Summary: As a Professor and Writer, my desk is an avalanche of papers, documents, exams, lessons, and manuscripts, but now with this Documate Scanner my paper and space issues are RESOLVED ! I am very excited. I will actually be able to put some flowers on my desk now and bring back my books :) !
Summary: I have this model at work and although it works great and is easy to use, I do have one minor complaint. Whenever I scan documents the scanned document comes out a little grainy and there are small spots all over the page. Other than that, I am very pleased with this product. Like I mentioned, it is extremely easy to use and you can scan multiple documents in a flash.
Summary: I picked this scanner because it was mid line, not quite commercial grade but not a run of the mill home use either. Thus far it has worked as expected.
Pros: This scanner has cleared my filing cabinet and the mess of paper on my desk that was stacking up yet again. I'm one of those people who hates to throw receipts, bills etc away because I may need them at a later date. It was hard to balance that with not having a mess and boxes full of paper work. This scanner helped me copy and organize everything. I can see my desk now, this is a very helpful product!
Summary: I just received this scanner today and started loading to my iMac as the advertisement said it was capable of. No such thing! It is extremely annoying when a product is misrepresented. Now I have to make the decision to return this or do something I did not want to do and hook it up to a PC. DON'T BUY THIS FOR AN APPLE COMPUTER.
Summary: I will never, ever buy a Xerox or Visioneer scanner again. The center roller bit is garbage, everything will pull in and scan in crooked. Double feed detection is a joke, since it constantly pulls in multiple sheets. Save your money and buy something else. For the money I spent on this, I could have put it towards a better scanner. I have learned my lesson and will spend the big bucks to get a scanner that actually works.
Pros: This is a great little document scanner. It has easily handled everything I have tried on it so far. I tend to tear interesting articles out of magazines that I might want to keep or share with someone. So one of the things I wanted to do was try to use this scanner to scan these in for filing or sharing. It does an excellent job on magazine quality pages. It is pretty speedy and the input bin has worked well for me.
Cons: The only downside is the included Nuance software. It comes with a slightly older version which can be upgraded. This doesn't bother me, but I'm sure will matter to some. My issue with it is that the user interface just seems to be a bit poor. Despite this, the functionality is excellent and the OCR ability on even pretty complex page layouts works very well.
