1-0 out of 5 stars Not compatible with WIndows XP
I was very dissappointed when I got this product and tried to install on my computer with XP and got the microsoft warning that it did not have the "digital signature" and not therefore certified compatible with Windows XP and could cause damage. The response from Iris was they didn't pay Windows for the validation: but similar products (Cardscan, NewSoft Presto, and BizCardReader) whose demosoftware can be downloaded do not have this problem, each having the appropriate "signature".

2-0 out of 5 stars Not for American ACT!Users.Five stars for non ACT! users
the bad news:I purchased and returned the card reader because of a few "glitches" when converting to ACT! First, it does not convert telephone numbers in USA format XXX-XXX-XXXX.You must add 01 or else the conversion is made in the Notes section and requires a copy and paste into the telephone field of ACT!Second, you cannot add any fields, such as ID/Status, which results in "lost" contacts when you import into a large database.

The good news: Easy installation, superior recognition and no-nonsense to use.Definitely recommended for non ACT! users

2-0 out of 5 stars Not much of a time saver. Works 50%
I am dissapointed that I cannot return this to Amazon for a full refund after trying it. The OCR is not as good as expected. It is completely usless for about a third of the cards I've tried. Fewer than 10% work perfectly. I feel I have to thoroughly scrutinize every entry because of numerous minor mistakes. My girlfriend told me not to buy it and I should have listened.

4-0 out of 5 stars A great little scanner!
I work in purchasing at a manufacturing company and needless to say I see a lot of business cards. I've tried manual methods of organizing them, with little success. The IRIS scanner cannot be beat for simplicity and quality. The OCR software may leave a little to be desired, but has a fair success rate. The scanner also does a very nice job on 4X6 photos. (...) this is a good deal!!

I liked the unit so much a bought a second one for home, just to scan photos, as it is SO much faster than my flatbed scanner.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Quality and Portability
After getting this reader and getting use to putting the cards in the correct way I love it.I love the fact that it is powered via the USB port.The quality is great and the text recognition is wonderful.I have scanned multiple business cards from conferences that I attend.I love the fact that I can export the contacts and separate them from the different events.The price is also reasonable.

The portability is a plus and I would recommend its purchase. ... Read more

1-0 out of 5 stars Stinks jams all the time
Jams with 2 pages jams with 10 pages.I basically have to sit here and babysit the scanner the whole time.I could scan my documents faster one page at a time on a regular scanner.Returning it as we speak.

4-0 out of 5 stars Great software, little jams, but crooked scans!
This Xerox scanner is a decent buy if you have hundreds of pages to scan.I have scanned thousands of sheets through mine, with little trouble.Xerox even includes a replacement part for the feeder, which I have yet to need.This scanner has allowed me to tackle a project I would not have done otherwise, it has paid for itself many times over.The included software (PaperPort/TextBridge) are excellent!The only reason this scanner did not get 5 stars is that nearly every scan is crooked from the feeder.The software has features to correct this skew, but it is a bit time consuming.

3-0 out of 5 stars hangs after jams
When it works I've been happy with this scanner.It often just hangs after a paper jam and there is no way to reset it, short of power cycling and starting all over again.This is very annoying on large documents.

4-0 out of 5 stars great on windows
I've had great experiences with this scanner connected to Win XP, using the ADF to scan 50 pages at a time without problems.Unfortunately I just bought a iMac G5 desktop & discovered that there is no Xerox support for Mac OS X !So I will need to keep using my Windows laptop if I want to scan....otherwise a fine product.

3-0 out of 5 stars Good hardware, bad software
This scanner works, most of the time.I am moving toward the (still distant) paperless office, and this scanner has gotten me much closer.However, I can't recommend purchasing one because it has some maddening problems that just don't seem to be tractable.

The DocuMate 510 doesn't work at all with Windows Server 2003, because apparently corporations don't need to scan documents.

On Windows XP, it provides both TWAIN and WIA drivers.In my case, I can choose between the TWAIN driver, which inverts the colors of all black and white scans (the option to correct this simply doesn't work on my PC), and the WIA driver, which ignores the auto document feeder, forcing me to babysit the machine while it scans.I've worked around this in Microsoft Office Document Scanning with a greyscale scan that converts to black and white, but that slows it down from its rated 10ppm to about 3.

