Summary: The software adds additional programs to every directory as it saves. You cannot stop it from happening - .ini and .ptn and .ptn2 files. I understand in the next version of the software you can turn it off but they won't approve it for the Documate (according to tech support at Nuance).
Summary: I bought this to replace our fax machine and get ALL the paper off my desk. I love it! It cannot scan a thick stack of pages, but can take 20 pages without grabbing two at a time. The Paperport software that comes with it is easy to use and has made life much easier.
Summary: I wish I'd known that it was one-sided scanning (simplex) as opposed to two (duplex). I would have paid just $20 more and gotten the duplex scanner, the Documate 152. Also, the software is very Windows 3.11, and of course Xerox doesn't make their drivers compatible with the Mac, so I had to install...
Summary: I looked at lots of scanners before picking the Xerox Documate. I was a bit concerned because it cost quite a bit less than the others; however, I have been pleasantly surprised. The included PaperPort software works great. I was much more impressed with it than I usually am with bundled software.
Summary: The Xerox Documate 150 Scanner works great, with all I use it for which is daily all day long, had very little issues with it, overall a 9 rating out of 10. The only problem with the set up was the disc that came with the product.
Summary: I bought this xerox printer with high hopes. However, the images are pathetic, the scanner doesn't work most of the time. Save your money. I have now had 2 different xerox scanners and both are junk!
