      Comments about Brother DSmobile 720D Mobile Duplex Document Scanner:

      The scanner works great and I really needed duplex capability. The scanner is small and easy to put out-of-sight when not in use. The ability to scan receipts is great too but their receipt management program needs some revisions and enhancements. I find myself entering at least some information manually for every receipt. (It is supposed to use OCR to populate receipt details automatically.) I would recommend this to anyone looking for a scanner except those wanting to use it to scan photos. This scanner is of the type that draws documents into it to scan them and the internals could possibly scratch a photo surface. A flatbed-type scanner would be better because it has no document motion and scratching the photo surface would be more difficult.
