    Pros: Price, quality scans, adequate software package, built-in 35mm transparency adapter, ease of use, appearance.
    Cons: The one-touch option doesn't really do much for me.

    Summary: Scanners come and scanners go, but this one's a pretty straight forward piece of equipment with a few bells and whistles to make the value even better. For instance, the built-in 35mm transparency adapter allows you to scan both 35mm slides and ... read more

    Pros: Price
    Cons: Getting past the unlock error

    Summary: I was frustrated like the general public waiting to say I screwed up again by going cheap. I was getting that unlock error thing and tried everything other consumers had tried but having little money was not giving up. I was just about to do so and ... read more

    Pros: Fast, effective, cut and dried scanning
    Cons: Software allows for minimal manipulation of images

    Summary: I purchased the Visioneer OneTouch 5300 scanner as part of a package in the summer of 1999. The scanner has performed and held up well. I scan approximately 2-3 images each week. However, there are several features about the ... read more

    Pros: Inexpensive, good scan quality, easy to use.
    Cons: Long warmup time.

    Summary: Like most home computer users, I'm sure, I need to use a scanner only a few times a year. For several months I debated whether I needed a scanner, but the Visioneer OneTouch 5300's reasonable price, ease of use, and PaperPort software prodded me to take ... read more

    Pros: easy, fast
    Cons: sometimes have brightness problems

    Pros: Easy to install and use.
    Cons: none

    Summary: My husband asked me what I wanted most for Mother's Day. A scanner!!! He found one at Sam's Club, a Visioneer OneTouch, 5300 Series for $89. It isn't the top of the line but for a beginner like me, it does the job. The Visioneer OneTouch is very ... read more

    Pros: Cost ($90), Quality
    Cons: Speed

    Summary: I am going to say this right away, there are better scanners out there for the money. One that comes to mind is the Visioneer 6100USB Scanner. For the same price, the 6100USB scanner offers a whole lot more. Please read my review on that for more ... read more

    Pros: Good price, reliable
    Cons: bad pictures, bad software, bad printer port

    Pros: PaperPort software and One-Touch buttons.
    Cons: Scanner does not have a locking switch for transportation.

    Summary: This scanner has it all for a very low price with a high standard of convenience! When I was looking for a scanner to purchase, the Visioneer was one of the rare budget scanners with 36 bit scanning capability. The five quick launch buttons located ... read more

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: maybe price
    Cons: lack of understandable instructions, low compatibility

    Summary: Our Compaq Presario works so well we figured a bottom of the list brand of scanner would work just fine until we almost tried a third time to hook it up. The Visioneer is not a scanner to hook up to a top brand computer. When we went through the second ... read more

    Pros: Feature-Laden & Easy Easy Easy to use.
    Cons: Deciding whether you need parallel or USB version

    Summary: I bought the One Touch 5300 scanner about a year ago when it came with a $30 rebate offer, bringing it's net price down to $99.00 - a price well within my finally-getting-around-to-getting-a-flatbed-scanner budget. The scanner software has ... read more

    Pros: Price
    Cons: Poor quality scans

    Summary: Not my vision that's for sure. I returned the 5300 I purchased within 24 hours. I spent over 3 hours installing it and never got a scan. Just a lot of black squares. I was looking for a low-priced scanner not low performance. When I returned it, I ... read more
