Easily save paperless copies of a stack of docs, in popular file formats.

tubafor4828, Ebay

  • Summary: Likes: Easy set up for Windows XP. For us, the most important feature on this scanner is its ability to scan a large number of documents automatically and save them as graphic files. Several popular formats are available. No more scanning each page individually, with the time-consuming, repetitive operations of... 1. insert original, 2. wait for warmup, 3. initiate scan, 4. change result to black & white, 5. remove original..

Very Frustrating Piece of Office Equipment

Gabrielle, Amazon
12 March 2012
  • Summary: I have had the displeasure of working with this machine for over 4 years. Its incompetent feeder is only matched by the uselessness of the software it comes with. Save yourself the frustration and buy another scanner.

Best scanner for home office

Zuriel "kmbravo", Amazon
13 January 2012
  • Summary: I bought this scanner in 2006 and its 2012. It still works. I bought to use instead of a fax machine. With efax you have the option to email or fax the document from your computer. This is hands down the best office equipment I've ever bought. I use to be in the mortgage industry and would have to scan 200 pgs. This scanner saved me the time and frustration of a fax machine. Someone stated on here that they had error messages and it wouldn't save the scan.

Scanner

  • Summary: Pretty happy with it. I have not figured out how to do a pdf but ok to scan in jpeg. I think the instructions could be clearer on scanning in in the pdf format. I hope that it is capable of scanning in that format.

This is the best addition to my desk since my cross pen.

Joe Zao "Mother Sprockets Studio", Amazon
10 December 2010
  • Summary: This item is terrific! I have been using scanners since 1983 and this one is the nicest. I do not have a degree in Computer Science, my degree is in English and History. Read the directions and use the telephone once or twice with Xerox. After that, it fits. Resolution, JPG, fax, tiff, acrobat, and add-on applications are in a menu bar that pops up when the scanner is on.

ripped-off by seller

Nancy Soeurt, Amazon
22 July 2010
  • Summary: American Electronics Mart sold me a "refurbished" Xerox documate 510 scanner that did not work from the start. I spent two weeks trying to troubleshoot to find out whether the problem was on my end. Then, because I missed the return deadline, they would not take the scanner back. They would not agree to pay the costs to me to ship the scanner back to them. Now, I have wasted $250 on a worthless piece of junk sold to me by these crooks.

Worthless

Alicein Wonderland, Amazon
11 May 2010
  • Summary: Apparently my boss doesn't read reviews. I requested a new scanner after my ancient Visioneer 9450 started eating paper for breakfast. I wanted a new brand and found one at a different website for a decent price. Instead, this one was ordered. I figured since it wasn't the same brand it would be better. Until I found it is a Visioneer. I thought perhaps since it was newer it'd be better. I was wrong.

Great scanner, in spite of what you may read elsewhere

Matthew Petty, Amazon
17 September 2009
  • Summary: I purchased this scanner for home use after using an identical one at the office for several months. The main thing that I intend to use it for is document scanning-I don't really need to digitize photos or anything like that. I work in a field that tends to create LOTS of paper-it's a government job, and I think that's "nuff said." I've been working toward making my team's paper output significantly less.

Second 510 purchased in two years; both are excellent

S. Lundy "insurance agent", Amazon
13 September 2009
  • Summary: I bought my first Xerox DocuMate 510 in mid-2008. It works so well that when I wanted to replace an aging scanner for another office machine, I simply bought it again. I am running Win XP (paid extra not to get VISTA when I bought new machines) and find this scanner, combined with PaperPort 11, works beautifully.
