    Very good network scanner

    B. Willems | 11 April 2018 | Automatically translated from Dutch

    • Speed: 44ppm to NAS
    • Good scan quality
    • Many possibilities (scan to network folder)
    • Good document feeder: up to 80 pages easily
    • Big screen
    • Brother software not great
    • Function of function 'determination too much input'

    Scans fast and well: Effectively measured speed of 44 pages per minute at 300 dpi, in color to a PDF on a network drive. That's front and back, so 88 pages per minute. That is a lot faster than in the specifications.

    The document feeder works very well. I had previously bought the ADS-2600WE, but that device had a very unreliable document feeder. This device is an improvement in almost all areas. The automatic document feeder can easily handle 80 sheets of paper at once (more than 50 in the specifications). You can also set it to continue in the same file after one scan task has been completed. This allows you to immediately lose a whole pack in 1 document.

    The Brother software itself is a big improvement over the ADS-2600WE, but it's still not perfect. Quite a few utilities are installed with it that remain active on your system all the time.

    I keep scanning to a network folder. This means you don't actually have to install anything on your PC. This works easily and quickly. The only downside is that you can't directly create "searchable PDFs" this way. Now, when you scan from PC, this feature takes so long that I didn't use it anyway. Now, if I occasionally want a searchable PDF, I use the included third party software (ABBY finereader sprint) to make the PDF editable with OCR afterwards.

    The biggest drawback of this device is the poorly used function for the 'multiple input'. The device has a sensor (based on ultrasonics) to measure variations in the thickness of the paper. As a result, it can give an error message when detecting 'multiple sheets'. This function is for when the ADF pulls multiple sheets at once.

    However, this system will also give an alarm if you have confirmed something on the paper. For example with a post-it, or a note with adhesive tape. In that case, there is usually nothing wrong and the device is allowed to continue scanning.

    If the multiple feed detection is on, scanning will stop immediately when it detects multiple feeds. So you can't choose to continue anyway. Ideally, you will receive a warning, but you can then choose to continue anyway (eg because it is a post-it that can be scanned). This does not work with this device. You can turn off the multiple input detection, but you have to turn this off in the settings on the web server. So you cannot create different scan profiles, one that has the function on and one that has it off. It would have been nicer if you could set this yourself before posing, on the device itself, or in the scan profiles.

    Conclusion: super scanner that works very smoothly and reliably! There are not many scanners that work autonomously via a network cable (and therefore scan without a PC to, for example, a NAS). So if you want this functionality, this device is definitely the best buy.

    Recommended!

    Bert | 24 July 2018 | Automatically translated from Dutch

    • Speed
    • Shortcuts for different applications and settings
    • Display immediately provides information and correct help text
    • Scan over network
    • Direct to email (even when computer is off)
    • Some settings can only be made via PC
    • Manual differs from display menu

    I would like information in Dutch, I only managed to do that after the scanner and computer were connected and the software was installed. After that everything went very smoothly and the PC interface makes up for it (several shortcuts have been created, such as double-sided to PDF with a fixed file name, or directly name a certain email address).

    Great device

    CJ Mourik | 17 April 2020 | Automatically translated from Dutch

    • Silent scanner
    • Many options for scanning
    • Many connection options
    • Various file formats as scan file possible

    I've had several scanners at work but this Brother still performs better.
