    Brother ADS-1500W reviews

    ADS-1500w Wireless Document Scanner is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 159.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Ugh! OH!! Original machine would not work; persistent paper jam. Called Brother to complain. Offered little help. Would not offer replacement. After persistence on my part, Brother "offered" to exchange the machine. The replacement works GREAT!! Brother than send a "threatening" email about not receiving the original machine which I had returned. I checked with the carrier and found that Brother had received the original machine and I got confirmation. I wanted to reply to Brother's email with the info BUT their email offered NO way for me to contact Brother!! So I dropped the matter but kept all the documentation on this whole matter!!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Scanner I bought this due to the scanner on my printer was having issues. For school I like to scan in my books so I can export them to my iPad for easier reading, and less weight to carry around. The quality and speed of this scanner surpassed my expectations. I was able to scan in one of my text books (1,000 pages) cover to cover in just about 1 hour. If you ask, thats fast. This is using the usb cable as well. The Wi-Fi scanning works fine, but of course is a lot slower. The receipt software you can get can be a little tricky to setup but overall is pretty neat. Also the ability to can in plastic cards is great. It scans the cards (both sides) at once and puts them one on top of another in your preferred format.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice scanner I have several scanners at home for personal and business use. This little guy exceeded my expectations in terms of performance and connectivity, particularly at the price range (compared to other more expensive brands). I like that I can send my scan copies directly to SkyDrive (now OneDrive) and that I can scan wirelessly too. The only caveat that I've found is that the OCR used in combination with the BR-Receipts software it's kind of weak. I use this scanner mainly for digitizing receipts and it takes a long time to run the OCR and then not getting a proper return in the digital receipt (i.e. 90% of the times I have to manually input the values in the receipts).

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Extremely good product The scanner is ideal for both stationary and on the move printing. I have it hooked up to both a PC and MAC and have no problems with either setup. I utilize Paperport with the PC installation and it works like a dream, whereas I use the native software on the Mac which although it may not be ideal, works wonderfully. The only quarrel that I have with this scanner is that the page guides don't have an overlap to hold the pages in place and as a result, on some occasions, the scan will be skewed, whereas if they put in a couple of pieces of cheap plastic this would be resolved and the scanner would get five stars out of me.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product TERRIBLE CUSTOMER SERVICE The scanner is great! The software is easy to customize to your needs and operate. I did have some issue when changing out my router. I went through all of the trouble shooting that was online and in the book, they did not work. Spent 45 min on hold with tech support for them to email me the same information that I had already gone through. I asked the operator on the line if he could give me tech support, after all that's who I called. He said "no, the only thing we can do is send you trouble shooting information." Waist of time! I figured it out myself without the trouble shooting information.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Product! I use this product almost everyday and it is easy to use. You can scan multiple items at once or one at a time and long items. There are only a few issues I'm not happy with. I don't like using the receipt holder to scan receipts. If you scan the receipts without the receipt holder the receipt could jam up in the scanner. I like to scan at best quality but lowest file space size. Even though you can adjust the file size/quality it doesn't always seem to work well. You either get small file size at low quality or good quality at large file size. I'm still an amateur at using this so maybe there is a way to get the best of both quality and small file size.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from ADS-1500W I like the product except that it is sometimes difficult, especially if I have more than one document in the input hopper, to keep aligned. When the pages go askew, I almost always have a jam and have to restart the process. It would be helpful if you could include a vertical guide for the paper(s) to rest, as well as some simple method of capturing the ejected pages (after they are scanned).

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Life Saver Pros: 1) I can scan to my smartphone which is a good thing if you don't want to turn on your computer or laptop. 2) semi fast scanning, so far all my documents have been line free. 3) compact size, going to be taking this unit with me on the road. Cons: 1) so far I have noticed that it does get a lot of paper jams. however they can be removed with ease. 2) Setting up the wireless connection was a little harder than I wanted, wish they had installed a Bluetooth for smartphones. I would have gave this unit 5 of 5 stars if it wasn't for the cons.
