Good points: --Small, I can easily carry it to and from work --Acts in stand-alone mode (no drivers required) --Fast, quiet, duplexes --"Skip blank page" works fine --Feeds almost anything. I'm archiving family records now--feeds almost anything up to 100-year-old letters, card stock, stacks of photos. --TWAIN and ISIS drivers, that the Fujitsu does not have --Paper path is less angled than an all-in-one ADF's 180 degrees. --Easy to clear paper jam --Deskew generally works, but not always. I scan a stack of veiably-sized items, so I often do not use the paper guides. It's pretty gppd about keeping things straight.
Bad points: --Does not like onionskin paper --Takes 2 USB ports unless I want to pay $35 for an AC adapter --Black-and-white (1 bit) mode does not really like anything except crisp black test. Typewritten text, of which I have reams, does not come in well, I scan in grayscale or color. Have not played with the sensitivity --No output tray --I'm not at all pleased with the quality of scanned photos, but I suppose that's to be expected. I have an Epson Perfection for that. --Scanner software will handle only a few variations. Button can be assigned only to one --Will only scan to 14" long
Have not tried OCR I like it. I'm glad I bought it.
