Summary: This scanner is not for scanning hundreds of pages daily. It's a good personal scanner. I have emptied a file cabinet of old documents at the house. I liked it enough to order me one at work (and another for my boss) BTW - I don't use the software for managing my documents, I mostly scan to Acrobat...
Summary: The Visioneer Strobe 500 is a remarkable little sheet-fed scanner,which comes with ScanSoft PaperPort 11 and ScanSoft OmniPage 15 as well as custom OneTouch 4.0 software and both TWAIN and WIA (Windows-specific) drivers.
Summary: Although this isn't the scanner's fault, be warned that although the scanning speed of 15 sheets per minute (B&W, 300 dpi) seems accurate, depending on the speed of your computer it will take a lot longer to actually digitize documents.

Cons: My only complaint would be that it isn't what it isn't -- a larger, office-model scanner that would accept 100 sheets or more at a time so that I wouldn't have to constantly feed it and could do something else while it scanned.
Summary: Just what I wanted. I was looking for a small (footprint) scanner for my desk. I manage a lot of paper in my work, e.g. notes from meetings, articles from newspapers/journals, receipts, etc. Wanted to file electronically and have the convenience of doing at my desk.
Summary: This scanner is very fast, with very few mis-feeds. It has plenty of features and functions. One good one is "Transfer to storage" where your scans are automatically stored in any folder you like on your computer.
Summary: Most of my document scanning at this point is antique books that are falling apart, old photographs and old recipe cards. This scanner set up very quickly and the instructions are clear and easy to follow.
