Brother ImageCenter ADS-3600W review


Not your average scanning device

Speed ; Versatile paper handling ; Flexible file saving options

Misfeeds are an issue ; Slow for some file formats ; Doesn't save scans on the go

Keenly priced for SMBs with loads of physical documents to scan, the ADS-3600W from Brother is equipped with most, if not all, the features a small business might want.

Brother ADS-3600W review


A prize scanning package – fast and versatile, with excellent cloud support, all at a price SMBs will love

Simple setup; Extensive cloud support; Fast scan speeds;

Can't have wired and wireless networks active simultaneously;

Speed and output quality are impressive, as is cloud support – and the price is very tempting indeed, making this our SMB desktop scanner of choice.
