Rated 2 out of 5 by iSpeakTruth from *BUYER BEWARE* Crooked Scans coming your way The speed and quality (even at just 300 dpi) is impressively sharp when viewing scanned Tax Returns on my 27" widescreen display. However there is a serious problem that may very well be the reason I decide to return it.. and its crooked scan outputs. If you scan 3-4 pages at one time, at least 2 of them will scan crooked even if you place the papers in as neatly and aligned as you can. This is due to 2 reasons: 1) The way it feeds paper, it starts with the page at the very back of the stack (touching the black tray) and continues in that order until the last scan is the page that was facing you. The problem is that every time a sheet is pulled through the scanner, the force that it takes to fight the friction caused by the weight of the stack is more than enough to shift the next few pages out of alignment. Then it pulls a misaligned page through causing the remaining stack to start leaning towards one side. I scanned a 17 page Tax Return and the last page was so out of line by the time it got pulled through that the title at the top got cut off by the left border of the page, and the bottom 20% of the page was cut off by the right border of the page. The results get worse the more pages in the stack. And then, Brother's iPrint&Scan software has an "auto deskew" option that doesn't do ANYTHING. After waiting for 17 pages to scan, the results were every single page was out of line. Some were leaning to the left, some to the right, some were cut off, some look like they came out of a black hole looking all warped like those eye trickery illusions where one end of the same horizontal line looks extra big compared to the opposite end that looks thinner than it actually is on paper. You get what i'm saying? Which brings me to my next point... 2) The alignment bracket on the feed tray is too wide for 8.5x11" standard printer paper (which is what it's designed to hold if you look at the dimensions written on the tray). It has one job... to hold 8.5x11" paper nicely together. But you will NEVER get to take advantage of that bracket because it doesn't matter if you scan 1 page or 25 pages, the bracket will always be too wide. I can't even get a straight scan putting one in at a time. Usually I don't write reviews but i'm pretty annoyed that none of these 15+ page Tax Returns look close to a normal scan job. There's extra grey bordering on every page and I have to deskew and then crop every.... single..... page....

Rated 5 out of 5 by Ponyv6 from Excellent scans and super fast...love it! I have hundreds of photos that I needed to digitize. This scanner solved my problem by providing excellent scans and super fast input. The price was more than half of what other compatible scanners cost. The brand is also reliable.
