Brother ImageCenter ADS-1000W

 

The Brother ImageCenter ADS-1000W offers a lot to like, but it lacks a final polish, letting you scan to a USB key, for example, but making the USB port hard to get to.

Duplex. Can scan to USB memory key. One step scanning to image PDF, searchable PDF, Word format, and more

Some minor oversights, including failing to install software that the installation program says it will install

Best described as an unusually compact desktop scanner, the Brother ImageCenter ADS-1000W is a touch too big to call portable. Brother says it's meant primarily for small and home offices, but it's really a reasonable choice in any size office if you...

Consumer review by: Kevin M. (newegg.com)

Reduced my work load greatly.

 

Works great all around, pretty low price for the amount of boredom it has saved me from.

Makes scanning much faster than your typical printer/scanner combo. I am able to do huge stacks of papers in a small fraction of the time it took before for a small business. Very light/small. Fit's in drawers easily when not in use. Wireless or hooks...

If you don't load it properly it sometimes likes to eat several papers at a time, and if you're not watching it like a hawk you might miss a few scans. Can probably consider the brother program crapware, it's not that bad but its probably bigger than...

Nice Compact Scanner

 

Good enough for a business use.

Small, ez to setup and very good scanner.

When scanning, sometime you will have to hold the paper, if not it comes out all funky after it is scanned.

Disapointing

 

It can scan documents when connected by USB to a Windows box

After fully updating all software and firmware, can't connect to the unit with WIFI, even though it does get an IP from the router. Does not work with lubuntu. The documents I'm scanning are thinnish and there's quite a bit of bleed through in some...
