Summary: I am not a fan of the plastic paper holder on the front. I simply removed it and let the landing zone be the surface of my desk. This is clearly one of my favorite computer components. I don't know what I would do without it.
Pros: This scanner has a very small footprint. I have owned this scanner for more than 4yrs and has been perfect for my needs. The scanner has 10 different scanning modes. I have configured them for high resolution document scanning ;w or w/o duplex; Copier; Scan to Fax. I was pleasantly surprised to s...
Cons: Calibration card. When you first install the printer the software will have you push through a calibration card. I get frustrated when I misplace it. A generic postcard will work. I understand the need but I found it frustrating anyway.

Cons: The software provided is so-so in my opinion, but it works.
Summary: Took me a few hours, but finally got it working with Windows 10. :D Windows still doesn't recognize the scan button on the scanner, but no big deal I just scan via the software. Everything's working great... so far. :)
