Good Scanner

Brian A., Newegg
21 November 2011
  • 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...
  • Pros: 1. Scans duplex 2. Scans quickly 3. Quality scans 4. Twain drivers
  • Cons: 1. Not made for more than about 10 page documents (you can add as they scan) 2. A few jams, but I never had a sheet fed scanner that didn't (even the $4000 ones)

Good machine

Kevin S., Newegg
8 February 2011
  • 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.
  • Pros: I bought this at a deep discount from Newegg in June of 2010 and have scanned more than a thousand pages. It has taken a number of ragged-edged, creased-and-unfolded and old-and-brittle pages without complaint, and I can't blame it for the couple it shredded. Depending on paper thickness, the ADF...
  • 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.

Just what I wanted

J. Smart, Amazon
13 June 2010
  • 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.

Very fast and a great size

Shala Kerrigan, Amazon
13 June 2010
  • 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.
