Summary: I have a need to scan documents for my business. I was using a all-in-one HP device, but it was really inadequate for my needs and occasionally froze the computer during a scan. I decided to look for a new scanner and found the Xerox DocuMate 515. This scanner scans at a much faster rate, about 15 pages per minute. Combined with the fax unit on my Dell computer I am able to easily scan and fax as well. This was just the right combination for my business.
Summary: This scanner is a pretty good bang for your buck. On average it scans 12ppm, which is close to the 15ppm it advertises. Like other reviewers have said, it is a better idea to download the driver off the Xerox website than install the outdated driver from the CD. The Paperport and OmniPage software can be a bit confusing at first, but is easily learned.
