Summary: I just received this scanner yesterday but I have already scanned over 200 pictures. It is a little bit difficult to figure out, but it works great so far. I still have a lot to learn about it but the quality of pictures I scanned was good except if you have a lot of snow on bottom or sky on top it crops it out, haven't figured that out yet. I wish it came with a booklet that I could read to understand it a little more.
Pros: Fast scanner, pretty reliable feed - the only jam (so far) was trying to batch feed 20 sheets of paper that had originally been folded in quarters. They fed fine as single sheets. Otherwise - I've batch fed 50 sheets with ragged edges from being in files for years with no problems.
Cons: Software - PaperPort would scan three sheets then report that it had lost communication with the scanner. And I would frequently get a PaperPort Not Responding message from Windows 7. The software is SE (Special Edition) and Nuance provides zero support for it. Don't waste your time installing it. I bought another OCR/PDF package and it hasn't lost communication with the scanner and will OCR 20 sides in the time it took PaperPort to do 6 sides.