The Documate 510 software bundle includes (indeed, centers around) PaperPort 9 Deluxe, which allows scanning to PDF.Despite the "Deluxe" this product is crippleware, designed to entice you to buy the "real" version: PaperPort Pro.Except PaperPort Pro is now at version 10, which isn't really compatible with this scanner, due to the driver problems mentioned above (which are pervasive no matter what application is used, except the shipped version of PaperPort 9 Deluxe appears to have some kind of workaround).

I've tried several times to reinstall the drivers in the hopes of correcting some of these issues.Doing so requires on-the-spot "registration" every single time, including typing in the 20-character alphanumeric serial number from the back of the unit.As an added bonus, it requires you to enter your email address and subscribes you (with no indication that it is happening) to Xerox's marketing email list.

I believe this scanner is actually made by Visioneer, who sells or sold it under another name (4650?) and OEM'd to Xerox as the Documate 510.The "beauty" of OEMing a product made by someone else is that you can take it to market without a single person in your organization knowing how it works.This certainly appears to be Xerox's approach, as evidenced by the product's second-class citizen status on their website and their support personnel's inability to deviate from their call scripts.

So the Documate 510 does work, sort of.I have scanned quite a bit of material with it; my complaint is that the experience is inevitably much slower and far more frustrating than there is any need for it to be.

I am unconvinced that there are any superior alternatives in this price range, but as a result of my experiences, my office won't be buying any more scanners from either Xerox or Visioneer. ... Read more

    1-0 out of 5 stars Double-Sided but Half-Baked
    This product fairly reeks of the "rush to release" syndrome. The instruction manual comes with several separate "Errata" sheets attached, correcting misinformation inadvertently printed in the manual. If you use this scanner, you can't have any drivers for any other Visioneer scanners on your computer, which is frankly ridiculous -- for a scanner that costs $1000, you'd think the software engineers could devise a driver that doesn't cause such problems, especially since many people own more than one scanner. What's worse, they're not kidding -- I uninstalled the Documate driver and returned the scanner for a refund, but I still can't get my other scanners to work, because the Documate software screwed them up. This scanner is way too much trouble for the money. I wish I'd never heard of it.
    Update -- 4/2005 -- if you're looking for a duplex scanner, you're better off with the Fujitsu FI-4120C2. I found it, and it's excellent.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent!
    I have to scan medical documents, sometimes 4 or 5 at a time, to .pdf.Interfacing with Acrobat 6 was a problem at first, but Acrobat 6 Prof and Standard have an update, 6.0.2, and after that, I had no problems.This machine is FAST.Zip, zip, zip!Done!The software interface is simple and unobtrusive.I use a program, MacroExpress, to facilitate the process,and this is the only software I've used (two others so far) that adapts almost pefectly.The warmup time was a problem for me in the past.I dictate reports, then attach other documents to the finished products.If one inserts the sone-to-be scanned documents in the scanner as one is nearing completion, it warms up, and by the time I'm ready to scan, it's over in a matter of seconds.I spent a significant amount of time searching for the best if not perfect scanner.This is it.

    The product support was friendly and good, and I didn't have to wait too long to talk with someone when I was having trouble with the Acrobat 6 interface.Coming from a flatbed scanner without auto document feeding, I feel like the ape in the beginning of 2001 Space Oddessy, my leg bone just morphed into a space station.

    5-0 out of 5 stars This thing is AWESOME.
    For the past several years I have used Epson flatbed scanners for both personal and business use. My Epson scanners provided a very good scan quality, and at a decent scan speed. The Epson software interface was ok, but not the greatest. Last week I decided to take a chance on this Xerox Documate 250, and I'm really glad I did. This thing rocks! I am amazed at how fast it scans stuff. And the scan quality is great. The software that comes with the scanner is really good, too. Much more user-friendly than the Epson software. Another neat feature is that this scanner will scan directly to PDF format. So no more cumbersome file conversion from JPEG's, BMP's, etc. I am seriously considering buying another Xerox Documate 250 (or another Xerox Documate model) for home and/or business use. I'm that impressed. I don't write many product reviews, so that should tell you something about this product. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Writing about a Reader
If you'd still like proof that the average human mind doesn't think in any manner resembling a computer's processor chip (even those computers we love that help us "think different!"), attempt to comprehend the challenge in how a computer "reads" a sheet of paper.

