Brother DS-600


The Brother DS-600 ($149.99 direct) isn't the smallest, lightest, fastest, or most capable portable document scanner, but it has one big argument in its favor: It is less expensive than the competition. That alone makes it worth considering if you're...

Small. Light. Inexpensive. Gets power over USB cable. Comes with protective sleeves for scanning photos safely

Simplex (one-sided) scans only. Manual feed only. Severe limits on ability to scan multiple document pages into one file

The Brother DS-600 document scanner lacks useful features like an automatic document feeder, but it's a highly portable, low-cost option for scanning on the go.

Pretty Good for the Money


I have been using the scanner non-stop since I purchased it. I am using it in an office setting, not home. It suits my needs as I generally am scanning one or two pages. I have used it for larger documents, and it was just a little tedious to feed in...

Serves its purpose


A great inexpensive desktop scanner. Problem free with good support from Brother.

Could be better


Does a nice job of copying but doesn't always feed straight, especially on smaller items like credit card receipts. Too bad you have to manually start the associated program before feeding documents. Would be better if putting document in feed slot...
