    Great product

    By Darryl

    from Florida

    Comments about Brother® ImageCenter® ADS-1500W Color Desktop Scanner; With Duplex and Wireless Networking:

    Compared this to the Neat and other similar products. The Brother Image Center by far surpassed my expectations. The cost, setup, software and quality is superior to the competition. Everything is simple and easy to set up and scan. You can customize everything or use what is already set up or a combination of both. Paperport and the viewer software are limitless in organizing ALL YOUR DOCUMENTS. This product allows for you to take previously scanned, saved or imported documents and merge them into new scanned documents. This allows for a complete index that can be searched and printed, uploaded, emailed, filed and stored into the cloud, PC, USB, External drive etc. four drawer file cabinet down to a single drawer of originals.

    Tried other scanners, but my Brother Scanner is much easier and efficient to use. Love that it does business cards and credit cards as well as both sides of page at once.

    ADS-1500W

    By Ricker

    from Rexburg, Idago

    Comments about Brother® ImageCenter® ADS-1500W Color Desktop Scanner; With Duplex and Wireless Networking:

    Works OK, but refuses to recognize wireless network. I have to physically attach it to whatever computer I am using. Every other peripheral connects fine. Also, it didn't have current driver for latest release of Yosemite, so many of the features don't work. The web site was of no help. I feel a little cheated that I can't use all the features I paid for. If the software would work, I'd rate it much higher.

    Good Performance, Poor Documentation

    By tjs114

    from California

    Comments about Brother® ImageCenter® ADS-1500W Color Desktop Scanner; With Duplex and Wireless Networking:

    We purchased this unit primarily because it was one of the lower priced units that worked wirelessly. The ability to connect a usb flash drive was also a prime motivator. We have this unit sitting near our paper shredder which is nowhere near a computer. The ability to store a mail account locally is a perk we didn't expect, and we've taken advantage of it by setting up a dedicated email account for the unit. The unit produces good archival scans at 300dpi in color directly to PDF which we use to meet Federal document archiving purposes. Speed is adequate if you turn of de-skew and blank page skip, but becomes positively glacial with those two necessary settings active. This makes me think the unit is lacking internal RAM to perform these manipulations adequately. The document feeder is also poor in that it consistently grabs multiple pages unless you spend a lot of time prepping the documents for scanning- a problem found even in Brother's printers as my 5250-dn laser printer has a near useless manual feed tray as well. The lack of a document catch tray is also irritating. Brother documentation is always poor. There are no clear instructions on how to use the card scanning tools on this device and I spent several hours fiddling to get the unit to scan to an ftp account. Scanning each card from the desktop software was okay, but the scanner is on the other end of the house from the computer. Brother needs to define "NETWORK" on this device in english. Is it Windows Share, Samba, NT, what? It most assuredly does not work with a Macintosh as a "NETWORK" device. Again, Brother's written documentation is poor, so expect to do a lot of tinkering if you want to take advantage of this devices complete abilities. The onboard screen is bright and will remain active if a usb flash drive is attached- the unit will NOT sleep if a flash drive is attached. That is annoying because I wanted to leave a 64gb flash drive plugged in for a 'use and forget' solution. But the unit draws an obscene amount of power when sitting idle with a flash drive connected versus taking the drive out and letting it sleep. That is a design flaw. The shortcut system is nice, but we don't really need to confirm the setup of the shortcut each time we select it. Basically, It's 4 clicks to use some shortcuts- which is the same as just navigating the menus. The most significant FLAW in this device is if you power it off, it forgets all network connectivity. Power it down and turn it back on? Be prepared to re-enter your wireless network information. Supposedly it takes 'time' to reconnect. Well, this unit can sit for 3 hours and never reconnect to my network. Every person I've spoken to that uses this unit has the same problem. That is a design flaw. Luckily, after taking out the flash drive, I can let it sleep, but I should be able to turn the unit off. Overall, this unit is very much a Brother product. It has a lot of technical options that the end user has to figure out on their own as Brother documentation rarely describes how to use their tools well. It has software and hardware quirks that are frustrating, but don't interfere with performance too much. If you are an end user of consumer electronics, this probably isn't for you. If you've used Brother products in the past and are used to the quirks, it's a fine device.

    Bad design, skewing paper

    By gargamel

    from Chicago IL

    Comments about Brother® ImageCenter® ADS-1500W Color Desktop Scanner; With Duplex and Wireless Networking:

    I would definitely not recommend this scanner. The right side is pulling the paper faster than left and causing scanned document to be skewed. The right and left limiters that should hold the paper to go straight to the feeder are to low and paper is going over them which cause the paper to be skewed again. Very bad product which will give you headaches. Do not buy
