Super Buy at a great discount


I've used the DocuMate 150 for years and literraly wore it out. When the 162 model came available at a substantial discount, I jumped on the opportunity. This model is much faster and will allow me to digitize my paper files very quickly. I highly...

You get what you pay for.


Would not interface with my document management software. It only wants to use its software. It sucked!

Great Scanner


This scanner is great. The DocuMate 162 comes with an ISIS driver. Works flawlessly with Acrobat Pro 9.3 and Abbyy Finereader 10 Corp. Unless others received lemons chalk up anything less than 5 stars as user error. The included software is both good...

Duplex Scanning ; Fast ; Decent Document Load ; One Touch Preset for Simplex and Duplex ; ISIS Driver ; Kofax VRS ; Scan quality is fantastic. (I get small clear grayscale docs with great OCR at 300dpi and less than 500kb.)

No Mac drivers included* (there are Mac drivers available though from a 3rd Party) ; Software is pretty weak for this market segment ; I honestly don't have any problem whatsoever with this scanner but those are cons some other people might have. For...

Works great in my insurance agency environment. We've just started the change to a paperless environment and this scanner is working well. We don't use the included software as our agency management system uses it's own proprietary software. Very...

Great little scanner


There are several software programs included to help you scan some were easier than others and the only limited help is in the e-manual. I found the one touch the simplest.

Small footprint. Fast Scans. I have been using the one touch interface to scan directly to .pdf or for OCR and it is simple. Great scanner - with $200 off promo code - this is a good deal

None so far

Fast scanner,


Great buy at NewEgg sale price, provided you bring your own software.

Fast Scanner, works in Windows 7 64 bit, small, portable, very well priced when on sale at NewEgg

Outdated, or older versions of software, including some bloat and limited use trial ware and un-upgradable oem ware

Didn't work for us


price is right

On sale, this scanner was the best price to performance. However, upon installation we found that the Xerox scanner took much longer to warm up to the first page than other scanners in our clinic, the TWAIN driver was buggy, it would inconsistently...
