Omg! Where have you been all my life! This machine is awesome! Never dreamed I would have had so much fun With this tiny machine. I know it's also for business but for little old photo hoarders this machine is a godsend! Love it.You don't even have to use a computer to use it. Downloading a little tricky but manageable even for rookies. Best machine ever! December 4, 2014
It works, but is slow when used with advanced features... I purchased this scanner to use with a document management system (DMS) I'm currently implementing at work. The scanner has been pretty good so far. The small size is an advantage on a crowded desk and it folds up to take up even less space when not in use. Setting up the scanner was simple. I did not install the included software; I'm just using it as a standalone network scanner.We're using the scan to network option with our DMS and this scanner works well with that system. However, unless I'm missing something, it appears to be limited to only 10 available network folders, at least when using the scanner without being connected to a computer. It may be more flexible if you use the included software, I don't know. We use thin clients here and I'm not interested in using the software. However, I am able to work around this limitation by using the scan to email feature instead or in addition to the scan to network feature. Our DMS can capture email attachments and route them based on the email address used.The quality of the scanner has been good for us so far. However, the touchscreen is slower than I like. It works, but everything you do in it is very slow compared to other scanners we use.The scan engine is fast as long as you use it in the default configuration. However, if you turn on Document Size Auto Detect, Auto De-skew and/or Skip Blank Page, then the pauses between scanned pages in a multipage document can become close to unbearable. The pause seems even longer when you combine multiple features such as the Skip Blank Page, Deskew and Auto Size options.I'm primarily using this scanner with the scan to email and scan to network options. Both work well, but the number of steps involved to use the features seems to be more than necessary to me and because the screen responsiveness is so slow, it takes longer than it should to perform these functions. Also, the scan to network feature takes more time than it should to connect to the network folders selected... upwards of 20 - 30 seconds. I'm performing these same functions from multiple HP multi-function printers and these devices handle the same steps much more quickly than the ADS-2500W does. The HP's connect to the network folders almost instantly and they require fewer steps to start the scans. In addition, the touch screens on the HP's are fast, so they perform the work much faster and more efficiently than the ADS-2500W. The HP's scan slower than the Brother does, in its default configuration, but when configured the way we need it, the HP's actually out perform this scanner in my experience.So, I give the scanner three stars because although it works and does the job that I need it to do, it takes too long to get the work done.

Impressive & Expensive I really wasn't certain I wanted to buy a machine as expensive as this one. And it IS expensive. Having said that, I will say I think it is worth it.It's small, it's FAST, it appears to be quite solidly made, the software works, and it works with other software (Nuance PaperPort) well. (For the price, they could have included more than one document carrier, because they wear out, and they aren't cheap, either.)If it turns out to be durable, then it may be my favorite machine ever.

Fast and very satisfied. I am enjoying our new scanner. Thanks Brother. March 9, 2014
Great Scanner / Lousy Software Great scanning ability but very difficult to set up for network use. Part of the problem are the skimpy documentation and nearly useless help features. The other problem are the cryptic setup screens. Since there is a build in web server there's no excuse for things to be so cryptic and poorly organized. February 16, 2014
Scans but support is horrible We purchased 15 ads-2000 scanners that have been great and one ads-2500w. The ads-2500w worked fine through 440 scans but than a double feed error popped up when scanning more than one page. You could turn off the multifeed detection and it would work but doesn't work with any other third party software (goes back to the multifeed error). Apparently since the multifeed detection is broken but you can turn it off with their software to Brother all is fine. We're sticking with the ads-2000 with less options to break. November 18, 2013
