it was great at first but after using it so many times

kris, Amazon
15 December 2015
  • Summary: it was great at first but after using it so many times, I get random shut downs, blue screen of death and some other error messages. I only like that fact it does a good job scanning in color. As time goes by it does show its wear. Not meant for long term use or for large amounts of scanning.

  • Summary: We have one of these at my office and the product works great. The problem is it runs a version of Windows XP for an OS and Kodak support told me "the business manager did confirm extended support is available from Microsoft for XP but Kodak does not have any plans to purchase this extended support...

It may be because of bad mechanical design

Aung W. Tin, Amazon

  • Summary: This scanner makes noticeable rather irritating loud motor/fan noise in my quiet office room. The front paper tray/cover came broke loose so the cover cannot be shut closed. It may be because of bad mechanical design. Scan copy quality is alright. Scan speed it fast.

Nice when it works, but unreliable

Silly Fellow, Amazon
8 July 2011
  • Summary: We purchased this machine in May 2013 to use in our business office. When finally configured (the administration portal is extremely frustrating and can ONLY be done through a PC, i.e., you cannot configure this machine directly using its screen), the machine works very nicely.

Don't Buy! Device won't boot up and there's no way to re-install software!

Paul, Amazon
22 June 2011
  • Summary: It was a great product while it worked but unfortunately it suddenly stopped working after about 14 months. Currently the device won't boot up properly and there is no way to re-install the OS/software seemingly because it is "embedded".

Pricy machine that constantly break

T. Le, Amazon
28 April 2010
  • Summary: This machine have to be the worst I ever have to support and recommend. Kodak's older model, the one 100s, is a true work horse, where the 500s is a constant break and place. It have a high failure rate lasting only 2 months and have to replace it 3 times.

A nice evolution from Scan Station 100

small business guy, Amazon
31 October 2009
  • Summary: We have used a Scan Station 100 Plus for a few years, and when we wanted an additional unit ordered the Scan Station 500 (ss500) instead. A very preliminary review, but what you are buying here is a world class paper feeder, attached to a pc with a touch screen, that does OCR and outputs ready to...

Fast and flexible... with some limitations

Kevin Christy "kkchristy", Amazon

  • Summary: This unit is a fast operator, and with the ability to scan once and do any combination of thumb drive storage, local USB hard drive storage, network folder storage, email, fax, print, and FTP, what's not to like? The OCR logic is fantastic, enabling us to create text-searchable PDFs.

  • Excerpt: Долго искал сканер для документа оборота . Главным критерием был возможность сканирования документов разного размера и формата в автоматическом режиме . Хочется сказать , что не так просто найти сканер с такими возможностями !
  • Pros: Качество сканирования !
  • Cons: Запара в настройке

Goede vervanging/ snelle levering

Yerc, CentralPoint
27 March 2013
  • Excerpt: Product was ter vervanging van de bestaande Kodak. Nadeel hij is flink dieper en staat daarom niet handig in de toch altijd kleine repro ruimte. De geleiders laten zich net even te soepel verschuiven. Touch-scherm oogt niet scherp maar voldoet wel.
