Rated 4 out of 5 by SPD407 Great Portable Scanner
I needed a portable scanner to scan thousands of documents and expenditure receipts in preparation for a divorce. It scans all sizes or paper (great for register receipts or long legal documents) quickly.
I found two drawbacks to the scanner: the first, and this is purely a personal choice, is when turning the scanner on, it defaults to a color JPG format and I use almost exclusively BW PDF format. I wish there were a way to change the default setting.
The second is the wireless setting. To access the scanner wirelessly, you must disconnect from your WIFI and connect directly to the scanner. It would be better if the scanner could be accessed via my home WIFI simply as another wireless device.
However, even with those two complaints, it is a great little scanner and has served its purpose and is still going strong.

DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT IF YOU ARE TRYING TO USE WITH YOUR IPAD AIR. THE BROTHER TROUBLESHOOTING SUGGESTIONS DO NOT WORK, SO I CALLED MY IT GUY. HE HAS TRIED TO HELP ME ON AND OFF FOR DAYS. I'M AFRAID OF WHAT HE IS GOING TO CHARGE ME NOW AS THIS PRODUCT WILL NOT WORK WITH MY I PAD AIR AS AVERTISED. WHAT A WASTE OF $ AND TIME!!

I had another brand Receipt Scanner and replaced with the Brother 820W. I could not be happier.
Great piece of equipment and woks like a charm. Very good battery life, WiFi very handy. The NEAT receipt scanner RECEIPT software works a tad better at OCSing receipts.
Overall could not be happier with the 820W

Rated 5 out of 5 by roglou Much better than I expected
I purchased this item for copying old photos for genealogical purposes. Because of its portability and long lasting lithium battery I can take the unit to relatives who don't want to give you their photos with the wonder of ever getting them back. The detail in the copied photos is much better than I had expected.

Rated 5 out of 5 by GRIPS So Glad I Bought It!!
I am a little technically challenged so it took me a bit to get it set up. But now I use it almost every day and I love it!! It's so easy and SO much faster then scanning on my printer!!!
