Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Small Scanner for Someone Like MeI received this product for free from Brother in exchange for my honest opinion/review of the product. When I first got the scanner, the box was so light weight and I was thinking that there must be something missing. However, once opening the box and checking the instruction booklet to see all parts were included, I realized that the scanner was just light weight and compact.I am terrible and putting together things from scratch, but this scanner was so easy to assemble. I followed along with the directions for the initial set up and was able to set this scanner up in less than 15 minutes. It was very self-explanatory. Super easy assembly as well!My favorite part about this scanner is how small and compact it is. I work at home three days out of the week and am constantly scanning in documents and the quality of this scanner is really good. You can scan in color or black and white. It scans very fast! I was able to scan a ten page document in less than 20 seconds, where previously my scanner took FOREVER.Compared to other scanners, this one was a dream. I love how you can download the Brother`s app and send pdf documents right to your phone. You can basically function the entire scanner from an app on your phone. This made things so much easier to scan documents directly to my work email for when I am working at home and then finish what I had to do on my computer and attach it to any email I wanted. If you don`t want to use it with the app, you can use it on wireless or you can use it as a standalone scanner, so it is very versatile.Overall, I would recommend this scanner to anyone that works from home and needs to be able to scan, or for someone that owns their own business and has a home office. I would even recommend it for a small place of business.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great little workhorse document scanner!I received this product for free from Brother in exchange for my honest opinion/review of the product. ASSEMBLY: Super easy to assemble as I only needed to attach the back document feeder easily snapped into the main body. The front receiver of the scanner simply unfolds three times to be set up. The power cord was provided and plugs into the back area. However, there was no USB cord provided to connect it to the computer, so I had to look for a spare one to use. But if you set up the wifi so that it connects to your computer or mobile devices, then there really is no need for physical connect at all.CONNECTING TO COMPUTER: For some reason, I had some issues setting up the driver software, so it took me a few tries, and actually going to search for the driver on the company`s website, before I was able to download the driver that actually worked to allow it to connect to my computer. After it got set up though, it was really easy to use. The user`s manual is quite dearth in information and doesn`t talk much about the many features of the scanner. But I was able to go through the different features using the interface screen.PHYSICAL ASPECTS: This is such a tiny space-saving scanner that will fit on any desk, making it convenient to have at your side for whenever you need to scan things. Completely set up, it only takes the space of two 8.5" x 11" sheets of paper placed side to side. I`ve actually never seen suck a compact scanner that also has a document feeder. It is not heavy either, but heavy enough so that it is very stable. The front tray becomes a little thin as you unfold, and actually looks a bit flimsy. But when you feel it, it is quite strong and sturdy enough when I tried scanning the maximum 50 sheets you can feed at one time, into the scanner. But I am still careful to make sure that I do not accidentally knock it too much since the small plastic connection pieces keeping it together might get damaged.USAGE: There are days when I need to scan in a ton of documents and previous scanners I have used were just not very fast nor simple to use. It was such a breeze to stick 50 sheets into the back feeder, choose the location I want it sent to, and then the start button. It took less than 2 minutes to scan everything. The first time I did this, I actually thought there would be mistakes or pages not scanned, because I didn`t believe that it would be able to do everything so fast. But I was wrong, and happy about it too, because not only were all the documents clearly scanned, but they were also conveniently saved as a pdf file, allowing me to send them off to the client right away! What a time saver this machine is. PROBLEMS: As much as I love this scanner, I did not feel that it worked as well (compared to other scanners I have used when I need to scan in very high quality images. The maximum resolution allowed for images is 600dpi, which is fairly low for my line of work. The colors do not scan in as bright as the originals, and when I scan in images found in magazines or newspapers, there is no option for descreening the images, which would remove the weird lines on the images. But that is fine, because I know to use my other scanner when I need to scan in high quality images, and to use this scanner when I need quick document scanning. Another small issue with the interface screen, is that when I accidentally push the wrong button or option, I would have to let it run through before being allowed to go back in order to selevt the right one. This doesn`t usually happen, but when I am in a rush, I sometimes push things fast and make more wrong / accidental choices.PRICE: I felt that the price is a little on the higher end, compared to other scanners I have gotten. I would recommend this, despite the higher price, if you need to scan in a lot of documents everyday, because it really is worth the time saved and the quality of the scans. This efficient little machine has earned a long-term stay at my office desk!