Customer Reviews

DS-940DW is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 26.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Beautiful scanner, flakey and frustrating to use Conceptually this is a great product. It offers USB, SD card, and wireless scanning. However, the Brother DS-940W is infuriating to use. - The bundled application, though it looks pretty, is cumbersome to set up and use. Moreover, it is unusably buggy. With every click and every scan I am prompted multiple times to acknowledge "cannot connect to localhost". - The included cable is comically small such that it can only effectively be used in wireless mode. - In wireless mode, the scan button does not work, forcing you to click on the buggy application to initiate a scan defeating half the point of it being wireless. - The battery is effectively useless. Despite reading the documentation multiple times, I cannot tell if the battery LED is telling me it is charging, needs charging, or is just broken. - If the finicky and fragile sheet feed fails to grasp the first millimeter of paper, it errors out and requires needless cajoling to resume operation. It gets two stars instead of one because it looks nice. If you do not actually have to uses it, it is a nice scanner. It seems like a product that needed another year of testing and development but was sadly released to test on customers instead.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from USB Cable function doesn't work after 2 months All the functions are great except for the usb cable function. After two months it stopped. Now i use it through wifi and i have the problem of scanning multiple pages it doesn't save as one document but few.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Clunky difficult to set up poor performance. Clunky awful to use. No after sales service. I have other brother machine and I can't log into this machine to change the scanned output to a PDF. Extremely disappointed in this product

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Hardware software need some improved UI The quality of this scanner is brilliant along with the two sided scanner it made digitising my old documents and photos a breeze. The interface is a bit data and using on iOS device leaves a little to be desired but at the end of the days it’s functional and does want it is suppose to do.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product. I hesitated before buying this but I am so glad that I bought it. Compact, lightweight and easy to use. It is very quick to scan each page and the quality is excellent. Only negative is that it doesn’t have a carry bag.
