In my experience as a TWAIN toolkit vendor, the TWAIN drivers for MFDs will have to get a LOT better before they are an alternative to desktop document scanners such as Fujitsu fi-series, Canon DR-, Kodak, Visioneer/DocuMate, etc.
If you want to see a poorly engineered TWAIN driver, just buy a multifunction device with an ADF and install it. Even from companies that sell dedicated scanners with good TWAIN drivers.
Don’t know why, seems foolish given the number of businesses that would love an ADF scanner for <$300. For Canon and HP I suppose it could be some desire to avoid competing with self, but Brother? Another factor may be that MFD TWAIN drivers come from 3rd party chip company that makes core chipset of MFD, and lacks (to put it very kindly) TWAIN expertise. If you have found an exception please post with evidence (not opinion or “I was able to scan from XYZ”) – I and my customers would be thrilled to hear about it!
