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.

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.

Mostly Good

By

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.

More than I expected

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.

WORKHORSE

By 

from Northern Virginia

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

I just finished a major project of digitizing my paper files. I used the 720D for 98% of it. So much easier and faster than my flat bed scanner. The Paperport software was ideal for the project. If this thing ever breaks, I will get a new one.

Works as Advertised!

By 

from Dallas Texas

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

Texas courts requiring efiling of legal docs so had to get first stand alone scanner. This one on sale at Microcenter was supposed to be temporary expedient. Sits on top of desktop box with only USB connection, works perfectly with included software making searchable PDF docs, a key issue. A handier stack sheet feed model by Brother/Fugitsu would cost three for four times as much, meanwhile this guy fits in laptop bag to take to other locations. Quality is good with hocky puck reliability. Just download software from Brother site for use with other machines.

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

Had no problem setting up but I would have liked to have a hard copy MANUAL I find it much easier to follow the instructions when Ihave a book in hand instead of scrolling through a PDF format.

disappointed with performance

By 

from Garden City, NY

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

Pros: the size and portability. Cons: the biz car reader software doesn't work w/ my mac. When I drag images into the software, its accuracy in reading the scan is about 50%. The other software that comes with the scanner also doesn't work w/ my mac. this includes the receipt software and normal scanner software. Whenever i scan anything over 400 DPI i get a blank image. I expect better from brother. I spent hours online trying to find new or updated software/drivers/firmware to make it work and got nothing