You and I read an article in the newspaper, skip over to a eye-catching advertisement, pull out our wallets and exchange business cards, and all the time, we have learned to scan the item of interest, pick out those words that are important, discard the rest as unnecessary, and go about our busy lives.

But not a computer.A computer lives for those details.And those same details can mire a processor down.

Which in a way is why the Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software engine used by ReadIRIS Pro 9.0 is a delight to work with.The people behind the software have helped to link the scanned data into basic patterns and formats ever so much more useful to the daily lives of the user (me, in this case!)

I initially looked into this review by getting my hands on the Business Card Reader (BCR) device, in this version, roman number II, so that I might make my life easier by managing the growing pile of business cards that I collect, and have collected over the past decade, and expect to continue to collect well into the future.

There is something wonderful indeed about business cards, especially in how succinct the summary of a person's relevance.But I digress away from attempting to deal with this growing pile of cards.

Card files don't seem to work for me.But I have enjoyed manually inputting some of my more frequent contacts into Address Books (both Apple's version and Microsoft's Entourage version.)So it seemed an obvious step to begin to input the business cards using a Business Card Reader!

I will warn you -- skip the software that comes "standard" with the current Business Card Reader II.An upgrade is promised, but in the meantime, consider using another ReadIRIS product -- Pro 9.0 (in my case, I tried the corporate edition).

ReadIRIS Pro is a joy to work with.The install was smooth and easy.The software engine (with all files and reference information) installed in less than 80 megabytes.I thought that quite good, especially with how the software promised to handle so many different fonts and language styles.

I tested the software with both a Hewlett Packard scanner and the BCR device.Switching between the two was very quick.I can see how the OCR software could pay for itself due to some of the vast amount of reference materials still unconverted to digital format (the software outputs in text, rich-text, html and pdf formats).Keep in mind however to put aside some time to proof your new documents against the old.If you have a set of material which needs OCR review, one of ReadIRIS Pro 9.0's benefit's shines -- the work you do to input corrections into a dictionary format can help similar documents in basic recognition of font and language skill.

In order to get back to my original project of dealing with my card piles, I was able to get cards read into Entourage's address book in an average of 3 minutes per card.I'm not too quick at typing, but I might have entered them only slightly faster just by doing it all manually.But -- I haven't done this over time.And, I was sort of mesmerized by watching the scanner process my business card stack.That is the fast part.The other portion of the three minute average was spent looking over the scanned data (automatically exported from ReadIRIS Pro 9.0 into Entourage) and "proofing".I was very impressed by the quantity of correct data, even with "pretty" photograph enhanced business cards.

My business card organization project will be ongoing.But now I have a much better tool set.

I definitely recommend the Iris Business Card Reader, but I also recommend contacting the company to see when the enclosed version of software is upgraded, since I didn't benefit from the full corporate version of the software at the listed price. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars APS adapter works great with Coolscan V
After researching the best way to scan APS film, I purchased a Coolscan V scanner from Amazon and this IA-20(S) adapter from Adorama thru the Amazon site. I never really found any reviews concerning scanning APS film, so I stuck with the scanner that had the best reviews and bought the APS adapter to go with it.

I found that these units were bid up on auction sites to within fifty dollars of the price of a new unit. My plan is to scan all of my film, then sell the scanner and adapter.

The film scans are beautiful! Much better than scans of the prints and much quicker and simpler. The software has many nice tools, especially Digital Ice, which eliminates all dust and spots with no apparent effect on the scan quality.

This is an excellent way to scan APS films, which are much easier to scan than 35mm strips. You just put the roll in the adapter. You click one button in the Nikon Scan software and it displays all 25 or 40 thumbnails in a minute or two. Since I had around 100 APS rolls to scan, I set up the defaults so that it would automatically have the normal parameters set when I scanned APS films. Then I just had to rotate the images to the correct orientation, select all of the thumbnails and hit the scan button in the software. It asks about the file name structure and the folder they will go into, and presents a few other options, then it spends about an hour to scan a roll of 25. I go do something else during that time. I haven't had any computer crashes during scanning, even while browsing or running other software on my computer (a low-end 2004 Sony VAIO desktop) simultaneously.

