Do NOT Trust Positive Reviews

 

I buy internationally manufactured products routinely on Newegg; they're usually great and unbelievable bargains. This product is so bad, I am stunned that Newegg agreed to sell it. Given that the "Details" say that the device does not work on Windows...

None, if your system is Windows 7. Do NOT trust the positive reviews below. Downloading the software from genuisnet, apparently a Taiwanese company, will take most home users at least an hour, after which the unzipped drivers will not install on a...

Do NOT trust reviews here that claim this will work on a Windows 7 64-bit system. The software included in the scanner package claims the driver can be updated; it cannot. Worse, if you have a slot-loading optical drive, the software may refuse to eject

Great product

 

We have had no issues yet and little options like being able to set what the buttons do make it a one click scanner with multiple options, you can do is much or as little as you want.

This is a great little scanner, I was able to set it up for my sales department so they could scan papers and licensees. While the included software feels a bit cheep and old it does work just fine on windows xp32 - 764. If you set it correctly you can...

The software is kinda old and clunky but it is a twain scanner so I think you can use other software

Additional info

 

Since Newegg won't let me put hyperlinks here, I'll have to do it this way: go to "genius.com" and click on "Download". In the search box in the upper left, type in "SF600" and hit enter. A list of drivers will appear, including those for Win7. You...

This is an addition to my previous review. I found the location on the company's website that has the drivers available for download

Win 7

 

I've had this at college for a couple years and it has been very helpful but now I can't get it to work with my new install of Win 7 and there is very little help online.

Great little scanner. Helped me out with sharing notes and documents instantly

IT DOES NOT WORK WITH WIN 7. Win 7 cannot find the driver and the different versions of the driver I've tried don't work. Major draw back!!! I'm going to need to duel boot my computer with XP just so I can use this scanner

Not great, but not bad, either

 

Over all, I'm pretty pleased with this scanner. It seems to be fairly solidly made, and does a decent job of scanning documents. Note that there is no claim made for it as a photo-quality scanner - and it isn't. In response to the reviewer who said...

Well built, reasonably fast scan at 300dpi, good OCR, acceptable color

Large areas of solid colors show artifacting and blotchiness ; Won't scan images to anything other than included software, or to a file ; JPEG compression is apparently set to maximum compression, with resultant maximum loss of quality ; Software is...

Genius Color Page - SF600 48bit Single pass 600 x 600dpi Scanner

 

Contrary to rumor, it is compatible with Vista 32 for sure....I am using Vista 32. Also, it shows that it scans "A4" size paper.....A4 is the European form of the US 8.5" x 11" size. A4 is a hair larger...so it reads 8.5 x 11 just fine. Excellent price...

works okay

 

inexpensive, small, portable

bad software, old drivers that annoyingly load on startup, no Apple compatibility, color bleeding

Consumer review by:

Scanner does not work

 

The manufacturer should have much better QC. I wouldn't have these problems if they really cared about the quality of their product.

Comes with decent software and works out of the box

After scanning 1 8.5x11 page and 1 business card, the scanner no longer pulls paper through. Any "successful" scan yields either a blank document or a document with gray drag lines through it. I have recalibrated and even cleaned it and it does not...

A WINNER

 

BE NICE IF IT WERE WIRELESS

DOES EVERTHING A FLATBED SCANNER WILL DO WITH GOOD DEFINATION, MAYBE A TAD SLOWER

NONE SO FAR

Genius Color Page - SF600 48bit Single pass 600 x 600dpi Scanner

 

This is actually perfect for me. I only wanted it for simple business needs (e.g. scan receipts, documents to email). I have not yet used it on high quality images so I am not sure how well it will scan but I would assume okay.

Slim design and very compact

basic scanner - not for use with high volume projects. A little difficult to change from color to black and white. The option is not on the scanner itself but in the software
