Summary: It does what it's supposed to do, and does it very well. I especially like the low power requirements. Instead of using one of those bulky power transformers, and constantly drawing amperage, it runs off of the USB cable. The only down side was the software that came with it. If all you need is to scan pages for faxing, I recommend not installing anything. Otherwise, you'll get buried by an avalanche of programming that will enslave your system.
Summary: Scans single page, small items well. If more than 1 page, it often hesitates long enough that the 2nd page doesn't take. Also, when I scan intermittently, it shuts off & won't turn back on with one push of the button- I have to fiddle with it, plug-in or unplug, etc before it starts again.
Summary: This is 2014. I'm pretty sure there are scanners out there that are, I don't know, user friendly? When you can't find where your scanned documents are going and you can't scan multiple pages at once, It's really not worth all the hair you will end up pulling out of your own head. Don't buy this. Spare yourself the baldness.
Summary: Returned this scanner because it made scanning pictures and documents a hassle! It wouldn't give you the option to rename the file until it put it in its own assigned folder that you had to search for.. No auto cropping option; every preview scan must be manually cropped. Never cared for the PaperPort software even in Windows XP. Just way too finicky for simple use IMO.
Excerpt: Great for keeping reciepts oraganized for weekly expence reports. I am able to make a weekly file and add reciepts daily for organization and to ensure I receive a full travel expence reimbursment. I give it 4 stars due to it's difficulty to install and learn the functions.
