Rated 5 out of 5 by from DS-640 I have worked in IT for 20 years so have used a lot of hardware. I was a bit vary of this scanner at first thinking back to the hand held scanners. I was amazed at how easy everything was . Install the software and away you go so easy. Its never let me down as yet and the quality of scan is perfect

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Compact scanner. The unit is compact and portable so it is great for when we are travelling. We have used it and it is slow and not suitable for multiple documents but great for what we need.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Cubre casi todas mis necesidades Pues decantarme por el Brother DS-640 comenzó con la necesidad de compra de una impresora con escáner pero debido a mis circunstancias necesitaba algo compacto y ligero que ofreciera gran movilidad. En este aspecto mi DS-640 cumple por completo mis expectativas. Respecto a los drivers, bajo Win10 son perfectamente funcionales, incluso con software de terceros mas allá del que ofrece Brother. Hay dos "casi" en mi valoración personal donde la DS-640 no cumple del todo, vendrían a ser las siguientes : El [[Software de impresión]] es sin duda uno de sus problemas. Hablamos de una suite de impresión que ocupa +1GB de espacio cosa que veo abusivo si tengo en cuenta mis circunstancias de movilidad donde un PC-portátil vendría a ser la herramienta principal y éstos no se caracterizan por su "espacio" sino por la falta del mismo. Otro de mis problemas con mi DS-640 es que [[no recoge todo formato de papel en cuanto a grosor]]. Por supuesto, puede ser por limitaciones del producto (o por propia ignorancia). Al dispositivo le resulta *casi* imposible recoger papeles del grosor de un ticket, necesitas colocar un folio con mas grosor que sirva de base al primero en el proceso de escaneo. A pesar de lo anterior, el dispositivo tiene sus bondades, sus funciones principales son mas que suficientes para suplir mis necesidades en el proceso de escaneo, su formato lo convierte en un producto muy versátil y su rapidez al trabajar lo hacen perfecto para el reto " de viajar con documentos físicos". Gracias y un saludo!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not impressed with the instructions I set this up on my Mac. I used the scanner on an A4 doc and then could not find the JPEG on my computer. There no instructions as to where to place scanned docs (e.g on the Desktop or in a folder). The form below assumes I purchased this. Well, I did not because this was a gift and I DID not purchase it.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Good hardware but where's the software help I have just purchased one. Plugged it in & got it working. But now on an hour+ mission to try to find software that will collectively group multiple scans of a document into one PDF - Suggest "Suggested Downloads" on your Drivers page for this product, pointing customers to software to help use your product. Not hard, get an intern to add links to software.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A great product. I move about a lot with my work and cannot carry all the papers I need everywhere I go. This scanner is light compact, efficient and versatile - just what I needed to organise my life!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Brother DSmobile DS-640 [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I received this product for free from Brother in exchange for my honest opinion/review of the product. I`m very impressed with the quality of this scanner for its size. Lugging around a huge printer-scanner in my car was starting to wear on me. Now I just slip it into my backpack along with my laptop. It is perfect for my needs. Portable and only required a USB .Load the drivers before you plug in the USB device and it`s ready to go.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from GREAT EASY TO USE TOOL [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I received this product for free from Brother in exchange for my honest opinion/review of the product. This scanner is super easy to set up and also easy to use. I have used it to scan some recent papers - and it worked great for those. I also used it to scan a bunch of old photos and documents. This was a little trickier, but the results were satisfactory.This is an easy to transport, portable scanner. A good addition to my office

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Brother mobile scanner DS-640 [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I received this product for free from Brother in exchange for my honest opinion/review of the product. I enjoyed the DS-640. I wished I had gotten the mobile friendly version because I would have loved to try it out on my phone. I like the design. It is simple, compact, and travels well. Connecting the scanner to the laptop is a breeze. The user interface is easy to work with. I like that it has 4 save/share features (save to PC, scan to cloud service, open in application, and attach to email. The scans were super crisp as well. I am not a very computer savvy person and this product was easy to set up and use. I like the product very much and look forward to using it

