Poorly App
The app is so poorly and disappointing. Every time you turn it back on it takes a long time to connect back on. I don’t recommend this product if you planning just to scanned through wifi. Very disappointed

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

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!

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.

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.

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.

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.

Only charges connected to PC. Partial Mac support
Not too bad but a little over priced. Battery won’t charge with charger. Charges only when plugged in to computer. The Mac software has less options than the Windows software. It thinks there’s a jam when no paper is picked up or paper length is longer than expected. Have to open and close the scanner to clear the jam and it it’s so hard to open it feels like it’s going to break. Really needs a way to clear the jam without opening the scanner, see charging status from software and webadmin and the software options should all be in one place.

Great Product for Price!
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I received this product for free from Brother in exchange for my honest opinion/review of the product. I FOUND THE PRODUCT TO BE EASY TO STORE AND QUITE COMPACT FOR THE TYPES OF TASKS IT CAN PERFORM. IT WAS EASY TO USE AND DIDN`T TAKE UP MUCH SPACE IN MY OFFICE OR KITCHEN COUNTER, WHERE I INITIALLY PUT IT TOGETHER. I also enjoyed the fact that I can take it places and small enough to fit in a backpack or large bag.I liked that it was portable and the set up pamphlet was easy to follow. Not a lot of parts, just a USB cable and a calibration tool.The pricing was well priced given that it is wireless and compact. The scans themselves were crisp and of good quality.The gadget is also easily connects to laptops and PCs, which make it easy to share!One of my favorite things about the scanner are the adjustments to resolution and customization tools for PDFs such as adding a password to lock files. Ultimately, I think the only downside to the product is the lack of automatic feed requiring you to hand feed documents but honestly, for being a compact, mobile product- it isn`t a problem for me. I enjoyed scanning and customizing my files using the easy to see buttons and no nonsense design. Not cheap, but not expensive, but for how well it performs, good value!
