Rated 5 out of 5 by from So fast and easy I got my new scanner for my office at home since I work fully from home now. I was surprised at how compact it was as my last one was extremely bulky. I’m no tech wizard but this literally took me 2/3 minutes to set up and connect to my Wi-Fi. It’s so speedy and literally scans 35 intend a minute. It’s beyond simple to use and being an office manager I use it several times a day to scan receipts and documents. I love the fact that it’s so compact and takes ups such little space, it’s also great on energy usage. Anyone looking for a new scanner then I honestly can’t recommend this one enough

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Everything you need in one handy compact printer At first I was reluctant to get a new printer but with the demands growing I knew we had to make the plunge. It prints effortlessly,quiet and quickly. The feature to be able to insert a document into the printer and then it appears on your phone is just fantastic, no more wires or cables.. you quiet literally could take this to a conference and hook it up. The size is brilliant, not like those on the market. If your thinking about getting this printer.. I would 100% recommend it

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good for Business As a product tester who received the Brother ADS-4100 scanner for free, I am incredibly impressed with its high-performance and exceptional results. The scanner's fast scanning speed, automatic document feeder, and double-sided scanning option have made my scanning tasks much easier and more efficient. The high-resolution output is also impressive, and the user-friendly interface and easy-to-use software make it a breeze to operate. While the scanner's price point may be a concern for some, receiving it for free has allowed me to experience its numerous benefits without any financial burden. Overall, the Brother ADS-4100 is a valuable asset for any business that requires frequent and high-volume scanning.
