ADS1700W is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 125.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Acredito que seja um bom produto mas... Acredito que seja um bom produto à semelhança do ADS-1600W que eu comprei. Infelizmente é muito provável que com qualquer evolução de SW, seja o Windows ou MAC OS deixe de poder usar o Scanner, como me aconteceu com o Windows 11 e com o MAC OS Monterey, o que não se entende, quando a APP de captura de imagens funciona com ele mas a APP Brother iPrint&Scan não o reconhece na mesma plataforma OS !!! A minha classificação de 1* vai para o Software e para o Suporte

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Ok Scanner This scanner has a nice compact form factor and is easy to take on the go. I've scanned over 1,000 pages, and it's still going strong. My only complaint is the scans come out a bit tilted if you're feeding more than 5+ pages at a time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fast and easy to use The scanner performs better than I expected, it is small but fast and easy to use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Compact Scanner Really impressed with this scanner. Mostly paperless in my home office and this suits my needs perfectly. I scanned a large amount of documents over several days I held in files initially and it didn't miss a beat! The wizard for wireless set up did not work, I had to locate via IP address to connect wirelessly, however, was still straight forward and working well. It is compact, duplex scanning, fast with good quality scan. Highly recommend.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Macht fast alles Macht alle Aufgaben wie gefordert. Leider sind die Einzugsrollen bei sehr dünnen Seiten etwas "kräftig" dadurch verrutschen sie schnell oder werden nicht sauber eingezogen. Leider ist der Kaufpreis sehr hoch.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from KEEPS ON TICKING This machine (ADS-1700W) does a great job in a small package. It is more dependable, as far as holding its connection, than my larger, more expensive, Fujitsu scanners. I purchased it to use in travel: in my motorhome, client offices and even in my car. It has worked without fault. One of my best office purchases.
