Brother ADS-2200 ADS-2700W document scanners for office use

Small on size, big on efficiency and built to last

When the output tray is conveniently folded back into the unit's body, this space-saving desktop scanner takes up similar width and depth dimensions to that of a single piece of A4 paper.

While compact in size, this 35ppm scanner is robust and reliable enough for daily business use thanks to its dependable passive roller system built to withstand thousands of scans per day.

Image Processing

Advanced Image Processing Features

 

The built-in range of powerful scanning tools intuitively prepare and clean scanned files, improving the quality of the scanned image for storing, editing, sharing and OCR (Optical Character Recognition) needs.

 

This reduces file sizes for sharing and generates clearly legible articles when reading. This means less time spent manually preparing and correcting documents and more time spent focusing on the core of your business.

Rating and Reviews

Customer reviews

ADS-2700W is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 92.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from MacOS Big Sur users beware! Do NOT consider buying the Brother ADS-2700W if you are working on macOS Big Sur and would like to have a WiFi connection to the scanner. It doesn't work won't work in future (stated by the Brother's tech support). Although I was checking whether a scanner works with a Mac OS when I was choosing the scanner to buy, I didn't come across explicit mentioning the ADS-2700W deficiency in supporting WiFi for the macOS Big Sur As an example, the Brother webpage for the ADS-2700W reads: ABOUT THE PRODUCT: "The ADS-2700W is compatible with Windows, Mac®; and Linux®; and TWAIN/SANE/WIA for PC drivers." Main Features: "Flexibility to integrate with your business processes/systems. Supports Windows®, Mac® and Linux® environments and TWAIN/SANE/WIA for PC drivers‡." It makes an impression of sneakiness and misleading advertising. The Brother Tech Support is mediocre: works by script and doesn't know the product. It took me at least an hour of conversation with two different representatives to find out that the scanner WiFi is not working with the Big Sur. Also I'd like to mention that the User Manual is not very helpful and, in my opinion, interface and set up looks like created 10 years ago and never revamped. I am quite disappointed because I purchased the ADS-2700W specifically because it had a wireless connection. Unfortunately it is not correct for the macOS Big Sur. Unfortunately it doesn't work with the macOS Big Sur.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product and Easy to Use Was able to hook it up and get started right away. Very easy to use and high quality. Works with all my software. Very good bargain.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super Convenience! Had a little trouble setting up the wireless connection but was finally successful. Love the convenience. Has helped eliminate a lot of the paper clutter around here. Love the two-sided scanning capability and the scan quality is pretty good. Would definitely recommend this product.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from I Think This One Was a Lemon I am a die-hard Brother product user. But my ADS-2700W had numerous issues: The worst being constant pausing during scanning. The pause would then time out and I had to start over. A project that should have taken only a few minutes ended up taking nearly an hour. I had to return it. And returning a Brother product was a first for me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Quality Scanner! Took some getting used to after using Xerox scanners for 15 years, but it was worth it! Duplex scanning is fantastic! Still getting to know it for B&W scanning, but I'm sure it will be good when I figure it all out!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Worked poorly until is stopped wotrking The scanner would not connect properley and take 2-3 tries to get it to work for about 18 months. After that it powers on then shuts down and no one at Brother could help.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Won't scan and attach to email This scanner will only attach to Microsoft outlook or Windows mail. I even contacted customer support to make sure I understood clearly that this brand new scanner couldn't perform this simple task of attaching a scan to the email software we use. Get the Epson ES-400 instead. It's DocCapture software is great.
