The scanner is very good. I like the duplex function. The software could be a little better and less cumbersome though. i refer mainly to BR-Receipts. The lack of support for the software is a real negative as Brother and I have heard that you won't allow uploads of BR-Receipts in Canada. Its a shame because the hardware is very good. BR-Receipts could be a lot more flexible in the database dept. Better recognition of the various fields would be a good place to start and adding extra fields (columns) for ref#'s etc. so users can customize it to their needs would be a huge plus! After all, whats the advantage to scanning receipts if you have to enter all the data and correct every one anyways. Overall, gave it 4 stars as it does scan very well in both duplex and one sided modes. Paperport is so far the most useful piece of the software bundle as it is flexible and easy to use.

The quality of scans produced on the 720D is reasonably good, especially bearing in mind its price. However, if you're a Mac user, the software available is rather limited. PageManager Software, of course, is included, but after several attempts to communicate with and get information from their customer service dept., I realised that the only practical approach was to use the included DSmobile Capture Mac interface. That, however, is rather limited, but adequate. The other disappointment is that when scanning regular narrow receipts, the paper usually starts turning to one side or the other, resulting in a less than perfectly shaped image. Regular letter size sheets are fine. I had hoped this would replace my older regular desktop scanner, but unfortunately no. It is, however reasonably good value for the money, and its portability is its best feature. However, not supporting 'Image Capture' or 'Preview' for a Mac user in its drivers, is definitely not a point in its favour.

It works, but fails to calibrate

By 

from Gainesville, FL

Comments about Brother DS720D Mobile Scanner with Duplex, 600 x 600 dpi:

I purchased a "refurbished" unit, it and the software work and are simple enough to use, but it consistently fails to calibrate. I have had to experiment with brightness and contrast settings to get a nice image without print through on double sided documents. The case I ordered for it is nice, semi-ridged and has a webbed pouch for the USB cable.

The ease of the software installation - the ease of use - the fact it will scan double sided - the attractive price - one of my better buys.

I was very happy with how easy it was to install and use the scanner on my desktop. Also that it is portable to use with different devices, and has a multitude of great features. Especially needed it for scanning checks (double-sided).

Fanatastic

By 

from ColÃ'nia, NjemaÄ�ka

Comments about Brother DS720D Mobile Scanner with Duplex, 600 x 600 dpi:

I had 2 large scanners which were part of all-in-one printers. Scanning both sides of documents was a real pain. There are a number of scanners available that will scan both sides but most of them are very expensive. This Brother 720D works great and actually scans fast than my large scanners. The fact it is portable is a real plus. Definitely worth the price

Fast!

By 

from New Mexico, United States

Comments about Brother DS720D Mobile Scanner with Duplex, 600 x 600 dpi:

I used to have a Neat scanner for Mac, but this scanner seems too be both faster and better, one I figured out what to do with the scans; PageManager is different from the program that is integral to Neat scanners but I find its actually better for my use because I can more efficiently scan and store my documents. I'd give it five stars except that a couple of times it's quit working and I had to unplug the scanner and restart the computer before it would work again.

Mostly Good

By 

from Undisclosed

Comments about Brother DS720D Mobile Scanner with Duplex, 600 x 600 dpi:

The scanner is great! Setup is easy. PaperPort is great! although the scan settings dialog could be a little more user friendly. I had high hopes for BR-Receipts. The software is OK, but not user friendly at all. It needs a whole lot more work, And Brother Cloud doesn't seem to work at all. Until then I'll use another product for receipts.

Comments about Brother DS720D Mobile Scanner with Duplex, 600 x 600 dpi:

I was pleasantly surprised at how easy the scanner was to set up and to use. It scans quite fast even on duplex and the copy quality is excellent, even on 200. At 600, the quality is almost perfect. Two thumbs up!!:)

Brother quality

By 

from IL

Comments about Brother DS720D Mobile Scanner with Duplex, 600 x 600 dpi:

Once my scanner was installed it works like a dream. Efficient and quick. However, it was a challenge to install. I had to strip off some other software to use - was incompatible. I am using an unused small laptop exclusively for the scanner and it works great. I am doing genealogy and it is priceless to scan old pictures and documents.

Good unit - Doesn't place duplex pages into 1 file

By 

from Pittsburgh, PA

Comments about Brother DS720D Mobile Scanner with Duplex, 600 x 600 dpi:

It is a nice unit and is easy to set up. Unfortunately, it doesn't do the one thing that I thought that I would get in a duplex scanner - it will NOT place both sides of the business card/insurance card into 1 file. This makes it harder to use within our electronic health records (EHR) system. I followed the manual, and spent a lot of time trying to figure this one out. Finally I called tech support about this. It took a week or so for the right person to get back to me. (He apologized and said that he had been on vacation - which is fair enough.) He thought that the product did what I had hoped it would do. When I got specific about my needs, and he tried it, he promised to get back to me as soon as he figured it out. It has been a couple of weeks now - and still no call back.
