Summary: I'm an analyst for a big organization and my experience with the POS is another in the long line of frustrations. The current downloadable driver for Windows 8 will not even install on Windows 8.
Summary: I bought five of these to use at our doctor's office for scanning insurance and ID cards into our computer system. Initially installed on Windows XP 32bit. The software didn't work right and support gave me a link to a "power tools" fix that resolved some of the issues.
Pros: Small foot print on the desk. Quick, reasonably good quality scans. Most of the time. Good product for the price if you're using Windows XP.
Cons: Almost always blurry on one side. Doesn't scan entire page width in Win7 64bit no matter what.
Summary: This scanner is a huge disappointment. The quality of the scans are very poor. Can barely read things that were originally computer generated and printed. Will not take paper in. Paper gets stuck 95% of the time. have to shut down program constantly and reboot.
Two have worked well and have had a good life span

Summary: I have had four of these models. Two have worked well and have had a good life span. Two were trouble from the initial installation. Seems like you have a 50% chance of getting a working model. I am unhappily waiting for authorization to return my latest purchase.
Summary: I've had Visioneer products going back to the late 90's. Back then, they were black and white, and ran through the parallel port (remember those?) This latest in the evolution produces good images, quickly and is less prone to jam than any of it's predecessors.
Summary: This scanner is great for managing your home office paperwork and some pictures. Is not a great picture scanner but does an OK job for emailing stuff and Facebook type stuff. I would recommend a flatbed scanner for saving higher quality pictures. The software packaged with the scanner is top notch.
Really Fast But Install is Braindead, OK for Win7 64-bit

Summary: I'm keeping this scanner, only because it's lightning fast and works great with Twain Multiple Acquire. However, if you're an inexperienced and easily frustrated Windows user, you may end up throwing this against the wall before you get it working. I only thought about that, three different times.
