The Brother DS-620 scanner is a mobile, USB-powered, color scanner, that is great for scanning receipts, photos and other documents. We use it primarily for scanning receipts, but have also used it with great success for scanning photo albums.

It is very fast for its size, scanning up to 8 pages per minute in color or black and white. In our experience, it scans receipts and photos even more quickly.
It is also very lightweight and portable, at less than 1 pound in weight and 12 inches in length. This makes it easy to take to a coffee shop, library, or just set it beside you in a gravity chair and scan some receipts while you watch the ducks float by–as we did today!
Another nice feature is that it is powered by a standard micro USB cable (included), eliminating the need for a wall outlet.
Additionally, it has a feature that allows you to continually feed documents without initiating a new scan each time, and easily comes apart if it jams. (It is worth noting that we have never had a jam, though.)
Some additional features are:
– Versatile Media Handling – Easily scans documents, photos, receipts, business and plastic I.D. cards, and more – from business card size up to 8.5″(W) x 32″(L)
– Bundled with a Versatile Software Suite – Including desktop document management, OCR, and business card management programs
– Powered via the included USB cable – No wall outlet required
– Compatible with BR-Receipts- Receipt management software that offers organization of scanned receipts and data exporting to Quicken and QuickBooks
– Windows, Mac, and Linux compatible
– Outstanding Support – Includes a one-year limited warranty plus free phone support for the life of the product
We use this scanner on almost a daily business. It helps us keep track of our personal and business expenses, and having our receipts scanned and categorized saves us time and money when tax season rolls around! As mentioned above, we have also used it with great success to backup precious memories stored in photo albums that we found after Kali’s father passed away. Now those memories are backed up digitally and will never be lost.
We rate this scanner 5 stars out of 5.
