Summary: I purchased the DocuMate 515 in the Summer of 2012 as a replacement for an old Panasonic that I had used for years, and literally worn out. I liked the DocuMate 515 because of its document feeder feature. It did a nice job. This week, I decided to buy a new desk top computer with Windows 8. The Xerox web site does not indicate any drivers for Windows 8. In my first call to their customer support I was told that whatever the latest drivers out there "should work".
Summary: This scanner is terrible. If it's turned off, turning it back on can take several tries. Occasionally papers that are scanned do not show up on the computer and the program has to be closed and re-started. Other times I have to "preview" a document before scanning it so it will appear. This scanner also has trouble inserting the documents from the feeder, so I have to monitor it. Waste of time, patience and money.
Summary: I bought this scanner in August 2011. I use it to get rid of my paper records. I scan usually 20 to 60 pages every week. As of this moment it's very reliable. I strongly recommend this product for this small-medium house use. Cheers!
Summary: THIS SCANNER NEVER WORKED. DOA. TRIED TO HAVE IT SERVICED ... NO HOPE. TECHNICIAN SAYS IT IS USELESS. THE DRIVERS FOR THE SCANNER INSTALL AND UNINSTALL BY THEMSELVES. SELLER WAS VERY CRUDE AND PROVIDED NO RELIEF. STAY AWAY FROM THIS SELLER ... AND FROM XEROX PRODUCTS. THEY ARE JUST NOT WORTH A ...
Summary: If you have window 7, this scanner may not work....despite the description stating that it does. It seems like a nice piece of hardware. This Documate 515 scanner has no phone or online technical support as Xerox states this is a discontinued model. They do offer paid support however. Also, the Paperport, Omniscan and Quickscan software are not compatible with Windows 7.
