From the Manufacturer
The Xerox DocuMate 152 Color Document Scanner scans up to 18 pages per minute (ppm) and 36 images per minute (ipm), includes a 50-page automatic document feeder, and has the ability to automatically scan documents in searchable PDF files. The Xerox DocuMate 152 is designed specifically for desktop use and incorporates Visioneer OneTouch technology for eliminating multiple steps in sending scanned documents to predetermined applications or devices.
The DocuMate 152 offers a professional software bundle that includes Nuance PaperPort and OmniPage Pro. It also comes with an advanced TWAIN driver to enable communication with advanced electronic content management (ECM) software applications.
Scanning at the Touch of a Button
Do you want to do more with the paper on your desk? Would you like to copy it, collate it, file it, search it, mail it and make it disappear? How about if you could do it all with just one touch? The DocuMate 152 is powered by Visioneer OneTouch technology to scan documents using nine preset buttons for your most common destinations, yet they are completely configurable. This enables your document to be scanned with the proper settings for resolution, colour, duplex, auto-crop, autostraighten, file format and then delivered to virtually any application, folder or device--at the touch of a button.
Visioneer OneTouch is an easy to use utility that connects the buttons on the DocuMate scanner with a powerful set of scanner settings to greatly improve the efficiency of your workflow--so that with one touch, the document is scanned automatically to email, or Word, or your printer, or simply a file folder. In addition to scanning direct to all popular destinations, Visioneer OneTouch also links the DocuMate 152 with industry-leading document management software, such as Microsoft SharePoint and Xerox DocuWare--forming an easy to use workflow from paper to a selected destination. A Software Development Kit (SDK) is also available which provides the ability to develop specific links and integrate them into the Visioneer OneTouch control panel quickly and easily.
Perfect Scans from Imperfect Originals
Visioneer OneTouch with Kofax VRS (VirtualReScan) technology is integrated into the scanner driver so that you get perfect scans from imperfect originals. VRS also eliminates the need to rescan documents through automatic cropping, straightening, brightness control and edge clean-up. All this is integrated into Visioneer OneTouch so your entire scanning requirements are achieved at the touch of a button.
Most new users in document imaging are not scanner experts, so simplified, point-and-click solutions that deliver high quality images and integration with business applications are essential.
Kofax VRS Technology
The Xerox DocuMate 152 integrates Kofax VRSTM image enhancement technology into the OneTouch scanning process. VRS is the goldstandard in image improvement technology. Imperfect originals are automatically turned into perfect scans that are easier to read for the human eye and the computer's eye. OCR results are dramatically improved, file size is decreased and scans look as clear as the originals. And every page is custom corrected automatically so you can batch together clean, laser quality documents with your imperfect originals. The results are amazing.
Nuance OmniPage Pro
Provides a precise OCR and layout retention solution, quickly turning scanned documents into editable, formatted text. The text can then be used in virtually any word processing, desktop publishing or web publishing program.
Text Searchable PDFs
Transform volumes of paper or photos into organized digital files that can be quickly found, used and shared. In PDF format, the user can instantly search documents for keywords or phrases. This provides additional archival benefits beyond traditional storage, and the widely accepted PDF format lets everyone view and print documents--on any computer.
Millions of professionals rely on PaperPort to save time and money by transforming paper documents into searchable digital documents. PaperPort combines the efficiency of document management, the convenience of superbly scanned documents and the power of creating PDF files, to bring a new level of operational proficiency to you organization.

Top Customer Reviews
For all the good things about this scanner, be sure to read the PC Magazine review (July 2006).
Here, I wanted to mention a few downsides that were not evident from the Xerox product specifications or the PC Mag review.
1) Pages per Minute - the Xerox specs state 15 pages per minute for color duplex (both sides) scan at 150 dpi. Realistically, for anything with images/pictures, 150dpi is too low, so I end up scanning at 400dpi (typically magazine pages). At this setting, the scanner only scans 1.6 pages per minute! It seems that part of the slowness is related to the driver/software, as about 40% of the scan time is due to the driver/software "catching up" with the physical scanner.
2) ADF (Automatic Document Feeder) Capacity - the Xerox specs state the feeder holds 50 pages. This may be true, however, it is not possible to use this capacity, due to what I consider to be a major software flaw. The driver software actually times out after a certain amount of processing time. I haven't found any way to change this setting (nor any mention of it in the documentation). So, if I put in any more than about 8 pages in the ADF and perform a color duplex scan at 400dpi, the scan job will complete on the hardware, and then the software will actually time out and erase the entire scan job! You may get a few more pages by reducing dpi or going black and white. But beware, that you could find yourself having to load only 8 pages at a time.
3) Image lines - the scanner lamp seems to be affected by dust/paper "lint" heavily.Read more ›
I am going to find some 1/16" silicon rubber sheeting and cut my own. Should come out to about $0.10 per fix.
Mostly works like a champ. Once you learn the software and get it configured for what you are doing, you put in a stack of sheets and push the button and (except for problems noted below) you come back several minutes later and you have a PDF with the scanned images of the pages with searchable text.
The caveats are as follows:
While regular printer/copier paper rarely misfeeds, notebook paper sometimes has problems with more that one sheet being grabbed at a time.
In cases where the pages had been torn at perforations (think old tractor feed paper) sometimes the scanner will get partway through a job and then can't get the next sheet to feed without some help from the user.
The out tray has an upwards curvature in it which can make a feeding sheet push around the top sheet in the output tray. Sometimes a previous page gets dumped on the floor and the rest of the output stack is usually a bit disheveled. This more of a problem with wrinkled, torn or hole punched sheets than with sheets in good condition.
On the input tray the adjustable side guides do not go up far enough. With a large stack of paper some sheets will start feeding slightly askew but then straighten out gradually as they feed. The result is a scanned image that has a slight curvature in the image. Cutting down on how many pages in a stack and vigilance on checking the guides to eliminate slop helps a lot.
Have had a few problems with driver seeming to freeze. Cycling the scanner power usually un-seizes things.Read more ›
Cons...I'll bore you to death. For starters the One Touch driver fails to provide a decent PDF image, if you want to use PDF format, you will have to use the Twain driver, I contacted tech support twice and on both calls they advised to uninstall and reinstall the drivers(quick way to get rid of you), needless to say it didn't fix the problem, tried it on another pc and got the same problem, gave up on it and decided to use TIFF files when using the One Touch function. One Touch feature won't allow you to set a default name for your documents, you have to go back and rename it. It jams about 15% of the time, especially with thin paper, don't leave it unattended if you are scanning important documents. If you use the VRS option included in the One Touch driver it will make the scanning process slower 'cause it has to convert every page it scans, otherwise it is fast. Wake up! am not finished here...PaperPort 11 is slow, I reinstalled ver.9, which is faster and works all the time. The Business Card application was extremely slow and inaccurate, I removed it. As far as the OmniPage and the other software I haven't tried it so I have no comments. The ADF tabs that keep the documents aligned are to short/small and the papers tend to move sideways.
If this will be your first and only scanner you may be happy with it, however if you have used other scanners in the same price/features range you will not be happy. I have a Brother simplex flatbed scanner with ADF and it performs much better, better resolution and faster but I purchased this one for the duplex function and that it does well.
I personally believe that if they fix the One Touch driver and include some flexibility in it, this can be a 4 stars scanner.
