    "Overall a pretty decent scanner. I like how versatile it is; I can use it for everything from business cards to legal sized paper and everything in between. The software is a bit difficult to use and the scanner is a little on the slow side. "

    "No scanner is perfect, but this one has proven to come pretty close for me. It does a reasonably quick job and the images produced are nice and clear, plus having it upload directly to the cloud is a welcomed time saver. It's nice and compact too!"

    "A little bit worse than the ADS2700W as it is not as easy to use and not as fast. However, for someone who needs a simple desktop scanner that can do both color and black/white scans, it will do the job."

    "This scanner is a good option for someone who wants to be able to scan efficiently. It works well with both operating systems, although I occasionally had some trouble hooking it up, and had to plug it in several times to get it to work."

    "This is a good scanner for it's intended use, but I think it would be better if it could scan larger items. We use this for on-boarding at our gym and it fits nicely on the desk without taking up space while providing high quality scans."

    "I wanted a good quality scanner, and this does its job. However, I think this price tag is too much for a moderate use. If you don't need a super high quality scan, a regular scanner that comes with a household printer would be more than enough."

    "The Canon imageFORMULA DR-6010C is fast, easy to use, and adaptable. I bought one for the office and the raves started coming in minutes later. Far better than the old workhorse we'd been relying on. Well worth the money."
