Summary: For 4 years, I've owned a Visioneer 7300 , 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.
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.
Summary: Ended up I only really needed to install the drivers and the one touch application. Very easy for people in a small office to operate. Replaced a very old copy machine, one less machine to keep going. The scanner just sits on top of a computer case, less desk space is needed.
Pros: 1. Works good 2. Lo-cost 3. Easy to use, one touch copy button
Cons: Software install a little vague and led to some confusion. Not the greatest quality but as good or better than my old copy machine was producing.
Good scanner for paper documents - not the greatest for photos

Summary: This is a great scanner for full-size paper documents. Not so great for photos if you want really good, clear, crisp photos. If you just want to slap a photo on the web or your digital picture frame, it's fine. It is very nicely made.
Summary: I bought this to replace the Visioneer OneTouch 9520 Photo scanner (95201D-WU) I bought for my second computer upgrade to Windows 7 and it works some what better on the W7 OS than the 9520 model did; not perfect but better..
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.
Summary: My first scanner was a Visioneer and I was very happy with it. This time around, the software didn't install properly, but I'm running Vista Home Premium, so it's very likely the problem has nothing to do with Visioneer.