You can preview all of the frames and adjust all of the scan parameters for each individual shot before the final scan. I found this to only be useful on films with mostly dark shots. It takes about 15-20 minutes to preview a roll of 25. It is time-consuming to correct each shot. If there are only a few dark shots on a roll, then I preview and fix the ones I am sure will need additional software cleanup. Then I scan the whole roll. After scanning, I reopen the files, perform auto contrast on most shots, make any other adjustments, then resave them. Very efficient.

The adapter worked flawlessly for me for about 3 weeks, scanning about 55 APS films, mostly with 25 exposures but a few were 40-exposure rolls. While scanning the last 10 of those films a squeaking noise developed and worsened, but I ignored it because the scans did not have problems. Finally the adapter choked on a 40-exposure roll. The motor made a high pitched whining noise, like some gears had stripped or something. I did manage to open the door and get the roll out. That roll had a couple creases in it. There is something rattling inside the adapter. I have returned it to Nikon for warranty service.

I still have about 45 rolls to go after I get the adapter back. I hope that this failure is not indicative of the normal usable lifetime of this adapter. Because I'm not sure about the expected lifetime, I wouldn't advise buying a used adapter.

Overall my experience with the scanner and the APS adapter was good, but there are a couple things they should add:
1. A reader for the APS film's embedded magnetic strip. Inclusion of the date as data was one of the advantages of APS film. This data could be used to adjust the file date or included as part of the filename. This would make sorting easier.
2. A "Select All" button for easier selection of a whole roll.

I gave the APS adapter only 4 stars due to its mechanical failure after only 55 rolls. Nikon Coolscan V is an excellent scanning system for APS film as well as 35mm. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Great add on to BJC-85
Setup was painless,i was scanning 5 minutes after i opened the box.A "must have" for any BJC-85 owner.

4-0 out of 5 stars Puts other 'portable' scanners to shame
I've seen several other companies try to produce portable printers or scanners and they have all fallen short of the Canon BJC-55/85.One main reason is this little device that allows you to carry both at once!The software is extremely easy to use.In part because there are no settings to change; you can only ever scan at 300 dpi (most flatbeds have much higher resolution, thus my rating of 4 stars).

However, the image is crisp, color is good, and the unit snaps in very easily.I only wish they included a hard case like the one for the ink cartridge which came with the printer instead of a flimsy plastic "storage" bag.It is so tiny, this is probably the only scanner you'll ever worry about losing :)

5-0 out of 5 stars Outstanding Product
I use this scanner primarily for text documents and couldn't be more impressed.You do need text software - I have Textbridge - but I find relatively few errors in the scan, proofreading and corrections are easy and efficient.Best of all, I don't have another device plugged into my computer or taking up space on my desk.Caution - I haven't used it for photos, but it does a great job on text.

4-0 out of 5 stars Works Wonderfully!!
If you have, or are buying, a canon bjc-50, 80, or 85 protable printer (the bjc-85 is great), this is really a very neat extra that works wonderfully well. Let's say you're on the road and need a portable printer with you. Now suppose you get a document that you need to copy or fax, but no machines around. Well, just take out your ink cartridge and put in the IS-12, and scan away! Its that easy. The scans are great. Oh, they're not of the calibre of say the HP6300 or Epson 1200, but they're pretty good for a small, lightweight, portable machine to use in a pinch. The color scans (pictures, photos) are very good and the text is clear and very useable. It doesn't come with OCR, so if you want to edit documents - you'll need to buy a good OCR software (I like Omni Page Pro V.10, or Paperport). This is a very handy, very cool item that works just great and is easy to use! ... Read more

