Well, unfortunately I have had a few problems with the scanner when scanning large pictures and it seems to scan one ok and then you have to reboot the PC and switch the scanner off before you can scan the next. It works fine with smaller pictures however. We haven't really tried the OCR yet so unfortunately this review is pretty limited!
NOTE: I have since sold the printer and the new owner says they have had no problems with it so it must have been my PC!
