Rating and Reviews

Customer reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brother DSmobile 720D mobile document scanner Great for productivity. Scanned (and shredded with my personal shredder) piles of paperwork very quickly. The PageManager software allows you to customise scanning buttons to enable scanning to applications and folders in a one-touch process both duplex and simplex.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from DS-720d Fantastic little scanner scans one or two sides of document as required. Good build quality and does what it should. Setting one button up, could be simpler, but not over difficult for most users
