Summary: I bought it a while ago to use with a Vista laptop and recently moved it to a Windows 8 Desktop. The new drivers are available on the manufacturer's website. The unit is kind of slow and kind of noisy, but the scan quality is quite good. I don't use it heavily, so I'm OK with it. It meets my needs well at a budget price.
AWESOME scanner! Easy to use, is quick and quiet. Amazing quality.

Summary: This scanner arrived with a CD to install the drivers for it, it wasn't even necessary to use it. It loaded right up on my daughter's Win XP. It's faster than other scanners we've had, takes up much less room and is QUIETER too. Scanned items show up perfectly. This is a quality product!!!
Summary: If you are looking for a cheap, decent-quality flatbed scanner that will do most straightforward tasks, this is what you want. It's slim, rests well on most surfaces, and has a hinge to allow for bulkier objects such as books. It has five buttons (customizable) and comes with slightly more than mediocre software. The resolution on this scanner is rather good.
Summary: This seems to be the only scanner that will work with 64 bit Vista OS. We bought an HP, which is the computer brand, but it didn't work. All we had to do with this was download drivers for 64 bit and we were back in business. The software is easy to use, but that's the only type of scanner I've ever used. Highly recommend for 64 bit Windows Vista OS.
Summary: I love the basic premise of this scanner: small enough to bring with you and scan everywhere, no additional electric - works off the computer power. However I felt that it was a complicated installation - too many steps, when I expected plug & play technology. That being said, it works easily enough, and scans quickly enough, for my purposes on the road.
Summary: I had a HP scanner that lasted less than a year and it went clang clang clang and quit scanning. That HP one was a BRAND NEW ONE. I'm sick of buying new scanners so frequently so I decided to take a chance on this beauty. Not only does it NOT REQUIRE A PLUG and runs off of USB entirely, it scans much better than my plug-in (and USB plug too) HP scanner. The installation was a snap and it works great. I have Windows 7 with a 64 bit system so yes I highly recommend it.
Summary: I understand that Visioneer never claimed it would work with Linux. That's why I am giving it 3 stars, after my limited use of it with Windows. Will not plug and play in ubuntu 10.10. Spent time overriding "Visioneer OneTouch 7300" in /etc/sane.d/gt68xx.conf. Pulled off Cis3r5b1.fw from an Windows installation. With xsane running as root, scanner would detect. However scanned images have a red hue. You may have to tweak the afe values in gt68xx conf.
Summary: For 4 years, I've owned a Visioneer 7300 VISIONEER 73007DWU SCANNER VISIONEER 7300 1200 DPI , which is the immediate predecessor to the 7400. The 7400 has essentially the same specs and appearance as the 7300. The difference? Only the 7400 supports Vista. Pro: it works OK in light duty home service- I use it mostly for imaging receipts and so on for TurboTax and Quicken.
Summary: I purchases this scanner for work to replace a Visioneer 7300 that I had been using. There are two of us that often needed to scan in documentation and that Visioneer 7300 had served us well. However, when we were upgraded to Windows 7 machines, we found out the 7300 was not compatible and hence my search for a new machine.
