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...

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.

Optical resolution for the ADS-1500W is 600 pixels per inch (ppi), with a default setting of 300 ppi, which is more than you need for most document scanning. The speed rating for 300 ppi in both color and black and white, is 18 pages per minute (ppm)...

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...

Can be used entirely without a computer ; Very compact and portable ; Works for the most part as advertised ; Works with linux via SANE ; Brother support for LINUX is fairly solid with most of their products and seem to work well and as advertised

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...

Save your money or upgrade to a full size

 

In my quest to find a decent duplex scanner I gave this one a shot. It didn't work so hot. Paper was always getting jammed. Pulled 3 or 5 sheets at a time, then jammed. Consistently. I really wanted to like this scanner. But in the end it was way too...
