Customer Reviews

DS-940DW is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 41.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Its ok Not as easy as it says to install. Created some issues. Having to spend a LOT of time figuring out how to get the receipts to download into separate files -- as it claims

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great piece of kit. So easy and practical as a peripatetic member of school staff.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Scanner Returned because it did not convert to a M/S word document. Needed to convert to Adobe and then to Word, I would re write the document faster!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simple and easy I don't think a scanner could be made any easier to use and it's perfect for documents. Everybody that sees me use it is impressed and several of my co-workers have purchased one because of mine. Two features that have room for improvement: 1. The default name is long, too long, and only the final digits are different. The names all look the same in File Explorer because there's not enough room (no, the name is too long). 2. Sometimes I get the exclamation point and don't know why. Turning the scanner off and on usually clears that.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Terrible Software The DS-940DW is a lot faster than the 620 and 720 I owned, but the software for the DS-920DW wastes a lot more time the speed of scanning can make up for it. It allows to add some buttons (called Workflow) to scan to specific locations but for some strange reason, it doesn't have a 'continuous' scanning option, which it has for the direct 'Scan' button. So for multiple pages, you can only use the default 'Scan' button where only the last location is saved. There is also no way to backup/save the configuration. So if you use the scanner on a different computer you have to configure all the workflow buttons again. Therefore the scanner is fast, but super slow to scan many documents because of all the stuffing around with the software.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Disappointing Portable Scanner As a top model should be easier to get it working and regularly shows there's an issue that can rarely figure out what the problem is. Consistent difficulty with getting it to scan and once it is active there's an excessive delay before it will scan. Then trying to find it and place it elsewhere is not that friendly. So, a bit disappointed it is not as user friendly as I had hoped.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent scanner with awesome features! This scanner was perfect for what I needed. I work for the City and they do not allow you to install software and hardware in their network. You have to have approval from IT which is never allowed. This scanner is fast and quiet. I scanned 14 timesheets in 40 seconds. It can scan in .pdf and .jpeg formats. It scans in black and white or color. You do not need a computer because this scanner can save to a micro SD card, or to a computer via USB or Wifi. The software it came with is not the greatest and the PDF software is like a trial limited version. The instructions are terrible. If you are turning it on, short press the power button for a second. If you are turning it off, long press the power button and hold for at least 6 seconds before you let go. Otherwise it will drive you crazy with lights flashing and nothing happening. This scanner doesn't take up very much room on your desk. One thing you cannot do is scan an open book like a flat bed scanner. The page being scanned has to pass through the scanner, not unless you rip the page out of the book. It cannot read a 128 GB card. The card I have in mine is 8GB and is more than enough. You can transfer your files into your computer using the scanner as an external drive. The price is very affordable for the features it has. Do not forget to buy a protective case to protect your investment. I carry this scanner where ever I go.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Nice design, but! Do not buy this device if expecting to use with a tablet. It will not charge with included cord into any separate USB plug. I like the compact design and other features but don't have any other means in which to charge as direct by the manufacture.
