Pro: it works OK in light duty home service- I use it mostly for imaging receipts and so on for TurboTax and Quicken. But there are 2 Cons:
1) closing Quicken always generates an error from the Visioneer software complaining about qw.exe - it's benign except for having to close the dialog box each time
2) Visioneer has no plans to update the 7300 driver to spport Vista- will the 7400 be similarly stranded in 2 years or so when MS replaces Vista?
This scanner is a nice piece of hardware - it is powered off the USB bus, meaning no extra cords, and the buttons on it's face do exactly what you want them to do. It was very easy to setup, install, and use, and if you need to move it around, having just the single USB cord to take with you is nicer than dealing with a power cord and data cable.
The included software is reasonably easy to use and the scanner's actual output is fantastic for my use (mostly high resolution scans of black and white documents).
The negatives? The USB port on the scanner is in an awkward location - instead of it being at the rear, near the hinge, it is up front. This means that much of the cord length is wasted in laying along side the body of the scanner itself. I believe this was done because the "brains" of the scanner is near the buttons, so that's why the USB cable plugs in there. The only other part I found annoying was the registration process online for the software. It seemed cumbersome and not at all intuitive. If you can figure it out without having to clink around, well you're a better man than I!
Overall a good scanner for the money and is serving me well!
The software is easy to use, but that's the only type of scanner I've ever used. Highly recommend for 64 bit Windows Vista OS.
Like the Visioneer OneTouch 9520 Photo scanner (95201D-WU), I still get random error messages during the preview scan and I still can not get it to crop the image automatically like the Scanner and Camera Wizard did in XP Pro.
I also bought this model for my first Windows 7 upgrade to replace the 7300 model that was not compatible and it seems to work fine on it (but I don't do a whole lot of scanning on it like I do my work computer)..
It is a space saver compared to the bulky 9520 model..
Overall, it will suffice for now.
