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!
