Slows down MSIE in Vista

Jared K., Newegg
13 February 2008
  • Summary: It grabs the paper really fast so you have to be a bit nimble in feeding it or else it will go in at an angle. The learning curve for me was about the fifth time I fed paper into it.
  • Pros: Fast and great at duplex. Works with Vista x64 (not completely - see below). Scans photographs (says it doesn't but I didn't have a problem. May depend on thickness). Seems to have no problems with my old statements that were z-folded in envelopes. I've already scanned 700 pages without a single ...
  • Cons: Executes seven different applications upon login to Windows (with full install). I have my doubts that they're all necessary as soon as you log into Windows. One of the applications requires UAC elevation on start-up every time you log in (I think it's just checking for a new version online). Als...

Love it

Drs. &., Newegg
5 June 2007
  • Summary: This thing is solidly built. BUY FROM NEWEGG! Xerox does NOT honor its warranty if you buy from an auction site, even if it's brand new... found that out the hard way.
  • Pros: fast, accurate scans, good software bundle
  • Cons: It doesn't come with auto-sort software that uses OCR to see dates, prices, tax, etc. like some cheaper scanners come with. It also doesn't scan small receipts.

I love it!

Belinda Z., Newegg
18 April 2007
  • Summary: When I first called Xerox regarding a Vista driver they were kind of whiny about Microsoft and I thought that was uncalled for. It's not as if they didn't know it was coming.
  • Pros: I am the IT person in my department and I think this is my favorite piece of equipment and I buy a lot of equipment. I bought one for my boss and she loves it too. In fact we weren't going to go over to Vista until they got a driver for it. Well they did and it works great with Vista.
  • Cons: It does grab the paper pretty quickly and I have to re-position my documants at times.

Lori Sheaffer, Amazon
26 November 2006
  • Summary: Our office uses the Documate to scan patient's charts, explanations of benefits & other misc. paper communications. We successfully scan over 800 pcs daily w/out any problems. The Documate is fast, reliable and priced @ a good value.

How to foul (rather) fool the scanner

Philip Ng, Amazon
11 September 2006
  • Summary: The scanner works spectacularly; if you know how to foul/fool the end paper sensor. After spending 2 hours looking at all of the moving parts (there's only 5 or so of them) If you crazy glue a staple to prevent the bottommost switch so that it can't return all the way to the top of the support, thus...