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Mobile Doc Scanner [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I received this product for free from Brother in exchange for my honest opinion/review of the product. I thought that this was an awesome product. It is super compact and lightweight so I can literally throw it inside my bag and go! It is extremely easy to use once you get it downloaded properly. I have to be honest in saying that im I thought I would be able to use it from my mobile device but I realized that there is a different mobile that you have to have to use the app. But all in all is very convenient loose to using a large scanner and having to make sure it is slight to scan properly. I love how this product can easily adjust to the document size whether it`s a card or a full sheet of paper and it aligns perfect so no need to rescan! I find this item very helpful for scanning invoice for my business so I can stay more organized and the best thing is I can take it everywhere with me!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pleasantly Surprised [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I received this product for free from Brother in exchange for my honest opinion/review of the product. The first thing I noticed about the scanner was how small it was! It can easily fit in a backpack. While it was a bit of a struggle to install the drivers (through my own fault, not Brothers), once everything was up and running, I was pleasantly surprised by the print speed and quality, especially considering its size. My scanned pages came out clean and sharp, even though the paper I scanned initially was worn and wrinkled. I couldn`t be happier.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Review for Snanner [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I received this product for free from Brother in exchange for my honest opinion/review of the product. Good scanner- it scans pretty fast and both, in color and black/white. Its compact and lightweight and since its USB Powered, it doesn`t require wall outlets, which helped make my workplace tidier and clutter free. I`ve scanned receipts, business cards, identification cards, invoices, photographs, and more in the last few weeks and they`ve all come out great. Also the multi page scanning is fairly easy and the Brightness and Contrast can be adjusted to optimize the scans. So far, product has served its purpose very well and I am very satisfied with the scanner.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Mobile Scanner [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I received this product for free from Brother in exchange for my honest opinion/review of the product. I was looking for a mobile scanner. I usually use my phone or work fax/printer for scanning purposes. Overall, I liked this product. Pros:Compact- It was small, relatively speaking. It`s about the size of a compact umbrella so it could fit in a tote bag. Mobile- You can travel with it in a tote or laptop bag. Only a usb cord is needed. Weighs a pound or two.Quality- The images uploaded were good quality/resolution.Operation- Very simple to use. Didn`t require much directions.Durability- It is sturdy and solid. I would take alot of force to break it.Cons:Connectivity- There was no wifi or bluetooth connection. It would be great to have this option and make the scanning completely mobile. I would love to scan and upload wireless as an option.Installation- I had some difficulty with installing the software initially. I believe the software needed to simplified to only one step. A simple install once screen. The application prompted to install other programs once I got to the home screen of the brother application. The space it took up on computer was a bit much. I would deter people from installing it on multiple devices which defeats the purpose of being mobile.Memory- It lacked a slot for a micro sd card or any memory to be stored.Operation- It didn`t have a pop out tab to guide papers through.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from PREMIUM QUALITY SCANNER WITH GREAT PORTABILITY [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I received this product for free from Brother in exchange for my honest opinion/review of the product. I found the scanner provided to me free of charge as a reviewer. I found the scanner quite reliable and helpful for my small business needs for scanning. I was quite impressed with the portability factor of this item and the many quality functions as it has in solving my problems when it comes to daily scanning needs, whether they be high volume on low. I highly recommend this product and I found it greatly efficient to be able to pool my data and needs into one small portability scanner such as this one. I think this will be great addition to my os all business and we will be using it quite often.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Scanner Review. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I received this product for free from Brother in exchange for my honest opinion/review of the product. For a portable scanner, it gets the job done. I scanned a bunch of things with this scanner. It has a little slot that moves to help guide the thing that you are scanning. It works great on papers or pictures that are thicker than usual. I tried to scan receipts and it had a hard time cause the receipts are very thin. One thing it does well is auto crop the thing you scanned. Overall it`s pretty good, super easy to set up took me like 10 mins. If you`re on the go or space is limited this thing is looking to get.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easy and compact [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I received this product for free from Brother in exchange for my honest opinion/review of the product. After using the scanner for the past week I am very happy with it. It is a lot more compact than having a printer/scanner combo which is nice when I have to travel to worksites. The instructions are easy to follow and it`s size is very nice. I also like that it was very easy to set up with both my personal apple computer and my work PC, making if a great multifunction device.