2-0 out of 5 stars Not a scanner for my needs...
Have owned 4 flatbed scanners up til now, 3 of which were visioneers. I use these scanners for archiving books and magazines. The 7300 good features: small, slim design. Easy to use for scanning books and magazines. USB powered. THE BAD:I scan all my images at 300 dpi and 8.5 x 11 inches. The 7300 took over 60 seconds to scan a color page (grayscale is about 25 seconds). In contrast, my previous scanner, a visioneer 9320, did a color page in 25 seconds. Also, it saves everything in .max format (in its paperport software), a format only paperport can use. You can convert it into jpeg format but that is just an extra step to do. I use adobe elements to edit the scan and it doesn't recognize the .max format so every scan has to be converted. So I sit a press the enter key = to the number of scans I made. It's operation was quiet except for an annoying squeaking and popping sounds it randomly made. I literally scan thousands of pages every week so speed is important. MY RECOMMENDATION: I have owned a visoneer 9320, 7300, a HP 2400 scanner and a visoneer 7100. The best one is the visioneer 7100 -- Has decent scanning speed, color or grayscale and the scans can be made in bmp format instead of the paperport max format. Adobe elements can open bmp format and when I use elements to convert to jpeg, the pictures, in my opinion, are better looking. All scanners wear out at 25,000 to 30,000 scans (the glass "wears out" with minute scratches on its surface and effects the scan) so if you scan alot of pages, like me, the $50-60 cost of the 7100 is easy on the wallet.

5-0 out of 5 stars good scanner
had it for a year - very good scans, much faster than budget Canon scanner and feeds itself from one USB cable. Software is easy to use, again better than Canon that died after 3 years of use.

1-0 out of 5 stars I did a dumb thing
I knew that Visioneer had a bad reputation, but when my HP scanner finally died after six years, I picked this one up primarily because I had an Office Max gift card and that's all they had in this price range.The software installation bluescreened my computer in Windows XP - twice. I tried to run the software anyway and found it confusing and hard to use.It's going back to the store.Look at HP - I've had pretty good luck there - or Canon, which is what I'm going to buy once I get my money back.Visioneer has worked hard over the years to earn its lousy reputation - save yourself the trouble of finding this out for yourself.

UPDATE: I researched a bit and found that Visioneer's software will not work with Windows SP2!On their site they advise that you do a full deletion of SP2 and then install their software.Make sure they've updated their software or offered a patch if you want this scanner, but since SP2 has been around a while, it tells you something about this company, doesn't it???

3-0 out of 5 stars Good for Windows XP, Horrible for any other operating system
I am a computer technical support professional and have installed many scanners.The OneTouch 7300 by Visioneer is ideal for WindowsXP users that want a portable scanning solution.It is easy to install and quick to use.Unfortunately Visioneer did not test the Windows 2000 drivers and it is impossible to install the scanner drivers that are sent with the machine.After several attempts and after receiving fatal error message each time, I attempted to find tha answer on the Visioneer website.The support page had new drivers listed, but said that you must install the shipped drivers (not possible with Windows 2000).Then I called tech support, and am still on hold, 45 minutes later and no answer, and to top it off it is not a toll free call.While waiting the hold message states to visit their virtual tech support agent "Sara".That was completely useless.So be warned if you are trying to install this printer on any computer not running WindowsXP.

I bought this card thinking that it's SIIG Firewire Home Video Editing Kit. But when I received the card I realized that it'sIntek21 packaged card. SIIG Home Editing kit packages ULead Video Studio 6.0 basic version and costs 15$ more. Intek21 packages Ulead 4.0 Basic. Software upgrade is I think, worth more than 15$.

If you like the poor working device with NO support - the Visioneer CardReader is just for you!
I have tried to download and install all recommended updates but it doesn't work.
The customer support is unacceptably awful!

4-0 out of 5 stars buy from mfg for $99
buy from Mfg for $99.00 and do not pay Amazon's list plus pricing.

1-0 out of 5 stars Just Does Not Cut It.....
I had to return this scanner because it did not capture text near the edges of most of the business cards, no matter what I tried (Calibrating, Re-Orienting and re-feeding the cards). Updating the scanner drivers with the website download did not help.Visioneer's online support is unacceptably awful. Also, the bundled OCR software is not up to the task. The trial version of Corex Cardscan which I loaded for comparison performed much better with more accurate text recognition and field placement. ... Read more

My mother-in-law is a retired art professor unable to paint or draw any more.I set her up with a Mac Cube and Epson Scanner 2500 equipped with the Transparency Adapter.The adaptor install was very easy and went together in a few minutes.The Adaptor, however, came with no documentation so we had to rely on the 2500 manual--and that was lacking.But the online setups made sense and it was not long until she had the system running great.She is cataloging a career of slides and negatives.This is a great value and a must upgrade for the scanner. ...
