Rated 2 out of 5 by from Disappointing in most ways I was recommended this scanner as I wanted a sheet feeder scanner which worked with Mac OSX, and could scan over ethernet. Setup was easy, although the touchscreen is slow and kinda cumbersome to use, and in hindsight I would have preferred simple button interface. You can create shortcuts to certain features using the touchscreen interface, but even accessing a shortcut sends you through various confirmation dialogs, its all very poorly thought out. The scanner supports scanning directly to Dropbox and various other hosted services, which is a nice feature but mostly I wanted to scan direct to my computer. Here is where my problems started. The Control Center software provided for Mac OSX, clearly has not been updated in many years. The interface is klunky and very unintuitive. Im a software engineer myself, and it took me over an hour to figure out even basic usage of the desktop software. The scanner does a good job of scanning some documents especially color, but others (particularly black and white text documents originating from a laser printer), sometimes result in a very blurry PDF. Maybe its the paper type, I don't know, but no software settings would resolve this. I also hoped there would be a way to scan 50 pages, and output 50 separate PDF's. Apparently this is not possible, and the only option is to produce 1 50-page PDF and then use various third party tools to split it up. I could of course feed each page in manually and create a PDF for each one, but then this defeats the purpose of having a sheet fed scanner. I have no complaints about the speed of the scanner, which is actually impressive. But overall I'm dissatisfied with my purchase, and would not recommend it. I have resorted to going back to my laser/flatbed scanner for small sets of documents, as its much less hassle. Perhaps if you are on Windows, and want to scan large amounts of documents into a single PDF, it may suit your needs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brother scanner ADS 2600W Very easy to set up. Simple to use. Had one issue with bottom of document being missed on scan which was easily resolved with standard set up change with aid of Brother helpline to identify problem. Considerably cheaper than other wireless models.
