For the size and price, it is not a bad deal. The editing program with it could use some improvements, but I was glad to get one so inexpensive with any editing program! I am pretty sure if I needed another one (in over a year from Feb 2017), I would seriously consider this device (especially if the editing program was improved) I also loved the fact that I did not need a cord for power... Just use the same cord for attaching my device to the computer for the power! Great!!!

Brother DS 720
I purchased this Brother to scan several hundred letters my Dad had written to my Mom from 1929 to 1966 while he traveled the world for his jobs. Most of the letters are written on onion skin paper, very thin. The scanner was able to capture the hand written letter even if it were written in pencil. In the later years the letters were written on both sides of the paper, and scanner is set up for this need.
Great Features @ a Great Price!
Originally I thought this was a stand-alone scanner, as I needed something that would play nice with Linux. Imagine my surprise when Brother advertised Linux compatibility right on the box! A simple .deb/rpm download, and I was up and running! I have not tried the windows software, but I can say the SANE [Scanner Access Now Easy] support for Linux is great. With a little batch scripting, I have myself an excellent automatic sheet-fed scanner, no more clicking on the scan button for every page! A note to brother: Had it not been for the Linux compatibility, I would have returned this item. Please continue to provide excellent drivers for us Linux folks!
Another fine addition to my brother equipment
This double sided scanner (full duplex) will scan to 32 inches in length on single duplex which is an added advantage in business etc. The price was right for these features and this scanner joins my MFC-9125CN and PT2430PC. Ulike some other similar scanners the pages do not skew while being scanned. Only disadvantage the scanner comes wth a clear carrier which is only 13 inches long and is too short for an uneven page scab of the full 32 inches. One reason I buy from companies as this is because they supply drivers for new operating systems and therefore your equipment does not become obsolete.
