Brother DSmobile 620

 

Low cost. Highly portable. Comes with capable document management software with built-in optical character recognition.

Although it comes with business card software, it doesn't handle business cards well.

The Brother DSmobile 620 scanner is suitable for light-duty scanning as a portable or on the desktop, with simplex (one-sided), manual-feed scanning and a low price.

Brother DS-620 Mobile Review

 

Inexpensive and more than adequate for shorter documents, but doesn't handle large scanning jobs well

Inexpensive, fairly simple to operate, a significant improvement over flatbed models

Poor text recognition, not great for long (10+ page) documents

The provides an inexpensive and dependable scanning option for those that scan somewhat infrequently. If your scanning needs include lots of long documents, however, you're going to want to invest in a more capable model.

Technical Support Did not help

 

I have not been able to install the BR Receipts Software. I contacted the company for help, but they have not been able to find a solution. The response has been slow! Very disappointed

Great tool.

 

My scanner was refurbished, so I was concerned that it wouldn't be up to par, but it's great: fast, good quality, does exactly what I want.

I don't use it much but when I do it works every time and puts the scan where I want it.

Great Machine

 

It does everything I need -- copies all manner of documents, even little ones. Permits naming of files where the documents can be organized according to my personal needs. It's just smooo...th.
