Fast High Quality Scans. Small Footprint. Well Built. Long Life.

Summary: I purchased Two (2) of these scanners sometime around 2001 or 2002. I started using them with Windows 98 SE and later with Windows XP Pro SP1, then SP2 and now SP3. I use them both with Adobe Photoshop 7.01 (Full Version) which I purchased in the late 90's.
Summary: The Visioneer 8700 USB Scanner is no longer manufactured. It does everything I want a scanner to do. I wanted a back-up to my present scanner without having to go to the trouble of having to reconfigure another model scanner.
Summary: I just bought this scanner the middle of February, 2003. I liked it's resolution and ease of use. It now will not scan. I tried to contact the manufacturer since it is under a 1 year warranty. They do not have a toll free number or email address.
Summary: I bought this scanner new at Best Buy for 69 dollars after first buying (and returning!) two HP scanners. While I found the HP scanners to be slow, noisy, bulky things, this one was a pleasant surprise!
Summary: I was worried after reading some of the reviews that this scanner would have conflicts with Windows XP but it seems to work perfectly fine! I haven't had any problems with it and I love the copy/print option that makes it just like a copier!
Summary: I got one of these for Optical Character Recognition (OCR). The box advertises OCR abilities and there is an 'OCR' button on the scanner body. Setup was easy and the scanner speed seemed very good. It looks like a fairly nice scanner for photos..
Summary: I think this scanner works great! I am using WinXP pro and I had the scanner working in minutes. I use twain to scan and have not used the one button features yet, I may never use them as the twain interface is more to my liking.
