4 out of 5 eggsSolid home scanner

Pros: Good quality images and easy to operate. packs away small for storage when not in use.

The included PaperPort SE software does an excellent job managing scanned PDFs merging and splitting pages from documents. it works just as well with saved PDFs from other sources so scans of dead tree documents can be kept along side computer generated e-statements and even merged into one document when needed.

Cons: being a smaller unit the paper guides are small and so more susceptible to skewing/jamming if the guides are not set right or if you try to scan overly wrinkled items, if your documents are wrinkled (or chewed, bad dog!) make sure to feed those ones one at a time.

Other Thoughts: I use a larger and much costlier scanner at work and this little scanner compares well for relatively small tasks (250-1000 documents a year)

So if you are looking to get the papers cluttering your desk under control and get rid of a backlog of old records that you can't just throw out this is an excellent scanner and the included software works well to organize your records as you scan

2 out of 5 eggsNot very good

Pros: Excellent software package. Compact unit. Twain drivers. USB or wireless operation. Scans front and back of page simultaneously.

Cons: Slow scanning, jams frequently, skews paper, loses WiFi connection, jams consistently when fed over 5 pages.

Other Thoughts: Too much hassle taking care of jams and very slow scanning. No advantage over flat bed scanner if it had to be watched over for every scan job for jams and for other feed problems. I returned the scanner after 4 days.
Very disappointing, since my other Brother equipment are very good.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome scanner

Pros: * Relatively easy to set up
* Requires no connection to a computer and no software / drivers
* Fast
* Supports direct upload to cloud storage (Google drive, etc.)

Cons: * Web interface does not support all functionality
* LCD interface a little clumsy and small

Other Thoughts: This scanner was small, relatively easy to setup and required no software / drivers or direct attachment to the computer.
Once I got it connected to my wi-fi, setting it up to do email and upload to cloud was relatively simple.
It was surprisingly fast at scanning sheets and with the direct upload to cloud and Google drive support it made it trivial to use without special software.
Everyone in the household can use it without worrying about which computers / devices need it.
Brother is doing very innovative designs, I now own 2 laser printers and this scanner and all are amazing!