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy To InstallI received this product for free from Brother in exchange for my honest opinion/review of the product. I had no problem setting it up on my computer. It scanned documents and photos quickly. I enjoyed the fact that I could put up to 50 sheets of paper in the scanner to auto scan. This product is good for home and office use. It did a good job of organizing my files. This scanner did a great job of scanning both sides of a sheet at the same time. This scanner worked well with Wi-Fi. 3 D scanning was not available. This scanner was able to send my scanned documents to my cloud storage and my cell phone. This scanner had a lower resolution than other scanners so it was better scanning text than pictures.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Terrible for Mac usersThe first time I used it I was impressed and I thought this thing was amazing. Now that it has quit talking to my computer every other time I have tried to use it I think it is a piece of junk.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from ADS 2700WIt scans and does just that for me. No ads! The scan is fast. Processing to hit my file in the computer is fast. It does more but this may be overkill for me, so be it as I will dive into other features as my needs emerge. If not, for me this device is well worth it to get work done. Period.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great, compact scanner!I received this product for free from Brother in exchange for my honest opinion/review of the product. I love that this scanner took up minimal space on my desk. The instructions for set up were easy to follow, and assembily was really fast; I was able to set it up in minutes. I really like the touch screen LCD on the scanner because I don`t have to push hard on the buttons at all. Scanning was rather fast. I liked that I was easily able to scan multiple pages. I also liked that the scanner did not produce that annoying whirring sound - that had been an issue for me with my old scanner. The quality of the scanned images was great. The ability to scan to mobile devices is very convenient. I especially loved the ability to remove blank pages within documents; this had been a huge issue with my old scanner. Overall, I would definitely recommend this scanner for a home office or small business. My only complaint is that I wish it was a different color other than white, but that`s just me being picky.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brother ADS-2700W ReviewI received this product for free from Brother in exchange for my honest opinion/review of the product. The Brother ADS-2700W has all the scanning basis covered. This compact desktop scanner supports USB, wired and wireless operation, and represents excellent value, too.Here`s a rundown on the basics:STORAGE: My office lacked space for what I thought would be a large scanner but when it arrived I was pleasantly surprised. It fit perfectly on the corner of my desk and barely took up room, even with the tray extended. It`s not bulky or too large and is the perfect size for a home office or even a large office.ASSEMBLY: Installation doesn`t get any easier than this! After connecting the cable from the scanner to my power source and connecting the backside paper holder, I was ready to go. I honestly thought I was missing pieces because it was so easy to assemble. Once the cables were in place I was ready to personalize the settings. The fact that it`s touch screen made it even easier and almost fun to do. I set up the time, date, and then chose the wireless connection option. I`m not super techy but even I was able to get through the prompts without feeling lost and confused. They also have an option for a USB cable connection which I did try and was even easier to connect to, but personally, I loved the wireless connection and chose to stay with that. Once I had that set up, I installed the driver-the link is in the booklet they send you-and I was ready to go!FAVORITE FEATURE: I actually have a few favorite features that I haven`t been able to find with other scanners that I`ve used in the past. The main one is that I love the speed of it! I can`t stress enough how amazing it is. It`s super fast for either one sided documents or double sided documents. It also scans in color which is pretty great too. Another favorite feature is that it`s touch screen. It makes going through prompts a lot easier and faster. Other scanners that I`ve used all had buttons and if you missed your choice in the prompts you`d have to keep pushing the button until your option came back up again. I love that I don`t have a problem with this scanner!PROBLEMS: I didn`t encounter any problems with this scanner itself or the assembly of it. I`m very pleased with the product and the installation process.Overall, I`d recommend this scanner to anyone who has an office or even a student in high-school or college. It`s light weight, compact, easy to use, scans documents very fast, and it`s so easy to put together. Gone are the days where it would take minutes at a time to scan a double sided paper! Love it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good ProductI received this product for free from Brother in exchange for my honest opinion/review of the product. Storage-I participated in a Market research study and received this product to evaluate. My desk has very limited space for anything extra. I was looking for something small and compact that scans documents quickly and clearly. This scanner is the perfect size for a crowded desk. I can slide it to the corner of my desk and it will not be in the way.Assembly-It was super easy to install the software on my computer. No disk or long drawn out instructions were needed. I just plugged everything in and there it was!!!Problems-My main complaints with this product is that there are not many setting to choose from. I would like the ability to change if I want it to scan front and back or one or the other. I did not see that option. Also, there is a problem keeping it connected to the internet so that I can scan the documents directly to my lap top. That may or may not be an issue with the network in my office. Overall-I think this works well in my office and will work well in others. It scans much faster than the all in one I have in the office. It is kind of expensive, but I think it will be well worth the money.
