Summary: I've reviewed and used many scanners over the years. Each is inevitably a compromise. However, the Strobe XP450 is by far the best that I've tried so far in its price range. It's fast. relatively resistant to jamming, easy to set up, and has less skewing than most automatic sheet feeders.
Summary: Thia is a great scanner. It is quiet, fast, and the document feeder works flawlessly. Be careful during installation. After installing Paperport, it continues on to install the driver without pause. The last screen tells you to connect the USB cable before selecting the 'finish' button.
Summary: I FIRST STARTED USING VISIONEER PRODUCTS IN 1996. THIS IS A CONTINUATION OF VISIONEER'S SUCCESSFUL ATTEMPTS TO PRODUCE LOW COST GOOD LOOKING SCANNERS THAT TAKE UP LITTLE ROOM AND ARE EASY TO USE. THIS MACHINE WORKS WONDERFULLY, AND IS CLEARLY COMPATIBLE WITH ADOBE AND WORD PERFECT.
Summary: I recommend this scanner without qualification. It is easy to use and fast. I can't believe I waited so long to buy a scanner for my office use. I may buy a second one for home and personal uses.
Summary: this is the most awesome scanner.. It is small & compact and so easy to use. For use in the office, when I have to scan contracts I can do it with such ease.. then I save it as a PDF and then can email to all concerned - FAST.
Summary: Prior to purchasing this scanner we were using a HP ScanJet 5550c. This had bad drivers and locked up on us when scanning into OmniPage or Adobe. We now use the Strobe XP which scans quickly and with very high B&W quality.
Does the job with semi-proferssional bundled software

Summary: Forget paying twice the price for a duplex scanner (e.g. Xerox Documate 252/262 or other) unless you know you will always be scanning both sides of a page. Integrated with Paperport (Delux 9 bundled or Pro 10 if you upgrade) this can very easily scan both sides.
