A Portable Scanner : Brother DS-920DW


While standalone flatbed and All-in-One devices can cope with many scanning tasks, sometimes you need a more specialised piece of equipment to handle this aspect of your document management needs.

The Brother DS-920DW is a device described as an “anywhere, anytime, portable scanner”. As the “DW” part of the product’s model number might indicate, this scanner offers both Duplex or double sided scanning and wireless connectivity.

Great Product & Service


I am a detail guy who has a tough time discarding information that might be needed in the future. I received a DSmobile® 920DW for Christmas and quickly went to put it to use - to save me from myself. I found that the battery would not hold a charge...
