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

Consumer review by:

Easy to use - But hardware and software problems


I purchased the scanner for its small size and duplex ability. The DS700D takes up much less desk space then a flatbed scanner and is easy to move out of the way. Usually I am scanning 8.5 x 11 paper statements although smaller sheets can usually be...

Takes up small amount of desk space; easy to move

Paper feed is a problem, Duplex scan problem

More conveinient than a full size scanner. Great!


I really wanted this scanner for small jobs, but I find that it is a much more versatile scanner then I originally thought. It works much quicker than any full-sized scanner that I have owned. I would recommend it to others.About me... small business...

I bought this product to help scan bills and other paper clutter at home so I could shred them and clean out my drawers.Day 1: Installed and worked as expected. Kind of tedious having to feed each sheet to it individually, but I didn't buy this one...
