Buyers Lab 2016 Summer Pick Award

The Brother ADS-3600W won BLI’s Summer 2016 Outstanding A4 Network Scanner award due to its NFC functionality for mobile app access, touchscreen control panel with up to 48 customizable profiles, rapid speeds, support for a wide range of paper weights and the device’s scan to USB memory stick/drive functionality among numerous other connectivity, compatibility and workflow benefits.

“The 50-ppm Brother ADS-3600W’s robust media handling capabilities, better than average speeds and superb software bundle would be enough to praise its performance. However, its network scan functionality adds a degree of versatility not typically seen on such an affordably positioned device,” concluded Lisa Reider, BLI senior product editor for scanners.

This high end document scanner incorporates scan to email, email server, file, image, USB and web as well as scan to Network, OCR (Optical Character Recognition) software and SharePoint® for multi-function operation, and is ideal for larger business requirements. Incorporating SuperSpeed USB 3.0 for high performance super-fast processing and optimised power efficiency, the Brother ADS-3600W is designed for improved usage and faster data transfers. The unit also offers USB 2.0 backwards compatibility.

With auto 2-sided colour scan, a 50 sheet ADF (Automatic Document Feeder) and rapid scanning at up to 50 pages per minute, the ADS-3600W is a professional departmental scanner for small to medium business needs.
