Visioneer is the worst scanner ever made!!!

bynickscarano May 26, 2008
9 Helpfuls 10 Helpfuls Was this review helpful?
Pros Good uninstall utilities, you will need them!!
Cons too many to list here
Recommended it? No

I have over 25 years working with hardware and hooking up peripherals, going back to the IBM PC JR. and hooking up a giant floppy disc reader to it, and building a custom tape reader also. I NEVER ever had problems installing a device like this one. A customer rushed and bought this high speed... Read full review »

Pros There is nothing good about this product or my experience with the company's...
Cons This is a terrible scanner with horrible customer support.
Recommended it? No

This is a very bad piece of equipment. I would not suggest it to anybody. We purchased the unit to be used on a once-a-day basis for scanning small bundles of documentation. We quickly discovered that the unit was difficult to install. Once installed, the scanner functioned properly for about 2... Read full review »

Pros Tolerable scanning speed, good size flatbed, 50 page paper capacity (ADF)
Cons Errors and issues if there?s a paper jam, poor ADF design, takes up desk space
Recommended it? No

We got this scanner to replace our old Visioneer that broke. Our office had it for about 5 months and it finally got a jam a few days ago exposing a serious design flaw that we were unable to fix. We were trying to scan a long newspaper clipping (taped to two sheets of paper) through the ADF and it... Read full review »

Pros Automatic Feed, flatbed, capable of scanning both sides with ease. Quick, readable PDFs.
Cons nothing bad to report.
Recommended it? Yes

I was very happy with the capability of this unit. Ease of setup.. anyone with the basic understanding of using a computer can use this scanner. I love the automatic feed and the software capability of scanning both sides into PDF format. PERFECT... I can't say enough about it. Worth every penny !... Read full review »


Guaranteed Poor Support

Pros Will Probably Work Now
Cons Will Most Definitely Not Work Later
Recommended it? No

Visioneer has a history of not supporting its products. It abandoned all of its scanners to the trashbin when Windows ME and 2000 came along, failing to provide drivers for them. Buy a Visioneer, you will end up throwing it away next year when the new Windows version comes out. Read full review »


Visioneer 9450 Scanner

bybunny1202 Dec 29, 2004
2 Helpfuls 3 Helpfuls Was this review helpful?
Pros I can't think of any.
Cons Not a reliable scanner. Too many returns from other customers.
Recommended it? No

I've returned three of these scanners in a little bit more than 30 days. The first one worked fine for the first day then it stopped working. I called tech support and tried a few things, it worked for one more scan and the problem came back. Called tech support again and was told the scanner needs... Read full review »

Pros Makes a decent paperweight.
Cons Won't work. won't install. And can't entirely uninstall!!!
Recommended it? No

9 hours of wasted time. I'm a computer sales clerk at a major store here in Boston, and have installed many, many scanners and other devices over the years, — but never so impossible as this one! Spent over a half hour waiting on the phone (at my expense) just to speak to tech support... Read full review »


Spectacular Performance

3 Helpfuls 4 Helpfuls Was this review helpful?
Pros Fast, excellent documentation and software bundle, superlative document quality.
Cons A little pricey for most, I would imagine, but well worth it.
Recommended it? Yes

Looking to scan without constantly opening and closing the platten, I searched for a scanner that had a paper feed. I saw the HP 5550c, but did read some tepid reviews about its performance and software bundle. Not only that, the scanner was unavailable to me locally.

So, while surfing... Read full review »


It works perfectly

5 Helpfuls 6 Helpfuls Was this review helpful?
Pros Reliable, easy set up, good ADF
Cons Software: replace with Paperport 9.0. The size of the scanner could be smaller.
Recommended it? Yes

I did backup and storage for several hundreds of pages. Fast, not noisy, no jams.

Set-up went smoothly. Visioneer 9450 USB recognized my pre-installed Acrobat without any problem.

The only recommendable improvement is with the software attached - ScanSoft Paperport 8.0. You... Read full review »


This is a great scanner.

Pros Very easy setup. ADF scans black/white quickly
Cons Problem with Scansoft recognizing my own Acrobat software.
Recommended it? Yes

I have some 10,000 pages to scan, many of which are single sheets, and so began looking for a reasonably priced ADF scanner.

I combed the Net for a month and found no reviews for two new (May, 2003) products: the Visioneer 9450 USB (list $400) or the cheaper HP ScanJet 5550C (list $300)... Read full review »
