the last blankety-blank time, when I put a large dollar value check (8.5 x 11") through the document feeder and it jammed halfway through the duplex scan. I couldn't get the software to re-scan, I couldn't get the hardware to release the check on powerdown/up, it wouldn't release by manhandling. So I got out the Torx drivers and started disassembling the scanner.

Was a good scanner for a month since I bought it

  • Summary: Was a good scanner for a month since I bought it. Quit working recently. Had to load the latest driver dated August 19, 2014. Now works, but scans at slightly reduced size. 8.5 x 11 page scans to around 8.45 x 10.85" page - strange.

  • Summary: Seems to be very temperamental, sometimes will do a stack, sometimes not. In-box instructions are not helpful, wish there had been a more extensive operator's manual, in box AND online

Super fast, easy to use, best scanner

Z-Man, Amazon

  • Summary: I've been using this scanner w/my Mac for over 9 months mostly for scanning into PDF files and have never had a problem. The others i've tried were too small/flimsy, more expensive and took forever to scan. Great buy, really not a lot of choices out there for something like this.

GETS THE JOB DONE, BUT NEEDS SUPERVISION

EF Ottawa, Amazon
18 April 2014
  • Summary: I bought this scanner back in 2006 as my filing cabinets were bursting at the scenes. Eight years later, I am looking for a replacement. It got the job done, but not without causing its share of frustrations. Setting it up was a nightmare, as it took some fidgeting to get it to talk to my computer. As do most scanners, on occasion the ADF will pull two sheets together, but unlike the newer high end scanners it has no means of detecting this.

  • Summary: I'm really impressed by the many different options for scanning a document that this scanner provides. Its speed, the color quality and clarity of the text, document loading options, compatibility with Windows 7, and inexpensive cost have made me a fan!

Didn't even last a year

kezbeth, Office Depot
24 January 2014
  • Excerpt: As other consumers have noted, the flatbed part of this scanner works fine but is slow. The feeder works only when it wants to and that is only about half the time. It will also pretty much destroy some documents that get hung in the feeder and it chews them up. I use the feeder part the most for time saving but it is junk. Opt for a better scanner if you can afford it.. Don't waste your money on this one.
  • Pros: Easy to Use, Easy to Set Up
  • Cons: Pricey/Poor Value, Jams Easily, Slow
