I tested the ADS-1250W at 300 dpi using iPrint&Scan via micro USB 3.0 on a standard Intel Core i5 testbed PC running Windows 10 Professional. The scanner imaged our 25-page single-sided text document into computer memory at 28 ppm and our 25-page duplex (50 images) document at 55.2 ppm. These scores easily beat the Brother's 25 ppm and 50 ipm ratings.
