The description does not mention Windows 10 compatible. Did Brother release W10 drivers, or this obsolete from the start?
Second, this price is about double what competitive wireless portable scanners are, and this is a refurb besides.
Did someone at Woot find these behind a pile of pallets dated “NEW 2008 merchandise”?
Apparently it is compatible with Windows 10–see Amazon Q&As.
I’m looking at this as an affordable backup to my ScanSnap ($250+), but more capable than my old Doxie One (~$130).
However, based on the Amazon reviews, this model seems to have a big problem with jamming. Oh well.
Could you use this to scan something like a passport or a driver’s license?
These are available at Best Buy today, for about $80 more than here. New of course vs refurb. But they’re current machines and are well reviewed vs. the other ones.
The cheaper scanners you’re talking about lack the sheet feeder and duplex option. Those are both pretty important features in a scanner this small. They also don’t scan as fast, and most don’t have WiFi built in. So in other words, you’re comparing apples to tiny little cherries, not apples to apples.
A driver’s license should be no problem. Since this is sheet-fed, a passport might be more difficult. But the sheet feed on this should handle anything as small as a business card, as it adjusts width.
Yes, it’s compatible. Here’s the updated driver info:
Passport is too thick. Driver’s license is okay. New machines supposed to come w/ a plastic pouch to put driver’s license and photos because this is a sheet fed scanner.
Yes, I was worried about the jamming on thinner paper but if you don’t scan thin papers like carbon copy receipt papers it should be fine. For actual receipts its supposed to come w/ a plastic pouch for photos and receipts. Don’t know if this refurb will come with it.
You are playing for single pass double sided scanning. I’m hoping that the scan to email server function is there (scan to email w/out a computer using smtp settings on the scanner). Old manuals say that only the ADS-1500w has it but Amazon’s site says it has scan to email server and a Brother help doc lists it as compatible. Maybe after a firmware update?
Anybody know if scan to email server (not just scan to email) is possible on the ADS-1000w model?
