Easily save paperless copies of a stack of docs, in popular file formats.
8 September 2012
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.
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.
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.
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.

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.
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.
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.
Great scanner, in spite of what you may read elsewhere

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.
Second 510 purchased in two years; both are excellent

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,...
