    For such a small device, it handles very well.

    I was very impressed with this scanner. Also, I like that it scans both sides without me having to do an extra step in turning the document around.

    Machine does everything that I expected, except I am not able to delete more than one scanned page at a time. I would also like to be able to rescan and insert a page in between other pages already scanned.

    Ok for the price

    For the money I guess this is an ok purchase. It generally pulls all the pages through to scan but there are times it wants to pull 2 or more pages through. Also the light that comes on when there is an error stays on. One thing is I wish companies would include the book with tech information. Not everyone is tech savy .

    This was by far more than I expected. What brilliance, speed and ease of use! I really got more than I bargained on. Scanned over 700 photos and pages. Only had to clean the lense one time.

    Good multipage office scanner

    Decent multipage scanner, have used the version a step down before so was familiar with these scanners. It handles documents with ease, but struggles with standard form receipts, and occasionally jams with multiple pages

    The little scanner with big capability

    I needed a page scanner to digitize too many paper documents. The online reviews and price point convinced me to give this machine a shot. I have been blown away how well this scanner works. Setup was extremely easy and the ability to create saved workflows was an unexpected pleasure. The scanning speed when plugged to AC power in is very fast with no misfeeds. I use the usb power when scanning just a few pages and the scanning speed is acceptable. My one complaint are the paper guides. They have a tendency to fold back on themselves when inserting paper so I end up spending a little more time getting the documents lined up. Overall, I highly recommended this scanner.

    mixed feelings

    worked great the first month. Could put the paper on a press the button and it would scan. Now I have to open the program on the computer and scan using the scan button in the program. Other than that the scans are crisp and clean.

    While this Brother ADS-1200 Compact Color Desktop Scanner, is not a dedicated photo scanner. This is a color document scanner, you should be able to scan photos, but note: when you scan photos it can curl the photos.
