Brother ImageCenter ADS-1500W

 

The Brother ImageCenter ADS-1500W lets you scan directly to an assortment of cloud services, but only over a Wi-Fi connection to a network.

Duplex. Can scan directly to USB memory key and an assortment of cloud services, as well as to a PC

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

How you feel about the Brother ImageCenter ADS-1500W will depend largely on whether you want to scan to the cloud services it supports and also whether you're perfectly comfortable using a Wi-Fi connection to do that. If so, the scanner makes it easy...

LINUX REVIEW

 

I tested with Ubuntu 14.04. I will redo this review if I find more of if something changes. This is not a +$500 scanner, it doesn't work like a +$500 scanner but it does a great job once you learn its quirks. Brother has done a great job integrating...

Reviews are dead on with the jamming but it is manageable ; Would like to see native receipt software for linux too ; Setup is via the command line OK for me but just because you are a linux user doesn't mean we dont like a GUI ; Cannot initiate scan...

So far so good.... Fast Scanner!

 

Only had this scanner for a few weeks now but so far it has worked very well. I scan 6 - 12 documents a day to send to different members of a non profit organization. The wi fi capability is very nice. A little tricky to setup but that's true for most...

Portable Scanner

 

The nice thing about this is that you can take it anywhere. The one downside is that sometimes, it doesn't scan to the correct proportions on larger photos.
