Rated 1 out of 5 by from Does Not Work after One use I bought this scanner in hopes of scanning in my PDF files. I used it for one day, unplugged it stored it safely away. Next day it does not work. I uninstalled the software and reloaded and still does not work. Waste of my money

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Product- User Friendly Scanner I received this product for free from Brother in exchange for my honest opinion/review of the product. The Duplex Compact Mobile Document Scanner is SUPER!! The set up requires only three steps; plugging in the provided UBS cable, downloading the driver online, and scanning your documents. The scanner is sleek and modern looking, is lightweight and easy to carry, and the scans are legible and sharp. The scanner can easily fit into your laptop bag and is easy on the go. I would highly recommend this product. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Duplex Compact Mobile Document Scanner I received this product for free from Brother in exchange for my honest opinion/review of the product. The scanner was smaller than imagined. However, it was easy to set up. Used it to scan a few documents to work and no issues.Took less than 10 minutes to set up and once I connected the scanner to my laptop via USB, I received an alert and the rest was history. It`s a simple device that doesn`t take up a lot of space and the last thing needed on my desk is more clutter.I`m curious how much the scanner cost?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brother Scanner I received this product for free from Brother in exchange for my honest opinion/review of the product. Item: Brother DS-740DPhysical: I really enjoyed the physical size the the brother scanner. It`s small and powerful, which gives me the space to store it anywhere and the power to do what I need to do. It is also pretty light which gives me the opportunity to carry it in my bag when I am on the go meeting with my students and clients. Assembly: This scanner was simple to put together. I really enjoyed the fact that I didn`t have to plug anything into the wall, but everything was powered by the micro USB cord that was connected to the computer. The connectivity to connect the scanner to my phone was also an easy process. I could see older populations possibly having a challenge with a product due to their lack of experience with modern day technology. Connivence: I believe this product is extremely convenient for a person like me. As a person who is always on the go working with clients being mobile is something that is necessary. With the size and assembly listed earlier I believe this product is extremely convenient. I would even argue with the easy set up that it`ll be easy to not only scan to my personal computer, but also scan to others if necessary. Lastly the email cloud feature is so convenient Storage: I liked the fact that the scanner has an opportunity for users to save items multiple ways. Not only can you scan items to a phone or computer, one can also utilize a micro SD. Though I would more prone to utilize the phone or computer feature, I believe the micro SD being there is extremely convent. Battery Life: The battery life was just as sated in the manual.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to use and very efficient. I received this product for free from Brother in exchange for my honest opinion/review of the product. I actually really like this scanner. It was very easy to install and easy to use, especially for people like me who are constantly on the go and don`t always have the option of being by a printer/scanner. I travel a lot with my job so this was perfect and worked great while I was on the go. I`ve used scanners in the past that weren`t as easy or durable and the paper would constantly get caught on the wires but I didn`t have this problem here.
