Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great features [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I work from home and this has helped go paperless. It has a 80 page feeder. I have alot of paperwork and receipts. And this has been quick and easy to use to scan everything. I like that you can connect either via wired internet or wifi. The touchscreen is simple to use and guide thru.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is Great for my job [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I work in a healthcare field where there are a ton of documents to scan from doctors visits and notes from therapists. You can put a good 80 pages together for a scan or fax - and you can set up shortcuts with the screen on the front. I heard “document scanner” and didn’t think that it would be this advanced and helpful for my job!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love brother [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I just love Brother brand, they make the best printers and scanners. My work uses all Brother printers. This scanner is just magnificent, super easy to set up, took me less than 2 minutes to do. I connected mine to wifi and was able to print it without any issues, prints comes out in high quality and straight, settings are easy to navigate thanks to touchscreen and it has all of the options you need. Scan to server, scan to SMP, scan to email, and etc., You can control the settings through the scanner itself, through app or a brother software utility on your PC. It does come with all the cables that you need to get it to work without wifi but my suggestion would be if you buying this, use the wifi, you can scan it anywhere. Set up a printer, download the brother full package software, install it and bam you have a wonderful scanner. Highly recommend it for businesses and even just for everyday home use. Definitely worth a price
