The Canon Image Formula DR-M160 scanner has exceeded my expectations.

Still, it will chew through it in time, and if you're like me you'll use this as a good excuse to buy a new computer.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
Updated Dec 17, 2013:

I love this scanner - after about 2 years of fairly regular use, it's still working as well as it did when it was brand new.

##########################

I'm a strong believer in a paperless office, both for security and ease of access, and have used the Fujitsu ScanSnap S510 for a number of years. I have absolutely loved that scanner, which is without doubt, the best business investment I've made. It has the smallest footprint ever, is very zippy, and can do duplex scans, with blank page removal. It even came with a great software package - a PDF manager (ScanSnap Organizer) and Adobe Acrobat Standard.

Downsides with the S510? It is easy to double feed pages, requiring a restart of the scan job from the top. Furthermore, you are restricted to the ScanSnap Manager software for all scanning - TWAIN/ISIS compatible applications cannot directly interface with it.

The DR-M160 is a whole different beast inside and out.

The ScanSnap's compact foldability and genial two tone colors are replaced by a more professional finish. The ScanSnap's rollers are simply no comparison to the heavy duty ones that reside within the DR-M160. The DR-M160's speed is to be seen to be believed - both for the physical scan as well as for the PDF conversion. And, all of this in a workstation footprint that's only slightly larger than that of the ScanSnap!

Note that this comparison was purely for illustrative purposes as the ScanSnap cost me about half of what the DR-M160 retails for, so the two devices are in entirely different leagues.

Installation:

1. Mechanical setup took a couple of minutes. Slot in the document feed tray, and remove a couple of protective stays, and it's good to go.

PROS:
This scanner is blazing fast. At 300 dpi is creates a very high quality image in an amazingly short time.

CONS:
It has 2 major problems.

1. One is that the outbound tray isn't smooth. It has groves that allow it to slide in and fold up. The problem with that is when paper is being discharged from the machine it fairly regularly get caught up in the groves, sometimes jamming the scanner.

2. The paper sitting in the inbound tray bumps up a little as the next page feeds in. This only becomes a problem when you get to the second to the last page, as that feeds in it bumps the last page making the scanner think that it is done with all the pages. So you end up having to scan again and append that to the first scan. The only solution is in the settings you can have it not stop scanning until you push the stop button on the front of the machine. While this fixes the problem it is a pain to have to do that every time if you scan frequently.

FINAL THOUGHTS:

It is a good scanner no doubt but for the amount of money it costs it should really be designed a little better. Also I can't speak to the software that comes with it, we use a third party DMS so we don't use any of the software that comes with it except the TWAIN drivers which seem to work well as our 3rd party software doesn't have any issues communicating with the scanner like we've had with other scanners (snapScan I'm looking at you)

EDIT: I've been using this scanner pretty heavily for about 7 months. I need to retract one of my cons. Number 1 about the outbound tray. It turns or that it is just REALLY sensitive about being completely extended. It if it just 1 millimeter off it tends to jam up. If it is extended all the way it doesn't jam at all. Number 2 is still a real problem though.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
This scanner is not your average, run-of-the-mill consumer grade device, and its performance shows. Unfortunately, the software that is bundled with it keeps it from being a five-star item.

I installed the TWAIN device driver as well as the eCopy PDF Pro Office software. I figured I would start with that and then go for the Kofax Virtual Rescan software, which appears to be for OCR (optical character recognition) and large volume document scanning, later. Given the experience I had with the PDF software, perhaps I should have either stopped with the TWAIN driver, or just skipped it for the Kofax software, but more on that later.

The scanner is fast! After installing the TWAIN device driver and the scanning interface software, I was able to scan a document using Adobe Acrobat Pro. When I hit the scan button, I thought I did something wrong, because the page fed through the scanner so quickly, I figured it just ejected the page. A moment later, Acrobat is showing me both sides of the document that was scanned, in color, and the text was auto-recognized as text from within Acrobat! Even after several weeks of use, I'm still amazed by how fast this scanner does its job, but for the price point, I guess that should be a given.

The scanning interface software that allows for programming the buttons on the scanner and for automating scanning tasks took a little to get configured, but once I became familiar with the options, I found quite a bit of power and flexibility available. Customizable presets can be chosen for the default process, and those presets control most of the scanning parameters, as well as how documents and images are saved.
