Rated 4 out of 5 by from Kleine krachtpatser die uitblinkt in gemak Tot voor kort kon ik documenten scannen op de professionele afdelingsscanner op mijn werk. Sindsdien getracht documenten te scannen met mijn smartphone maar dat gaf gehannes met uitwisselen van bestanden, plus dat scans niet voldoende scherp waren. Na uitgebreide orientatie gekozen voor deze Brother ADS-4500W. Reden voor mijn keuze: compacte afmetingen, in één keer dubbelzijdig scannen, stapel documenten in één keer scannen, en netwerk-aansluiting. Daarmee kan ik tenminste niet alleen vanaf mijn desktop maar ook vanaf mijn laptop scannen zonder eerst kabeltjes te hoeven wisselen. Nou, en de Brother stelt niet teleur, wat een gaaf ding! Hij is inderdaad klein en compact maar groots in functionaliteit. Hij scant een brief van zeg 3 dubbelzijdige kantjes A4 in no-time. Sjoefff, sjoefff, sjoefff en de klus is geklaard. De bijgeleverde Brother iPrint&Scan software maakt het supereenvoudig en na wat aanpassen van de standaard-instellingen worden PDF documenten met een gigantische compressie van meer dan 90% opgeslagen. Zonder verlies aan al te veel kwaliteit. HelemaaI mooi is om scans als searchable PDF's op te slaan waardoor je snel in PDF's kunt zoeken. Ik wil niet veel zeggen, maar dit dingetje kan zich meten met scanners van wereldmerken. Ik kan niet genoeg de nadruk op eenvoud van bediening leggen omdat dat er juist voor zorgt dat je ook meer gaat scannen waardoor zienderogen papier uit je (thuis)kantoor verdwijnt. Heb je brieven, offertes, rapporten, verslagen, enz. éénmaal digitaal, dan betaald het gemak aan doorsturen, vermenigvuldigen, zoeken, en opslag zich dubbel en dwars uit. Eén puntje van kritiek: als je een stapel documenten scant moet je wel de stapel eerst "uitwaaieren" zodat de vellen niet aan elkaar kleven. Anders pakt de scanner 2 blaadjes tegelijk en mis je wat. Aan de andere kant kun je heel makkelijk vellen "bijscannen" die dan aan de al gescande documenten worden toegevoegd. Ik ben er heel blij mee en kan iedereen die van papier af wil en van gemak houdt deze Brother ADS-4500W van harte aanbevelen.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from All Good Things Come in Small Packages Wow, wow, wow! The old saying, 'all good things come in small packages' is perfect to describe the Brother ADS-4500w. After a little stumble at the beginning where the material to be scanned would not go into the feeder properly, I realised it was user error as I hadn't removed the piece of tape inside the scanner, oops! Connecting the scanner and downloading the software and drivers was a doddle. I am reasonably tech savvy but am convinced that even if I wasn't, it would have been a relatively simple process. I tried it with the USB cable and also in the Wi-Fi setting. The settings are simple and to the point. I only tried feeding in a sheet at a time and it fed through extremely quickly and with ease. I even tried a piece of printed embossed card and again, no problemo. The scan quality is highly impressive and as you can see from the photo picks up on the colours and textures beautifully. This is a serious piece of kit in a compact little package and is definitely going to be my favourite toy to play with. Gone are the days when you spend hours scanning a sheet in at a time and now I genuinely can't wait to scan in all the paperwork that is waiting for me. It is also going to be fantastic for me to scan in all the work projects not to mention the old photos which hold so much sentimental value. Thank you Brother and a very warm welcome to my family.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Piece of Kit....For My Needs Let me start by saying this is a great bit of kit! For years I have been using my small all in one printer to do my scanning, taking forever to setup and scan a single sheet....but this is lightning fast! You feed your document in (like you would feed blank paper on a printer) and within a second I have a great quality copy straight on my phone! Now for me, this is all I need it for so its great, however I did have issues trying to scan to email. I work in IT so like to think I know what im doing but couldn’t find a way to get it to scan to email without it throwing a 'server timeout' error. I also don't think the instructions that came in the box offer any help with this type of scanning setup too. It hasnt really affected how I would use this though, but I will look into it further!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Incredibly fast and very compact scanner Woooow! I'm so satisfied with this scanner. It is very compact in size which is a great advantage in small offices. The whole setting process is easy, quick and hassle free. I didn't expect that a scanner is able to scan so fast in such a good quality. I don't have to take photo of each customer's bill separately. Now I just put a pile of receipts in the scanner and it scans it quickly and effortlessly. I was able to declutter the drawer with my daughters' school stuff and scan it all smoothly to my desktop. I definitely recommend Brother ADS-4500W to everyone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I wish I had owned this scanner sooner! I was pleasantly surprised to find that the Brother ASD 4500W scanner was compact. This meant that I would have no problem finding a home for it in my office. The set up really could not have been any simpler. I downloaded the app to my mobile phone, scanned the barcode in the set-up guide and followed the instructions. Less than 10 minutes later I was scanning my first document. The only part of the set up that I found tricky was typing my Wi-Fi password on the small screen of the scanner. In future I will use a stylus instead of my chubby fingers! I scanned documents in different sizes and in paper thicknesses. All scanned super quickly, and the resultant scanner quality was excellent. It was super easy to scan multiple pages and the scanner will accept up to 60 pages at a time in the feeder, (in less than 2 minutes). It is possible to add more pages to the saved file for documents of over 60 pages. Unlike previous scanners I’ve used, all pages came out straight and there were no paper jams. There are options to save documents as jpeg images or as pdfs to a variety of different locations such as mobile phone, USB, ethernet or W-Fi. It can also scan directly onto a shared drive or even to e-mail. One of the reasons I wanted a scanner like this was to digitise photographs. I was sceptical about how well the scanner would perform in terms of image quality and efficiency, but I need not have worried as both surpassed my expectations. Although I did not time the speed of scanning photographs, it was even quicker than scanning A4 documents. On my next use decided to scan documents onto a USB and then also to my PC. After downloading the drivers, the process was incredibly simple. Super simple to set up, so far I’ve set up a shortcut for scanning photos onto USB , single sided in colour with a resolution of 600dpi and a shortcut for scanning documents in black and white with a resolution of 200dpi and omitting any blank pages. I discovered that if scanning photos directly onto a mobile phone it is only possible to select a maximum resolution of 300dpi. It is just so convenient to be able to scan without the need for a PC and the image quality at 300psi still looked great, so I’m likely to continue to scan from the app on my phone and reserve scanning to my PC for special photos where I want higher resolution. I would wholeheartedly recommend this scanner to anyone. It just makes life so much easier.
