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. I recommend this machine to everyone who needs a fast scanner for their home or office. You will not be disappointed. There may be cheaper machines out there but once you use this, you will wonder how you got along without it.
Summary: When I got it, it look very nice and not very bulky like others I have seen. It was easy to set up in VISTA and I was scanning within minuts. I have tested the scanner to scan 26ppm. I have not found anything that I dislike on this scanner.
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: 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. IF YOU ARE USING THIS FOR YOUR LAW PRACTICE SPEND THE EXTRA DOUGH ON THE XP450. THE FEDERAL COURTS ARE GOING PAPERLESS AND THIS IS THE TOOL TO KEEP UP.
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. If you are not reading the screens, you could miss this and have to uninstall and reinstall which is messy. Other than that I highly recomment this.
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. It's also very compact and reliable. Highly recommended.
