Cheap plastic trays - hard to make documents clear
10 September 2012
Summary: Our firm has purchased many of these for our desks as we have gone paperless. Very difficult to adjust to get clear images, especially on mail that has been folded. Great scans when the paper has not been folded. The plastic output tray was very cheaply made. I have had mine for just a few months and regularly move the tray out of the way in its up position.
Summary: I am sorry to say this scanner was a big disappointment. I studied all the reviews and chose the i1120 over the Fujitsu ScanSnap S1500, mostly because the Kodak had the Twain driver and the Fujitsu did not. For my purposes that really did not matter anyway. It took a week and a level 3 tech to get the software to work properly. The paper guides are not tall enough so the paper stack frequently tilts to the side and makes it rough going thru the scanner.
Summary: I have an i1210 Kodak Scanner as well, which is a much more expensive scanner than this one, so keep that in mind as you read my review. I think this is a great machine if all you have to scan is plain paper. This means nothing can be attached to the paper (pictures, stickers, etc.) or it will not feed correctly in the scanner (put blatantly it eats your paper). There are only rollers in the middle and not on the edges of the paper as well, so it does not feed evenly.
Summary: I've had my Kodak ScanMate 1120 for 2 weeks or so now and I still have not been able to successfully use it. The operating instructions are exceptionally poor. The scans are going somewhere but I've yet to figure out where. Right now it's a useless piece of junk on by desk return. I've gone on the interenet a couple of times to try to figure it out. Hopefully I'll be successful at some point and will be a happy consumer - but I'm not at this point.
