Customer Reviews

ADS-2600We is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 13.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Thoughtful wireless scanning I’ve had the ADS-2700we for almost 2 months and it works great for what I wanted it to do: Quick scanning of volumes of documents with easy document management. Let me explain: I used to scan my document to a USB with a multi-function printer. I’d then have to plug the USB into my computer and then open the documents and then move them into the appropriate folder. Needless to say with volumes of documents it wasn’t long before I gave up. With the scanner, it allows you to scan to network and there are 25 profiles. What this means is that I can create the scan settings and the folder to send the scan to (wirelessly) and when I scan the document, I simply select the profile and straight away the document is in the destined folder. So end result: do once and do other more important things.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fast and simple to use First sheet-feed scanner I have bought; never needed one previously as scanned limited quantity of documents. Using new software and wishing to archive electronically as much as possible now. Very impressed with the scan speed and intuitive features. Have used the USB connection, but may switch to wireless at some point. Good software included. Would recommend for a small business. It occupies no more space than a deskjet printer, and folds down if required when not in use to free up more desk space.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for a small company As an Accountant I have to keep all Invoices for 6 years and it is much more pace economical to keep them electronically. That means a lot of scanning needed. This scanner really a very good little helper - easy, fast and functional. Love it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Macht was er soll Ich habe den Scanner auf Grund des Preisleistungsverhältnisses gekauft. Hierbei war mir die Netzwerkschnittstelle und die Größe des Gerätes wichtig. Genutzt wird er für ein ContentManagement System um meinen anfallenden Papierkram bei zu kommen. Wie ich schon im Titel schrieb... er macht was er soll und das sehr gut.
