Expert Reviews

What reviewers liked

Suitable for home and office.
It's still fast enough for the price, though, and its OCR accuracy approaches that of higher-priced competitors, making it a solid budget-friendly alternative to the Canon DR-C225.
Speed is the one area where the Brother ImageCenter really excels, earning it a high score of 8 out of 10 in this metric.

What reviewers didn't like

Scan quality is not as good as some similar scanners.
While its scanning speeds come close to matching Brother's Rating, it's a bit slow at saving to searchable PDF.
Color scans looked particularly bad, with colors looking very faded and often quite a different shade than the original document.
