Consumer review (

Just don't buy


Worked fine for a while but now doesn't recognise network and you constantly have to reboot it. Support is pretty hopeless as far as I cab see. So manages to be an office hindrance rather than an asset. I would not recommend purchasing this.

Consumer review (

Brother ADS-2600W


Speed of scanning

Very slow interface. Keeps reverting to main menu after every scan. Quite temperamental when feeding less than perfect sheets through.

Consumer review (

Brother ADS-2600W


Fairly speedy

Touchscreen interface on device is slow and cumbersome. Would have just preferred hardware buttons. Mac software is truly awful, like something from 1992. If you original document is faint, scan is often blurred Worst of all, there appears to be no way...
