Rating and Reviews

ADS-4900W is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 9.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from User friendly [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This scanner has the capability to scan many documents at great speed. I scan a lot of documents daily working from home and this scanner has been able to keep up with the workload. It is very quick and easy. I used to use an app on my phone and have to email it to myself to get it on my computer and now with this there is no need and it’s so much easier. I am very happy with this scanner.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wow! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I've used this a few times and I am still amazed by its speed and efficiency. I love how small it is too. I was actually expecting it to be larger but it is easy to move and can fit right on my desk. It is light and easy to move also. It has a nice display screen. I love that I am able to send the documents right to my email and it show up within a minute.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for busy medical offices [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I have been using this Brother ADS-4900W scanner in our busy medical practice. With medical records being predominantly electronic these days, we often have a need to scan and upload a large volume of outside reports and records into our EMR software. This scanner is able to scan and upload a high volume of paper very quickly. Set up was’t too complicated or time consuming. The unit itself is compact and takes up a minimal amount of desk space and runs pretty quietly. There are lots of options to customize this scanner, including a workgroup feature, and the ability to scan from an IPhone or Android phone. There are also several scan-to options that include email and cloud capabilities. Even with the basic default settings, this machine is a real workhorse.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great scanner [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This scanner is very easy to use and fast. It’s a great solution to archive piles of documents. Is wireless and can also work without a pc by using a flash drive. You can also scan double sided documents. It also remove any blank documents should you put them in the pile by mistake.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for Work From Home [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I love this for my new at home office, it scans reports, referrals, and documents in a flash and uploads them right to the file you want so you can email them at ease. It's extremely more useful than a fax and in my opinion much quicker. Every office that deals with mounds of paperwork definitely would run smoother with one.

It does not take any time for the machine to scan the file and send it to the computer. The touch screen display makes using the scanner a breeze. Highly recommend!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE IT!! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I just received this a few days ago and I have already used it so much. I sometimes work from home, and I do a lot of emailing and scanning. Everything is paperless at my job. The brother desktop scanner is great, it scans a lot of paperwork at once and makes my work life at home so much easier. The set-up is very easy, it only took me about 10 minutes to set it up and get started. If you are thinking about buying this product, you should, you will not be disappointed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Extremely fast! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] The Brother professional desktop scanner is my favorite machine for the office. It came easy to set up with very clear and precise directions. The machine is small and light, allowing me to put it almost anywhere in my office. I was very surprised how simple it was to set up and connect to my devices. The Wi-Fi works extremely well and is easy to pair. The speed at which it scans is phenomenal! I downloaded the app on my phone and the quality of each page scanned is excellent. I love the curved paper tray, making it so the papers exiting do not fly out. The input tray easily adjust to sizes and can handle multiple pages fast! I’ve never seen a scanner work so fast and be so clear with the output. I’m very pleased and recommend this scanner to anyone looking to save time in the office. Excellent product!
