OK

Karen Josephson, Amazon

  • Summary: You can't deskew it like some other scanners and often the page is angled although I fed it in straight. Clear picture with white background unlike another scanner I had which tinted the page. Easy to use.

  • Summary: Love this machine!! Gave it only 4 stars because it was a little tough getting started. Once I figured it out it has been working like a gem. Love the quality of the image.

Decent scanner

Robert B., Newegg
8 October 2013
  • Summary: When scanning duplex on a cable longer than 6' the scanner errors out and has to be reset every few pages. I've ran into this with other scanners as well so I probably has nothing to do with this model. Best to just use the included USB cable.
  • Pros: This is a decent scanner for the price. I've been using one for a couple years now with no real complaints when it comes to regular paper.
  • Cons: When scanning receipts or anything on that thin waxy type of paper the scanner sometimes just crumples them up.

  • Pros: Setup was quick and easy. Paper misfeeds are rare. Too bad this item became deactivated a week after I bought it. On the bright side I found a PlusTek machine that works just as well if not better than this one, at a lesser cost.
  • Cons: Deactivated.

Wonderful addition to any office!

Kristin, Amazon

  • Summary: I am often in need of scanning multiple documents, and the multi-sheet feeders of the various printers that I have had have fallen short--in a big way. They jam and you end up having to SLOWLY scan each document separately, flipping the docs over and having a separate file for each side/document. Tedious to say the least. This product, on the other hand, is SO FAST and reliable!

  • Summary: Comments about Visioneer Strobe 500 Sheetfed Scanner: I bought this for business and it works good. The only con I have is that I had to do some research to find out what some of the programmed buttons do. The research was easy. I would recommend this product. I love visioneer as I also have the Patriot 430....both are great for business. I like this one because I can Dock it or I can take it with me very easy.
  • Pros: Easy Setup, Excellent Software, Good Bit Depth, Good Resolution
