Ratings and Reviews

Customer reviews

DS620 is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 192.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Terrible New Interface The Software for this product used to be simple and elegant, which was perfect for scanning on the go. Now it's convoluted and unwieldy. Would've recommended this product heavily when I bought it. Would not recommend it now.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great little scanner. This scanner was easy to install and use, small enough to store away when not in use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Makes working at home so much easier! This scanner has made working at home so much easier! I recently discovered that there is option to create a multiple page PDF file scan which is a game changer! I like that it you can hook it up as needed and then its small enough to store in my desk drawer until I need it again. This is a game changer!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from apple does not support this portable scanner I spent three hours with brother support and he tried everything and we gave up. I spent an hour with apple help, same story. it scans but the document cannot be moved onto my imac desktop. all controls are dead.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Right Tool The scanner is small portable shareable and inexpensive. I like the way it allows continuous scanning with the adjustable 30 second interval allowed to get your next document inserted. I don't need to merge documents for what I am doing but I am sure I could create a multi page document if I needed to. Great for what I am doing, attaching Vendor invoices in quick books.
