      Difficult to use, clunky software!

      It only scans when connected to the PC by the USB wire. Impossible to figure out how to set up its wireless scanning as it requires some weird wireless connection, meaning you have to disconnect from your own wireless network and connect to this scanner's own network. After 10 days trying to figure out how to make it scan wireless, I have to give up! Too complex to connect it wireless! Too bad for a scanner that tries to sell its main feature as a "mobile" scanner! It comes with many software programs but most are useless or have outdated features. BR-Receipt requires you to set up template for each receipt or else it won't recognize text and number properly. That defeats the purpose of scanning receipts as you spend a lot more time to fumble around the setting receipt template matter! Nuance Paperport imposes a preset folder structure that is complicated to customize! What can I say, I've wasted so much time trying to make this scanner work, but it is far LESS capable than how it is advertised. I run out of patience! It goes back to a nearby Best Buy store as soon as the store opens today!

      Not exactly as advertised

      We are a chiropractic office so we need to scan insurance cards, ID's, etc. on patient's. We were in need of another duplexing scanner so when I saw the wireless advertised for this model I thought perfect now we can use it at any of the work stations and immediately the scanned document will be available. While this is technically true the part that is missing in the advertising and product information, even from Brother, is that the "wireless" scanning has to take place over a wireless connection between your computer and the scanner. It does not connect to your current wireless network. You have to disconnect from your current wireless network and connect to the scanner to use the wireless. Even if you connect to it the interface is clunky and slow. It works good as a wired scanner.

      Sufficient, could improve

      I wanted something to quickly scan documents at a site that didn't allow computer access, and this worked. It scans quickly, does double sided in one pass, stores as PDF (or JPEG if I wish). Problem: Although the documentation says it has a black&white mode, I cannot get it to switch to that mode without using the computer based driver, so in the field I only have grayscale and color. I'm scanning mostly B&W documents. All of them get scanned as a medium gray background, not white, so if I want to print any later I have to manually edit the gray levels and make the background white. Really time consuming. Wish there was a button to switch to B&W mode. I used the calibration sheet that came with it, but didn't make a difference. Looking to replace it.

      Handy scanner for the Road Warrior

      I purchased this scanner primarily to scan receipts for business expenses while on the road, as well as other occasional documents. I had used a Neat portable scanner in the past and this functions similarly with some notable improvements. Epson also has their own software similar to Neat to use the OCR capabilities and enter them into a spreadsheet. It also has a clear sleeve for scanning wrinkled receipts. This is handy but sometimes cumbersome. This scanner will allow you to scan without being tethered to your computer, which is a very handy feature. I have not fully loaded the SD card this way yet so I can't speak to the capacity for storage. Software download and setup was typical Brother - complete and thorough but not without a glitch. It worked properly on second try.

      We had one of these before, but needed to get a replacement because the on-board USB connector broke due to a pretty bad fall while the cable was attached. However, it worked really well for a portable scanner and was worth replacing. It handles duplex scans in BW, Greyscale, or color and can scan to an SD card if needed. It can easily be connected to a PC through a MicroUSB connection. The scanner claims to be wireless, but this is only if you connect your computer to the scanner as an access point. It doesn't mean that you can join the scanner to your network and use it that way. I've never tried this because it's easier just to scan to SD card or use the MicroUSB connection.

      We bought this for the sole purpose of the receipt scanner program. It comes with very minimal instructions on set up and how to scan in a book. It has nothing about how to use the actual progrmas it comes with. The rest of the manual is on a disk which took a long time to load and wasn’t very helpful. This can be used wirelessly if you can get it to connect to your wifi but I wasnt able to and couldnt get it resolved based on the manual. If you are computer savy or dont mind spending time figuring this put and have a business I would recommend this product.

      Good for Windows 10 but bad drivers for Mac OSX

      I really hoped this was a good solution with my MacBook Pro but failed miserably and could only get less than 1 out of 10 multi page scans to work on the Mac. Drivers were all current an scanner had direct connection to Mac. Not giving up I switched to Toshiba laptop using Window 10 and it has worked flawlessly. Longest color scan so far is 81 page legal size double sided with very good scan quality. Two thumbs up if you have Windows computer but two thumbs down if you need to use with Apple Mac, hence my mixed feelings and 3 stars. I am suspecting bad Mac driver issue. Good features - single pass duplex and good auto feed mechanism for 20 pound paper. Have not tried any thicker.

      This scanner is probably one of the best devices I've bought in some time. It is not only compact but it also allows me to scan in my documents to either an SD card or my computer with no fuss at all. I can scan via bluetooth or via USB. It also automatically scans color documents in color. I am a huge saver of documents which I typically scan and save to my Evernote account for easy access. The software in this scanner makes it so easy to scan and save to Evernote because it connects right to my account in two clicks. This scanner has allow me to not have to fuss with my big Cannon scanner just to save one piece of paper. GREAT scanner for sure and will HIGHLY RECOMMEND.

      A Portable Scanner : Brother DS-920DW
      While standalone flatbed and All-in-One devices can cope with many scanning tasks, sometimes you need a more specialised piece of equipment to handle this aspect of your document management needs.Full Review
