Rated 4 out of 5 by from Receptionist The scanner is okay. It does it's job. However if you are frequently scanning 10+ documents, and want to send it directly to your computer - this isn't the machine for you.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So fast and easy!!! LOVE IT! It's exactly what I needed to scan mail to individuals in our office now that we are 100% work from home. It scans front and back on the first scan and the quality is great! And it is takes up very little of my desk, which is much smaller here at home.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from scanner à défilement très bon scanner à défilement. Il numérise vite et il ne prends pas de place. Dommage, le câble micro USB 3.0 n'est pas fournis avec l'appareil et il est difficile de se procurer le câble. Il faut le commander sur le net.
