Brother DS-700D

 

The Brother DS-700D is relatively big and heavy for a portable scanner, and it lacks an automatic document feeder (ADF), but it can scan both sides of a page at once.

Gets power over USB cable. Duplex scanning (both sides at once). Comes with protective sleeves for scanning easily damaged originals

Manual feed only. Large and heavy for a portable scanner. Severe limits on scanning multiple document pages into one file

Brother DS-700D review

 

An inexpensive portable scanner, but the competition is worth the extra cash

The DS-700D may seem like a bargain, but in practice it's comfortably outclassed by several competitors. We'd gladly pay more for the Fujitsu ScanSnap S1300 or the Canon ImageFormula P-215.

Portable Duplex Scanner : Brother DS-700D

 

Unlike my usual desktop flatbed scanner, which copies single-sided documents, this next scanner can copy both sides of a document simultaneously.

The Brother DS-700D was almost one of those chicken and egg situations when I opened the packaging encasing a new scanner from Brother. There was no Set-up or Quick Start Guide in the box. Should the hardware be connected before or after the software,...

Tricky to feed; uneven software

 

Need to practice to get the sheets to go in straight. Smaller than full-size sheets are even trickier; smaller items (like receipts) are impossible unless you use the plastic sleeve. I noticed that the sleeve made my scans look dull and gray; this can...

* duplex scanning * small, portable, no power brick required * easy to use * works well on photos

* tricky to feed sheets in straight * using plastic sleeve reduces contrast of scan * included software can be confusing * does not auto reverse upon jam * grey scale scan quality only so-so

Great Portable Scanner

 

This is a great little scanner. Highly recommended.

This scanner is great. We have been scanning all of our old client files (multiple pages per file). This scanner lets you start a scan, then you can work on other things while simply periodically sticking the next page in. Switching between BW,...

Does not scan semi transparent items, such as xrays.

Great Product!

 

A lot of research on other portable scanners led me to make this more expensive purchase. The operation is easy, the scan quality is good and easy. So far, I have no regrets. Indeed, it is small and portable.

Unit did not operate

 

I gave this a poor review because the unit did not work straight out of the box. However,
