    I used to own a portable scanner from a different manufacturer, it did within a few months, and I haven't even used it that often. So before I purchased the next one I did a lot of research, trying to find what would best fit my needs. I wanted one that would scan to SD card, well there not many around other than what I had before. Many portables scan to the cloud, which I do not want, especially since most want you to sign up for their own cloud service, none accepted the cloud service I already have.So I ended up purchasing this. It was extremely easy to set up, there is a huge manual on that CD that explains everything. I installed the driver and Button Manager only, I do not need all that fancy stuff receipt manager and things like that, I can manage my receipts without special software. Withing minutes I connected the USB cable and the scanner to my laptop and scanned my first test page. It automatically noticed that I already ha a folder "my scans" and that's where the scan landed. You have a choice in settings to scan as JPG or PDF, also if color, black/white or gray scale, you can adjust the area you want to scan. So it is all really easy. Quality of scan is just what I need, I would not scan high resolution photos with a little scanner like this. For me it is all about being able to scan documents when on the road with my laptop. It fits in my laptop case without making the bag bulky or heavy.

    Got this item to replace an HP 6200c flatbed because I wanted something that can handle larger that 11" length. My primary computer is Linux based and Brother has Linux drivers so that was a big plus. The scanner works fine under my Linux system but I'm not happy with the post scan processing options available with the several Linux applications I have tried ( Skanlite, Simple Scan, Xsane and Kooka). I installed the provided Windows software (Paperport SE v12) and while it does provide decent post processing options, the application periodically bombs and cries about not enough memory. I have 12GB on a 64 bit system and when I monitor task manager, memory never goes below 8 GB available. So pros and cons: Pros - Scanner is small and very portable (easy to move from 1 system to another, USB powered only, no need to move a power cord). Handles documents up to 32" in length Price was decent and I caught it on sale for another $10 off WAAAYYY faster than my HP 6200c Cons - The provided software sucks! This is really my biggest gripe about the product. If I could get it to function without bombing then I'd give it 4.0-4.5 rating The feed process is a little finicky but I think this is more user training on my part as the more I use it, it seems that I can load a document pretty easily.

    Good hardware, incompetent support software

    Posted

    I bought a Brother DSmobile 620 on 2017.05.13. Its driver doesn't deskew, but it feeds old, fragile newspaper notices without damaging them and it crops very nicely. The hardware has one notable shortage. The unit comes with a USB cable that has ferrite parasitic suppressors on it. It won't work with a cable that doesn't have them. The USB bus Rx/Tx interface has inadequate noise margins or hysteresis. The cable problem appears on several machine in the household. None of them has a similar problem with other outrigger equipment. The deal breaker is its image processing software. The dynamic range of grayscale images is inadequate. Dark areas are devoid of detail, the worst low-end washout I've seen in any of the several scanners I've owned. The solution is to scan the images in color and reduce them to grayscale with a third party tool, which produces results that are well within expectations. Unfortunately, the color images themselves reveal the shortcomings of the support software. Images are grossly oversaturated. The support software provides control of neither saturation nor chroma. The machine is useless for color imaging.

    Unexpectedly good performance!

    I have a very good Canon flat bed scanner, but in order to scan a multipage document on European-sized paper the bed was too short. Since the condition of the bound book the document was in required that I cut out the pages to scan separately it occurred to me that a sheetfed scanner might work, but I was worried about the quality of this scanner for the price. One gets what one pays for, but it turned out that this scanner did the job like a champ! It was good that the scanner comes with a transparent carrier because the paper I needed to scan was rather delicate. Of course the carrier is not required to scan things. This scanner is a valuable addition to my home office! To say that I am pleased with this its performance is to understate it.

    Perfect for limited space

    My computer desk at work has no extra space for a scanner so I needed a scanner that was small, provided a clear copy and easy to use. This scanner is better than I ever expected! Based on some of the reviews I had read I was expecting a slower scan time but it's fast and easy to use. Much better than the HP all in one I have at home. It's pretty much plug and play. The initial set up was a bit confusing since the instructions in the users manual showed a different picture than what came up on the CD. I just clicked on the first topic and clicked play and installation started right up. Due to it's small size I am able to store it when not in use. My documents are now easily scanned into an electronic format and so clear you would think they had been copied instead of scanned. The price was right and cheaper than some of the discount software sites. The IT guy at work was even impressed!

    The scanner is quick. You don't have to wait for it to warm up, preview scan, or anything. It just ingests the scanning material and processes it quickly. This satisfied one of the features I wanted, however, the other feature I was looking for was quality scans. I was hoping to scan in all my photos to keep them in digital format, it did that, but the quality wasn't fair. I ended up re-doing them all with a flatbed scanner instead. This product works great for quick scans that you may not be concerned about quality, such as signing a document and scanning it to be emailed somewhere.

    I tried two cheaper similar scanners and returned them both. They were not feeding the paper right so the scan either fails or comes out all crooked. I went with this Brother 620 after reading all great reviews and I was not disappointed. Perfect scans no matter what I threw at it. I scan mostly receipts and they all come out perfect not like the ones I returned which always cut off the top and bottom. If you are looking for a receipt scanner you can't go wrong with this one.

    I normally read these reviews with a grain of salt. This actually happened. Bought the scanner for scanning business cards and from what I understand a great software package in fact it was the second best rated product ( according to what I assumed was great reviews) Sorry to say but after 2 plus hours they still can't figure out what is wrong. Finally it was fixed (Brother first customer service error). Now it runs better than I expected. Gotta to say disappoint with the Customer care and it took a long time but the results are better than expected.
