brother dc-720d portable document scanner is rated 3.7 out of 5 by 40.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Features @ a Great Price! Originally I thought this was a stand-alone scanner, as I needed something that would play nice with Linux. Imagine my surprise when Brother advertised Linux compatibility right on the box! A simple .deb/rpm download, and I was up and running! I have not tried the windows software, but I can say the SANE [Scanner Access Now Easy] support for Linux is great. With a little batch scripting, I have myself an excellent automatic sheet-fed scanner, no more clicking on the scan button for every page! A note to brother: Had it not been for the Linux compatibility, I would have returned this item. Please continue to provide excellent drivers for us Linux folks!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Confusing! The scanner was relatively easy to install. The BR receipts program however was very confusing to me. It appears that there has to be a lot of manual input to organize scanned receipts. I was under that the program recognizes various receipts and organizes them automatically. My receipt input for the most part was not in the offered companies,in cases where I did input companies they were not included in the offered companies. I do not need a budget program,but simply a capture and organize function so that the receipts can be easily matched to a monthly statement. Do you offer such or is there a function in your programs that does this?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Another fine addition to my brother equipment This double sided scanner (full duplex) will scan to 32 inches in length on single duplex which is an added advantage in business etc. The price was right for these features and this scanner joins my MFC-9125CN and PT2430PC. Ulike some other similar scanners the pages do not skew while being scanned. Only disadvantage the scanner comes wth a clear carrier which is only 13 inches long and is too short for an uneven page scab of the full 32 inches. One reason I buy from companies as this is because they supply drivers for new operating systems and therefore your equipment does not become obsolete.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from disappointed with performance 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

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works as Advertised! 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.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from HORRIBLE WORST PURCHASE I have a Mac Air, Cant get the software to download. Can get the scanner to work. Very disappointed. Do not buy.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Mostly Good 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.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good unit - Doesn't place duplex pages into 1 file 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.
