Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brother Wireless Compact Desktop Scanner ADS-17...I received this product for free from Brother in exchange for my honest opinion/review of the product. Overall: This is a lightweight and fast compact scanner. Once the initial setup was completed I was able to scan photos, bills, and statements. This is a great scanner for someone who is tech savvy.Pros: The scanner is able to do one-sided and double-sided scanning. An excellent feature is the OCR capability. Shortcuts can be set up specifying the scan resolution, black/color/gray scale, and location where the file will be stored on the PC.Cons: Setup requires some technical know how. Use of the online manual is necessary. In order to connect the laptop and computer, one needs a USB (micro which is not included. Web based management and knowledge of the scanner`s IP address and server provider`s settings for email setup is needed. Photos scanned initially had many streaks; I had to refer to the online manual and clean the glass strips in the scanner multiple times. Even though I was able to do a workflow scan from the computer to the scanner, I was unable to perform a workflow scan from the scanner. It would be nice if you could name your scan files; filenames are automatically generated. Although the scanner is compact, it cannot be set too close to a desk or table edge or the pages it scans will fall to the floor. It cannot scan newspapers articles well since the ink bleeds through the image and the bleed through setting does not work well on newspapers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Impressive scannerI received this product for free from Brother in exchange for my honest opinion/review of the product. I thought the scanner was initially quite small. My husband helped me install it, and he said there were a lot of instructions to follow and drivers to upload, etc. so it didn`t seem the most intuitive item. However, the wireless connectivity works wonderfully, and it scanned my first document so fast I was impressed. The quality of the image was also sharp, and then it gave us options to print it, save it, etc, so we didn`t have to go searching for the document in our computer in order to see it. All in all quite the little scanner! We are happy with it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works as describedThe ADS-1700 was easy to set up. I followed the installation instructions and it was ready to go. I was anticipating some problems because of prior Brother MFC and printer installations but not this time.I use it constantly and have it on my desk next to my HL2240 printer. Works good for work flow.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wish it worked like the ads-1500w. But it doesntI purchased the ads-1700w to replace the ads-1500w. It does not have some key features passed on. First, you can't send to the cloud from the device. It has to be tethered to a PC. I can't be a near a PC always to get connectivity to upload to Dropbox. Instead, I have to go through the PC program and the program did not recognize the scanner wirelessly. Second. It will not connect to my NAS shared drive. I called brother and level 5 couldn't help. They are trying though. But my MFC-l8900CDW, my ads-1500w and my ADS-2800W all do. So. I returned the ads-1700w. I could not wait any longer for level 5 to get this going for me. Wish that it did. The lack of direct to cloud and the NAS issue killed it for me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brother ADS-1700W ScannerI received this product for free from Brother in exchange for my honest opinion/review of the product. When I got the scanner in the mail, I was surprised at how small and compact it was. But size doesn`t matter when it comes to this scanner. It was super easy to set up and connect to, even to your phone and simple instructions. I scanned in my children`s birth certificates and it scanned them in so precise and clear that if I printed them it may look like the original. It is really fast once scanning. I really also like the touch screen. I think it being so small is great because you can easily store it without it looking bulky and taking up space. The only thing I`d be worried about is dropping it and breaking it since its so small, but for the most part it seems sturdy enough. If you are trying to go paperless as possible, this scanner is the perfect solution for that.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brother ADS-1700w: Powerful Scanner w Some Cave...I received this product for free from Brother in exchange for my honest opinion/review of the product. Item: Brother ADS-1700w Compact Desktop Wireless ScannerFunctionality: The purpose of this item is to provide high-quality black and white and/or color scanning of loose documents (since it is a scanner that requires putting documents fully through the machine, rather than a flatbed), with wireless functionality and duplexing capability. It performs these tasks well, but I have significant reservations, outlined below.Appearance/First impressions: Frankly, this scanner is adorable. It weighs a fair bit for its size, but nothing I would consider unmanageable, and it looks so friendly! It`s absolutely portable, which is important for someone who travels as much as I do, but it also looks and feels solid in a desktop environment.Setup: The setup instructions provided through the software did not match the actual actions necessary to set up the scanner, and the software froze during setup; nonetheless, I found configuration to be reasonably intuitive. (I was somewhat alarmed to see the poor rating the software had on the Mac App Store, but so far I have not had any issues with it.)One small quibble: I found the "date/time" setting mechanism to be highly unintuitive; I spent a couple minutes mashing buttons wondering why nothing was happening before I realized I had to deliberately delete the incorrect time information before inputting accurate information.Scan quality: Scans are crisp and sharp, and color scans are BEAUTIFUL. Artifacts in the scan are rare and the double-sided functionality is truly impressive. I LOVE how fast the scanner is, and the options presented to me by the software (save, email, compile a document, etc) are intuitive and useful. Drawbacks: Whenever any document of a nonstandard size is inserted, it skews badly to one side or the other as it rolls through no matter how the plastic tabs on the machine are adjusted, or how carefully the settings on the computer software are altered. If I were to need to email or post online something that had been scanned, it would require careful editing in a separate program so it would appear straight, since changing the angle by degrees is not a function the Brother software seems to have. Perhaps this is user error, and as I get used to the scanner I will learn how to keep documents from sliding out of place as they go through, but for now it is a significant impediment to this scanner being actually useful to me. My old flatbed scanner is enormously unwieldy and can`t travel with me, which I hate, but at least I don`t have to spend tons of time editing the images it puts out.Overall: I like this scanner enough to want to keep using it, but since the "tracking" issues with documents could have been easily fixed with the addition of some additional or more adjustable plastic grooves like the ones high-powered printers have, I find myself a little disappointed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just what I was looking for.The ADS-1700W is fast and efficient. The ability to send several papers to a file on my computer with ease. I have gotten rid of so much paper, I can only smile at the order in my office. Have a sense of security knowing I won't lose important papers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brother Scanner ADS-1700WI received this product for free from Brother in exchange for my honest opinion/review of the product. I was extremely excited to receive the scanner and could not wait to set it up. Downloading the software was relatively easy. It took some time to connect to my wifi, but that was eventually done. The scanner comes with settings which were a little confusing. The main issue I had was scanning multiple pages. If I tried to scan a three page document, it saved on my computer as three separate documents instead of one document with three pages. I contacted customer support through their chat and they advised me to try download the software again and they send more detailed instructions. This did not help. I then called their help desk and I was advised to change the document from a JPEG to a PDF. This worked and the scanner worked like a charm. I love how quickly it scans a documents and that it scanned all pages in order. The largest document that I scanned was 24 pages. I don`t like that it doesn`t have a tray to catch the pages once they pass through the machine and also that the pages do not scan straight. The size of the scanner is great as it does not take up much room.
