Ease of Use

Nice machine for a great price.

on 12/23/2008

Used in a paperless CPA office. This machine serves as my desktop scanner. We have a large xerox scanner for the rest of the office. It takes about the same space as my calculator. Easy to use and set up, although it took me a little while to figure out the software. Easy to use now that I know what I'm doing. It is TWAIN compliant and creates clear pdf files. I looked at other machines with better known names, but I'm glad I took the chance on this one.
