Works great after ......

 

I was soooooo disappointed wiht the first one. After reading all the hype, I could not believe hwo frustrated I was because of the paper jams. Finally, I called Xerox customer service. I did everything they said to do. A couple of days later, another...

lively and dependable

initially had paper jams

Paper Jam almost every time.

 

I was very dissapointed with this scanner. It had excellent reviews but with me there is a paper jam almost every time and even if I'm feeding just one page it will rip the page at the top. I called help line and they were friendly but could not solve...

easy to set up and install

Paper Jam virtually every time

Very Good

 

The price seems kind of high but this is a good machine compared to the typical MFP it'll whoop them. The software needs updating to be compliant with modern machines. Xerox did post Vista x64 compliant software drivers on it's website. Don't know if...

We have used this scanner to scan everything from small business cards, large card stock, normal paper and photos. Both 1 sided and 2 sided have been great. It is fast in black and white mode. comes with pretty good software that can read typed writing...

Feeder is biggest issue - We really had to work with the thicker card stock to make it go through. Also it just can't deal with more than about 30 pages in the hopper. The software is kind of strange to use until you figure out why sometimes it puts...

Incredible scanner

 

Very powerful scanner, for documents only. I'm not sure if this is a good photo scanner. I also bought a Canon thin flatbed for photos.

Very fast scanner. It moves the sheets thru rapidly, 1 sided or 2 sided scans doesn't seem to matter. Seems that the sheet feeder path being almost straight helps. Had another scanner before this, and the paper curving almost 180 degrees had jams and...

Not many, but I'm sure I may find some if I look hard enough. Only had this for a week now

XEROX DocuMate 272 XDM2725D-WU USB Interface Fast Duplex Sheetfed Scanner - Retail

 

The software package is good.

The second install CD was missing from the package which the company used overnight mail to send to me.

XEROX DocuMate 272 XDM2725D-WU 48 bit CCD 600 x 600 dpi Fast Duplex Sheetfed Scanner - Retail

 

I researched a lot of scanners and reviews are hard to come by. I was looking for one that we could use to convert office files paperless. I finally went with this one.

The software package is good. At least it eliminated the need for buying Adobe Acrobat which saved us a few bucks. The scanning quailty is good and as fast as they claim. After owning it a month I feel like i have a pretty good understanding of how it...

The second install CD was missing from the package which the company used overnight mail to send to me. It still took a couple of days

Quick review of Xerox DocuMate 272

 

There's a lot to like about the DocuMate 272, the faster, better, easier-to-use workgroup scanner solution for vertical markets that need to scan plastic ID cards as well as mixed sized documents. 30% faster than the leading brand workgroup scanner in...

Consumer review by:

This Product is GREAT!!

 

I purchased this scanner about 6 months ago. I really did not want to spend this much money on a scanner, however it was necessary. I own a small business and work from home. I use the spare upstairs bedroom as my office and I am required by law to ...

Product Specifications

There's a lot to like about the DocuMate 272 - the faster, better, easier-to-use workgroup scanner solution for vertical markets that need to scan plastic ID cards as well as mixed sized documents. 30% faster than the leading brand workgroup scanner in duplex mode, the DocuMate 272 is the price and performance leader in its category. It also includes a powerful suite of applications that improve image quality, OCR accuracy, and document management. And its revolutionary One Touch scanning and small compact size make it easy to use on any desktop or in any department. The DocuMate 272 quickly handles many different tasks at hand - right at the desktop. It has a 50-page automatic document feeder that scans up to 66 images per minute using dual CCDs - doubling your speed and productivity for two-sided documents. The DocuMate 272's powerful software, robust functionality, and hardware specifications deliver the speed and quality you would expect from a more expensive scanner. A searchable PDF feature lets you send, copy, paste, re-use, and highlight text while maintaining the integrity of the original document image. The bundled Kofax VRS software provides such capabilities as autoexposure and wide angle de-skew. VRS also helps improve the accuracy of recognition software, thereby reducing the need for manual correction of intelligent character recognition and OCR results.
