Summary: I bought two of these a year apart, so clearly I think this is the best scanner out there for the money, and I have been through many scanners in 20 years.
Pros: The scanner works so well I bought a second one, in part to get another license for the OCR software bundled with it, but also for use as a scanner.
Cons: It does not like dirty photocopies with loose toner on them. Easier to wipe the pages than wipe the sheetfeed works. The reflective scan makes me position stuff just so, with more effort than the usual flatbed.
Pros: This scanner does it all. I love the software that you can delete a page in the middle of a ten page PDF file and then save it, great feature. I've used a Scansnap 1300 and papers always get stuck and sometimes reads both sides when nothing is there. You will not mind giving up the space once you...
Cons: Lamp takes 45 sec at time to warm up if at idle for a while. Takes up some space but worth giving up after using it.
Summary: I finally downloaded ScanWiz 30 day trial and was able to do all my project within the 30 days. I will probably buy ScanWiz. It is a really good program for high speed scanning. You can move pages around if you make a mistake and delete pages before you save it to pdf.
Pros: Pretty reliable for High Speed scanning. 11 PPM at 300 DPI resolution. It jammed a couple of times on 500 pages but was easy to clear and continue. Very easy to set up.
Cons: Junk software disc would not even run on my computer Xerox sent me a second disc that didn't work either Luckily I was able do d/l the drivers from Xerox
Summary: What can I say, Fast processing of purchase, quick delivery and it arrived safe and in tact. Very simple set ip and software installation. Works better than I had hoped for. Very satisfied and would HIGHLY reccomend to anyone wanting a flatbed scanner.
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!
