ADS-2800W is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 35.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Browser Interface makes it easy to program. Excellent scanner, quick to set-up, browser interface is almost intuitive.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from ADS-2800W The main reason I bought this scanner was with the cheaper scanners I had the scans on a bit of an angle, and with ADS-2800W that didn’t change much probably a bit better but still not professional for the amount of money I’ve paid I was expecting to be more reliable but unfortunately it’s not the case. I wouldn’t recommend this product

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Facile à utiliser Très facile à installer et d’utilisation pratique… Un petit bémol, en cas de plantage il faut redémarrer l’ordinateur

Rated 5 out of 5 by from ADS-2800W should be in every SME. Nothing performs as well as this device at this price point. Very versatile and remarkably compact.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Efficace Après plus de 6mois d’utilisation, je suis ravi de cet achat, ce scanner est ultra efficace sur les courriers assez long

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Spart mir kostbare Lebenszeit... Mein Steuerberater stellt alles auf digital um. Und ich kann viel Geld sparen, wenn ich alle Dokumente schon fertig eingescannt in seinen Online-Speicher hochlade. Mein alter Einzugscanner war dafür allerdings total ungeeignet, da ich hier viel nacharbeiten musste, das Gerät langsam war und die Daten per SD-Karte in den Rechner übertragen werden mussten. Das alles gehört nun dank dem ADS2800W der Vergangenheit an... Nach der Einrichtung und dem Anlegen von einem "Workflow" ist das Scannen und Ablegen jetzt mit genau einem einzigen Mausklick erledigt. Der Scanner kümmert sich um den Rest: * Erkennung der Mediengröße: Ob A4, A5 oder Thermobon: Alle Bilder werden perfekt zugeschnitten. * Entfernen von Hintergrundrauschen: Auf meinem alten Scanner war die Papiermaserung immer deutlich zu sehen und musste händisch mit einem Grafikprogramm durch Tontrennung entfernt werden. Der Brother macht das vollautomatisch! * Vorder- und Rückseite wird in einem Durchgang gescannt = halbe Arbeit und doppelte Geschwindigkeit. * Die Kantenverstärkung macht die Schrift gerade des Kleingedruckten deutlich besser zu lesen. * Leicht schräg eingezogene Dokumente werden automatisch senkrecht ausgerichtet * Große Bilder bei minimalen Dateigrößen: Im Schnitt ist eine 300 dpi A4 Seite nur 400k klein, aber gestochen scharf. Traumhaft, wie schnell und angenehm das Arbeiten mit diesem Dokumentenscanner abläuft. Zugegeben, das ist schon ein Luxusprodukt, aber jeder, der viel Zeit mit dem umständlichen Digitalisieren von Medien zubringen muss, sollte sich diesen Scanner gönnen!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product! Great product - works well and to specifications and easy to setup. The capabilities to scan to email and web locations without the need for a computer to be turned on makes this an even better product. The ability to have shortcuts then makes it easy to use and flexible
