Oh, Brother! Hands-on with the ADS-2800W Business Scanner

If you run a small- to medium-sized business and could use a productivity booster in the office, look no further than the Brother ADS-2800W Wireless High-Speed Desktop Colour Scanner.

Oh sure, you know Brother for its business-grade printers, but the nearly 112-year-old company also offers a suite of scanners that carry many of the same qualities – including this new ADS-2800W that’s small in size but big in performance.

Best of all, at about $469, it won’t break the bank either.

The Brother ADS-2800W is a compact desktop colour scanner, designed for those who work with a high volume of documents, in various formats, and demand fast, accurate and reliable scanning.

This model scans single and double-sided materials in a single pass, in both colour and black-and-white, at up to 40 pages per minute – making it one of the fastest in its segment.

Compatible with Windows, Mac and Linux, the Brother ADS-2800W also offers advanced scanning functionalities designed for medium and large offices. This includes a variety of integrated image optimization features to help maximize output quality. There’s hole punch removal, edge cleanup, despeckle, background removal and more.

In fact, a “2-in-1” mode can capture 11 x 17-inch documents, while “continuous scan mode” allows unlimited scanning pages into a single file.

Even with all this versatility, there’s no extra complexity. This scanner enjoys a simple and easy-to-use interface, on its 3.7-inch colour touchscreen, which lets you output to several different options -- including cloud accounts, USB flash drives, network locations, and compatible mobile devices directly.

And finally, we all know how important security is. The enterprise-level security loaded into the ADS-2800W provides a wide range of features including Secure Function Lock, SSL, network user authentication and corporate email address lookup via Active Directory (using L-DAP).
